A friendship grew as they kept in touch and Israel became a supporter of Sergio’s early solo productions. By 2005, they were at the centre of their own scene, playing out together, bringing international DJs to Venezuela and their Undersounds parties, later picking up gigs across the pond from Barcelona to Ibiza as well as touring South America. With Israel now working on his own material, crunch time came in Barcelona, Summer 2010 when the pair decided to develop their sound collectively, taking inspiration from their travels on the continent and intent on making something fresh and futuristic, with shades of the soul, funk and disco music they share as influences. Combined with the omnipresence of Latin music growing up, a formative cocktail of Giorgio Moroder, Larry Levan and the La Fania All Stars and Salsa Brava led to a vibrant musical philiosophy and powerful desire to work their magic on the dancefloor. The Fur Coat project was born. The duo’s debut outing came on Rebels offshoot label RebelLION with a slick remix of Russ Yallop’s ‘The Crossroads’ and now, with the backing of the underground’s most prolific label, Crosstown Rebels, an upcoming single featuring Big Bully and album expected in 2012, Fur Coat is about to fly in full effect.
