THICK N THIN is the musical love-child of Thomas Hildebrand and Josh Doubles, born out of an accidental studio collaboration. Their music is a polyamorous exploration of a genre-fluid relationship between house, techno, disco, and minimal. They’re driven to create melodic, dancefloor-centric music that blurs boundaries while avoiding tech-house clichés and always keeping it weird.
Influenced by the ideas of Cage and musique concrete, Thomas Hildebrand’s solo work emphasizes sounds of the physical world. Using his relative outsider status in the crowded techno scene as a virtue, Hildebrand has been forging his “found house” sound, which balances proper club and couch listening. Look for his past releases and remixes on Make Mistakes, Microcosm Music, Anticipate Recordings, Designforms, Untitled & After, and Biatchcorp. Josh Doubles is a seasoned musician and DJ of more than 20 years. He co-founded Jet-Lag and A Fleeting Affair (with Thomas Hildebrand and friends) to organize events throughout NYC. His DJ sensibilities were shaped by organizing small- and large-scale events since ’95 including the infamous Triple X Music raves in upstate New York in the 90′s. He believes in diverse sets and can move the dance floor at 4am or bend ears and minds at after hours.
