Death of Hi Fi, a 3 piece electronic band out of the UK, After their first album; Anthropocene, was released to critical acclaim in 2012 they have been working hard on the follow up (appropriately named Follow) whilst touring, playing festivals and releasing singles.
Their first album featured numerous collaborators from around the globe and was dubbed “the greatest Hip Hop album to emerge from Oxford”. This album sees the addition of Lucy on vocals with minimal extra features to create a much more focused sound.
The album deals with a personal viewpoint of the world; love, loss and the eventual redemption. From alienation and despair to learning what it means to be human again.
“..’Follow’ is a superb album: dark, troubled and turbulent at times, but ultimately a wonderful piece of art.
While less of a straight-up hip hop album than its predecessor, it’s possibly an even better record than `Anthropocene’, ..” – Nightshift
They have been played on prime time BBC TV as well as on radio shows around the globe. They blend influences such as Electronica, Hip Hop, Downtempo, Rock, Dub and much more in what they refer to loosely as Genre-Hop.

Started by Andy Hill as an experimental instrumental project inspired by the LA beats scene, DoHF took a different turn after a chance meeting on record store day with Dan Clear. The project quickly morphed into a live music and visual show exploring both of their influences. After some early EPs, they created a debut album featuring worldwide collaborations.
Looking to expand the live experience, they decided to invite singer Lucy Cropper to front the band and perform their songs onstage. Refusing to be pigeonholed into a genre, their sound again morphed into more song-based rather than the heavier Hip Hop influence of their earlier work.
The album is available for download from online stores (iTunes, etc) as well from their website (www.deathofhifi.com)
