With a unique live show that combines hip hop and cutting edge original dance music into a bass heavy dancefloor sound the duo are constantly pushing forward in new directions. Searching for the most innovative techniques and unique sounds, Blunt Instrument explore new and adventurous ways to get the dancefloor moving.
