TJ Kong & Nuno Dos Santos - two generations of electronic dance music. A duo, yet both individuals. Their wide interest in music is the interface that brought them together. Highly inspired by each other they follow their path with timeless tracks cutting a deep housy edge. While aiming at the dance floor TJ Kong & Nuno Dos Santos graze along the warm Detroit house sound as well as the more dubby side of the musical spectrum.
In November 2006 they released their first EP on Compost Black Label. This remake of the Robert Armani classic “Circus Bells” became Pete Tong's Essential New Tune on BBC radio and was praised by DJs as diverse as Laurent Garnier, Peter Kruder, Sasse and King Britt.
And now – after a hiatus of 14 months – they return with a extraordinary monster track called “Merging”. They took their time and put in hard work but the result is overwhelming: an interplay of subtlety and melancholy as foundation for the tension and emotion of Robert Owens vocal sermon. “Merging” will also be featured on Robert Owen’s upcoming new album “Night-time Stories” out on Compost in late February 2008. TJ Kong & Nuno Dos Santos’ debut album is planned for 2008 too.
