Him_Self_Her Finishing Our Sentences
They say that strength comes in numbers – and two is certainly mighty when it comes to dynamic duo Him_self_Her. Hailing from Leicester in the UK, the astute combination of Claire and Leon came together after honing individual skills for many years on their local scene. All that it took was one studio session to realise the potency of their union; and what a union it is. Infusing all genres of underground house, from deep grooves, to driving tech – right through to disco enhanced techno, they love to play with bold house vocals, be it through well sourced samples or self penned hits.
With their Toolroom Longplayer compilation out now on Traxsource, we decided to drop some some quick fire questions to find out a little more about them. Here’s Him_Self_Her Finishing Our Sentences.
