In this age of pop music being fragmented into a trazillion tiny subcultures, the only sensible thing to do is what the Dutch duo Arling & Cameron do: everything. So what is this "everything" that Gerry Arling and Richard Cameron do? Some pulsating electropop, gyrating horn-drenched soul-o-fonic meanderings, neo-Bacharachian soundtrackery, kitschy-blippy-hippy-dippy funk-o-rama, tracks for lost blaxploitation films, pulse-quickening beatsmithery, quiet nights in the glamour lounge, and lots of soft rock setting in the 1970s sun. Gerry and Richard first penned their all-inclusive musical recipe book way back in 1994. In those early days they created faux compilations under a plethora of names such as Aloha Sisters, Popcorn, and Aicha; releasing them on Richard's own Drive In/Easy Tune label. Their mastery of studio collage art brought them to collaborate with fellow studio geniuses/hipsters such as Pizzicato 5, and Bebel Gilberto.
