Soccer96 is the duo of Danalogue and Betamax whose collision of synths and drums relies heavily on improvisation having played together for a number of years across various projects. Later this month, they release their second album and above, you can check out 'Feels Right' taken from it.

The pair will be known to some as two-thirds of the duo behind The Comet Is Coming, with this new album, entitled As Above, So Below, following on from their debut self-titled effort as Soccer96.

The album is said to be the result of ongoing experiments in various UK studios over the last four years since the release of their debut album. They namecheck Can, Silver Apples, This Heat and more as influences on this latest record, so expect a free-flowing percussive blend of various elements of electronics.

The album is out on September 23 and can be pre-ordered here. The pair will also tour the UK later this year in support of the album - you can find the list of dates below.
