Rickmansworth brothers Joe and Dom Berditch have been making music together for a good couple of years now.

Fusing their own brand of electro-funk with anything form punk to soul, they represent two thirds of the deliciously named, irresistibly catchy Toxic Funk Berry.

If you’ve not seen the Berry live then you’re certainly not alone. Playing most of their gigs in the trendier bars and clubs on North London the lads are, by their own admission, a little known, and even reclusive act.

This status could, however, be about to change, thanks in no small part to a stellar gig on Friday night in front of a heaving crowd at the Camden Roundhouse.

Joined by drummer Jonny Wharton (a recent addition to “beef up” their sound) the guys had the honour of kicking off the inaugural and aptly named Turing Point Festival – a two day celebration of music, arts, film and youth culture featuring Zane Lowe, Beardyman, and the Pipettes, to name but a few.

Handpicked by the festival organisers to open the event, TFB certainly didn’t disappoint.

“It was a dream come true for us,” explained Dom, his voice full of barely contained glee as we chatted on Tuesday.

“A few months ago we were playing a gig in a club over the road from the roundhouse. We turned to each other and said how great it would be to play there but never dreamed we’d actually get the chance. We couldn’t believe it when we got chosen, especially as we were asked to open.”

Indeed, the organisers showed a great deal of faith in an act that is yet to release any official material and has been in existence for less than two years. So they did they live up to expectation on their big night?

“It was the biggest gig of our lives,” adds Dom, “but it went fantastically; everyone seemed to love what we were doing and we got some great feedback after.

“That meant a lot to us because we really want to make this work as a live act and take what we’re doing to the biggest audience possible.”

For acts like TFB, however, this is easier said than done. With an act that essentially consists of mixing other artists’ work with their own compositions (known in the trade as a ‘mash up’) it’s far from easy to express the necessary passion and flair to a live audience.

As Dom explains, TFB tread a fine and carefully planned line between traditional DJs and live bands – a route successfully navigated in the past by such luminaries as Run DMC* and Gorillaz.

“We’ve all been in traditional live bands for years,” adds the former punk band veteran. “The TFB project gives us the excitement of playing live but allows us so much more creativity. We can literally do anything we like on stage and that’s an amazing feeling.”

TFB are attempting to secure numerous other festival slots this summer and will next be playing live at Camden’s Fly Bar at 8pm on May 28.
