EDMclassics | 29 August, 2021

Coburn is a London, UK-based electronic band. Its members are Pete Martin and Tim Healey. The duo are producers, remixers, DJs and LIVE festival performers and active on the global dance scene whose debut long-player was released June 2007 on Great Stuff Recordings.

After some cult success in the house scene, their next song “We Interrupt This Programme” (Data/Great Stuff/Frontier) re-defined house music in 2005, with its glitchy, “edit-orientated” take on a party tune. The sound crossed boundaries and borders becoming popular with DJs and clubbers from almost every scene in dance, and even being championed by radio presenters normally associated with rock and alternative sounds. Coburn became popular with “We Interrupt This Programme” on the internet – featured on many entertainment websites. “We Interrupt This Programme” was remixed by a cornucopia of DJ’s of all electronic music genres most notably Jean-Claude Ades, whose mix is used as the theme song in the “NEDM” (Not Even Doom Music) fad on YTMND. A short, 5-second snippet of this song was featured in the television series Heroes, season 2, episode “Four Months Ago…”.
