Information:

Since forming in 2012 The Allergies have made it their mission to reshape funky vintage sounds for the modern dancefloor. Both skilled turntablists in their own right, and known for their 45 only vinyl sets, the duo of DJ Moneyshot & Rackabeat first bonded over their love of classic hip-hop and beats, then decided to pool their knowledge and skills into making their own music. Along the way they’ve racked up two ‘Tune of the Month’ awards in Mixmag, topped download charts, and helped headline the BBC 6 Music festival in their native Bristol last year.

In 2015 they were snapped up by Jalapeno Records, and dropped their debut album, As We Do Our Thing, a year later. On release it gained ‘Album of the Day’ status on 6 Music, and became the bestselling hip-hop album in the iTunes and Juno charts. The LP took in all their funk, soul, disco, hip-hop and breakbeat influences, and featured guest vocals from HypeMan Sage, BluRum13 and Ugly Duckling’s Andy Cooper, who mesmerized in lead single/video, Rock Rock.  

The Allergies’ second album Push On charged up the UK’s official indie album charts on its debut and became album of the week on Juno. The singles started racking up serious plays on BBC 6 Music and BBC Radio 2 in the UK as well as across Europe, with a second 6Music ‘Album of The Day’ and a coveted ‘Album of the Year’ award to crown things off in 2017. Not to mention a feature in national paper - The Observer and another album of the year award from Juno Records.

Both Moneyshot and Rackabeat were successful DJ’s in their own right before hooking up to form The Allergies. Moneyshot was a long running DJ on Ninja Tune’s Solid Steel radio show while Rackabeat was a Drum & Bass producer before being drawn back to the funk.

DJ Food - Strictly Kev has been involved with the multi-producer DJ Food project on NInja Tune for over 25 years, being the sole remaining member for over 15 years. He's DJed the world over with Food originators Coldcut and PC as well as performing 4 deck Audio Visual sets with Solid Steel radio main man DK.

From 1995’s 'Recipe For Disaster' onwards, he's mixed 100s of hours of audio for compilations (Including Coldcut's Journey's By DJ mix), radio and the web using his 30+ years of experience and vast record collection. Rescoring The Monkees’ cult classic film ‘Head’ on turntables or inviting Paul Morley to narrate a history of cut and paste music on his ‘Raiding the 20th Century’ mix are just two examples of personal projects he created during the 00s.
An avid collector of records, comics, toys, original art, music memorabilia and vintage sci-fi books, he's been in the enviable position of scouring the Sesame Workshop archives in New York for an aborted mix album and being one of the only people invited to dig through Trevor Horn’s master tape collection for reissue material on the ZTT label.

In tandem he has enjoyed a career as chief designer for Ninja Tune since the early 90's, running parallel with his music making. In 2010 he was responsible for the entire look and design of the Ninja Tune XX campaign and releases that celebrated 20 years of the label.
His last album, 2012’s ‘The Search Engine’, featured JG Thirlwell (Foetus), The The’s Matt Johnson and Natural Self across several vocal cuts. The launch party was conducted in the London Planetarium with a 50 minute 360 degree full dome visual showcase made by Kev in conjunction with their astronomers.
In recent years he's written articles for The Quietus, Shindig!, Dust & Grooves and Rough Trade's 40th book and frequently documents his collecting finds on his djfood.org site.
