Number is a new forward-thinking sound machine fronted by Ali Friend and Rich Thair – the co-founders and rhythm section of electronic music pioneers and musical renegades, Red Snapper.

Rich and Ali started Number as a means of rediscovering something of what they grew up with; the dirty disco bass lines, noisy drum machines, wonky percussion, leering live drums, jagged guitar melodies and uplifting soulful songs, with the help of vocalists Dan carney (Astronauts ), Luisa Tunstall-Behrens and Heloise Gerstein (Landshapes), Byron Wallen and John Metcalfe, the duo create a compelling collision of sonic textures and found sound.

Ali and Rich have performed all over the world including collaborating live with such electronic luminaries as The Prodigy, Björk and Massive Attack. They have remixed the likes of The Sugarhill Gang and Songhoy Blues.
