“Eclectic, cinematic & experimental”

From being born on different continents to meeting through model castings, the backstory of how Emmanuel Lawal & Ashton Gohil came to form AUDI0comingS00N is as interesting as the experimental music they produce. With career highlights such as being guest DJs on Capital Xtra, performing on stage with Samuel L. Jackson and a slew of club residencies in London, Ibiza and Amsterdam – the duos rise is well underway. We sat down to chat with the two and talk all things music, style and the next chapter.

If you could only wear one brand for the rest of your life, what it would it be and why?

A: Burberry! They design for every occasion.

Do you have any advice to give to young people looking to get into music production?

What’s coming soon for you both?
