Steve Mason is something of an enigma. You know him as the frontman of the most original band to come out of Scotland in recent times Š we just ainÕt allowed to repeat it. Black Affair is his new electro pop fashion outfit. It's tightly bound with digital lust and black gloves, sexual undertows and Issey Miyake. It conjures a midnight encounter with a man or woman, a secret moment known only to the couple, which will never be spoken of but will remain in their thoughts forever.
Striking, bewitching, wet and warm. Too busy looking good. It's simple. The crowd moves, people wink and smile. It's fun with a little tension. What could be better?
"Timbaland in Kraftwerk's laboratory. Eerie horror-film synths meet with staccato percussion as Steve's distinctive, laconic vocals deliver an ambiguous spin on R&B raunch" [THE GUARDIAN]
"Specialising in knowing beatbox love jams and neon-noir torchsongs which recall Hot Chip at their most heart-rending, Black Affair's music is unnerving and addictive" [FACT MAGAZINE]
