For a year, the pair sought to create and publish music and film episodically, which saw them collaborate with a collection of eclectic figures, ranging from techno bruiser Ø [Phase] to Japanese noise band Melt-Banana and Guardian columnist Aditya Chakrabortty.

'DRIFT Series 1' collects the entire body of work recorded during this period a box set, which contains 7 CDs, a Blu-ray and an exclusive, 80-page book.
