Posthuman are cousins Richard Bevan and Joshu Doherty. Known mainly for multi-layered electronic music, with heavy emphasis on intricate drum programming. A signature to their sound is the extensive use of Roland 808 and 909 drum machines. Formed in 1999 in Manchester, England, they relocated to London in 2000.
The duo are also known for their own imprint, Seed Records, and for hosting a series of events in an abandoned tube station in London between 2001 and 2005, at which they and their label mates played alongside guest artists including Aphex Twin, Plaid, Luke Vibert, and many more.
Although the bulk of their releases fall within the IDM genre, Posthuman have been known to widely experiment, their 2002 self-titled EP combined hip hop and heavy metal with electronica, and their 2006 album The People's Republic was heavily influenced by post-rock.
