The Non-Functional Saints are Nick Lewis and Phil Minns. They make organic electronic music. Shifting soundscapes and soil-deep beats. Animated textures and mangled walls of noise.
They first met at Alton College, UK studying Music Tech A Level 2001-2003. Both became self-confessed disciples of their teacher at the time – the late British avant-classical composer Martin Read. They bonded over a shared interest in the Warp and Ninja Tune releases of the time – in retrospect, a golden age of electronic experimentation.
