Q: What are a few things you would like people to know about you?

A: Well we have been friends since we were kids and had he same taste in music back then, well we did after I let Darren borrow my Electro 5 album and I never got it back.  Back then it was the old 1200s where we learnt our trade to cut n scratch mix.  We have played at almost every club in London through the years.  We played through the 89 house scene to the 90s, hardcore, to the jungle, to the garage, to the funky house.  Didn’t like that one too much, kept getting told off for playing breaks and then back again to the music we have always loved, breakbeat!
