16bit are electronic music artists best known for producing dubstep. 16bit's debut release in January 2008 was In The Death Car EP which featured the track "Chainsaw Calligraphy" which was recognised for its innovative qualities at the time.
They produced Björk's first single off her 2011 album Biophilia, co-produced "Mutual Core" and remixed both "Mutual Core" and "Hollow". The album was subsequently nominated for two Grammy awards. British rapper Professor Green announced via Twitter that 16bit were to produce his single "At Your Inconvenience". Their remix of Noisia's "Machine Gun" was used in a trailer and various TV spots for Transformers: Dark of the Moon. The remix was also used in the trailer for Far Cry 3.
16bit won 'Best Mix' at the 2010 Dubstep Forum Awards for their 'Milky Pie Mix' and came second top in the Best Producer category. They produced "I Am the Narrator", a song from Plan B's third studio album iLL Manors. They stated that they'd been working on their debut album for a 2012 release. In mid-2012, the duo split to pursue solo production careers for unknown reasons.
Eddie Jefferys is now working under the alias Moody Good and will be releasing his debut album with MTA Records this year. Jefferys has produced a single for the rap group Foreign Beggars entitled "Anywhere" and also provided additional production for the Chase and Status track "Gangsta Boogie VIP".
