N-Joi is an English Rave and Techno production duo from Southend, Essex, England, consisting of Nigel Champion and Mark Franklin,[1] (who met at Alleyn Court Prep School) with sometime vocalist/front person Saffron. Champion went to Framlingham College and Franklin to Felsted School but met up again after school in 1987.

Between 1991 and 1996 they entered the U.S. Billboard Hot Dance Club Play chart five times, all of them hitting the Top 10.[2] Two of the songs went to number one: "Mindflux" in 1992 and "The New Anthem" in 1996, which was a new version of their debut single "Anthem," itself a top five dance hit from 1991. In 2006 they returned to the top of the Official UK Dance Chart with a set of remixes of their biggest UK hit "Anthem".
