History[edit]

Olly Maw (previously with South London grunge band Spire) and Dan Hayes met as bassist and DJ (respectively) in 2000, and formed what, in its early days, was a dub act. In 2004 Tushar Joshi joined on electro drums after a chance encounter at Blissfields festival 2003. The band then concentrated on the live performance of electro music-orientated music.

The band soon found themselves breaking on to the UK festival scene, with appearances at Glastonbury, Bestival, Blissfields.

The band continue to play at many festivals in the summer months, and at clubs up and down the country throughout the year.
