The two members met in an urban streetwear shop on Queen Street in Auckland, New Zealand in 2000. As well as 'MOS Presents...', they have released the 'Fools Love (Ragga Remix)', a remix to 'Fools Love' featuring Tuff Enchant with its own video. They were also featured on the soundtrack to PSP/PS3 title Gripshift contributing the title track 'Shift' specifically made for the game, 5 songs from 'MOS Presents...', including 'Fools Love' and 'Mmmhmm', and also 'Fools Love (Ragga Remix)'.

'Fools Love' was one of the most successful charting New Zealand singles ever, spending four consecutive weeks at number 1, 18 weeks in the top 10, and 32 weeks in total in the top 40.[1][2]

The group has not released any new material since 2008.
