A1 People are musicians/producers/ DJs Simeon Bowring (aka Dr D-Lorean) and Tom Crook (Kidwax). Bowring had previously released two albums as Pentatonik but wanted to work in a different genre). He wanted to make dance music that had a raw electronic analogue sound which at the time went against the polished jazzy Drum and Bass productions that were popular then

They formed the band in 1997 working with many different collaborators and guests on the records and live. They also work as the A1 People production/remix team and DJ sound system, with over 50 remixes and productions under their belts, from Blondie through to underground artists like Black Dog.

Coming from electro roots they based their sound around synthesisers, drum machines, guitars and vocal hooks putting the sound in a contemporary context. They released “Fresh Juice” their debut electro funk album on Hydrogen Dukebox in 1998 and have recently released their third critically acclaimed album “The Yellow Album” . They frequently play live with the full band line up of four musicians and DJ throughout the world. “Happy Talk” is from 2001’s “The Visit”.
