A bit of downtempo for a Sunday from Zero 7, who are Henry Binns and Sam Hardaker. They may be Grammy award winners but they divide the dance community with the ‘proper’ dance taste-leaders looking down their chunky black rimmed glasses on them. Me, I like it bit of something to sit back and relax to.


After studying sound engineering, Binns and Hardaker began their careers in the music industry in the 1990s at a Mickie Most’s RAK recording studio in London, engineering music for British musicians including Pet Shop Boys, Young Disciples and Robert Plant. They contacted their friend and former college-mate Nigel Godrich, who was the producer for Radiohead, asking if he could give them some of the band’s music to hone their skills with. The result was a remix of “Climbing Up the Walls” that appeared as a B-side of Radiohead’s single “Karma Police”.
There are many rumours about how the band got their name. The main rumour stems from a nightclub the duo visited in Honduras called ‘Zero’ which played only seven songs. Another rumour is that their name came from a nightclub they visited in Mexico, named Zero Siete.
