CHARITY SHOP CLASSICS (53)

Two groups today – dnb from Kosheen and breaks from The Crystal Method. With remixes from Decoder & Substance, Rennie Pilgrem, Brian Transeau and Andy Ling.

Kosheen were Welsh dnb who came to prominence in the late 90s and who featured back in September. Fronted by Welsh-born singer/songwriter Sian Evans and Bristol dance natives Darren Decoder and Markee Substance, Kosheen’s meeting arrived in 1998. Evans was invited by Decoder and Substance to lay down some guest vocals and something clicked. More here.

The Crystal Method are American duo Ken Jordan and Scott Kirkland, who featured more than a year ago. They were pioneers of the big beat electronic dance genre, and one of its few American proponents. They were often unfavourably compared to the Chemical Brothers, who had far greater success in America than did the home-grown act.
