This post features remixes of “Destiny”, from the album “Simple Things”. The remixes are by Hefner, Roni Size and Photek, so a definite dnb bias to these.

Extracts from an interview in The Milk Factory:

Were you surprised by the success of Simple Thing?
Yes, we were surprised by it’s success in the sense that when you have never released a record before you have no idea what is in store. Although we did feel confident that our work was good, I guess because we liked it ourselves; but it is quite an overwhelming feeling when people actually go out and buy it and like it!

You were labelled as the British Air when Simple Things was released. How did you react to this?
Yes we have been labelled that a bit, but labels are easy to stick on. I can see some comparisons with Air in our genre, and I do admire their work, but I think our work stands up on its own, and I hope people can listen to it and judge it for what it is in itself, rather than having to compare it or label it as something else.

With Simple Things being played virtually everywhere, from bars to TV, were you at any point worried that it would dilute you work?
I think at the time we were probably quite grateful for the exposure. And in a way I’ve always had the attitude that once it’s out there it’s out there. But I suppose in reflection it does beg the question, does where and how music is played change what music is? I don’t think I know the answer to that one…

What is it like to hear your songs everywhere?
At first it was quite freaky, but after a while you kind of get used to it.
