Artist Biography by

Following in the tradition of similar one-hit Gatecrasher favorites, the Taste Xperience's Russell Barker and Richard Cornish's combination of peak-hour Ecstasy goodwill and the monochrome mental pleasures of progressive trance hit big early in their career. No doubt encouraged by Paul Oakenfold (the song appeared on both 1998's Global Underground: New York and 1999's Resident: Two Years of Oakenfold at Cream), the duo's operatic debut, "Summersault," made the dance elite wary after it quickly, and perhaps prematurely, shot to number two on the British dance charts. The less regal "Highlander" 12" and remixes for the Space Brothers and Dario G, however, were meant to propel the duo even further, but it was "Tantrix," an extended Ibizan slow-burner released in 2000, that offered the band the freedom to spend more time putting together their debut artist album.
