Horizon 222 are Ben and Andy, who keep their surnames a closely guarded secret. From Whitley Bay in Tyneside, England, they run their own Charm Records label, taking their neo-ambient music on the road via a camper-van: ‘Never mind all this stuff about ambient music being designed to send you to sleep. As far as we’re concerned, it should be a wake-up call.’ The music employed on their 1994 debut album included samples which echo their interest in social justice and politics: Oliver North admitting he lied to Congress, and samples taken from news coverage of the release of the Guildford Four.
