Biography

Meeting at school and attending Manchester University together, the Chemical Brothers were inspired by the Balearic beats and rare grooves being created in Ibiza and started DJing under the name Dust Brothers. Producing their own white label tracks and building a reputation as remixers, they started the Heavenly Sunday Social Club night in London, attracting the attention of James Dean Bradfield, Tim Burgess and Paul Weller. Forced to change their name by another act called Dust Brothers, their debut album Exit Planet Dust (1995) pioneered a big beat sound with psychedelic loops, hazy electro and swirling textures. After collaborating with Noel Gallagher on "Setting Sun," their second album Dig Your Own Hole (1997) sent them into the mainstream and they became one of the first electro artists to fill arena-sized shows and play major festivals. "Hey Boy, Hey Girl" was another big UK hit, while Surrender (1999), Come With Us (2002), Push the Button (2005) and We Are the Night (2007) all topped the UK album charts, the latter including collaborations with the likes of Klaxons, Willy Mason, Fatlip and Midlake. Three years later saw the release of Further, which was their first-ever project without the addition of guest collaborations, followed by their debut film soundtrack Hanna (2011) for the film of the same name. They continued to dabble in the film industry with Don't Think (2012), which featured one of their live shows with artistic visuals from Adam Smith, the Chemical Brothers' long-standing art director. In 2014, the duo featured with Miguel and Lorde for a track on "Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 1." After a five-year break since their last studio album, they came back with Born in the Echoes in 2015 which included collaborations with Beck, St. Vincent, Cate Le Bon and Q-Tip, who also featured on "Push the Button." Going straight in at number one on the UK Albums Chart, it was their sixth album to top the charts. In 2019, the Chemical Brothers returned with No Geography, which included the singles "MAH," "Got to Keep On" and "We've Got to Try" and saw the pair win two more Grammy Awards: Best Dance/Electronic Recording for "Got to Keep On" and Best Dance/Electronic Album. Their tenth studio LP arrived in 2023, For That Beautiful Feeling, which was celebrated as a return to form and hit the number one spot on the UK dance chart while also reaching number six on the UK Albums Chart. The LP was accompanied by a book, Paused in Cosmic Reflection, marking the duo's 30+ years at the forefront of UK electronic music. The book featured interviews with Noel Gallagher, Aurora, Wayne Coyne, Beth Orton, Beck, and Michel Gondry.
