The Chemical Brothers are a multi-award winning electronic dance music duo hailing from Manchester, England, consisting of Ed Simons and Tom Rowlands.

The successful double act, often grouped with other dance music stars of the 90’s such as Fatboy Slim and The Prodigy, are considered innovators of the Big Beat sound and have achieved commercial and critical success.

Simons and Rowlands were both born in London and were childhood friends attending the same school. The pair shared similar music tastes growing up, with a mutual fondness for late 80’s hip-hop such as Eric B and Public Enemy.

The duo ended up at the University of Manchester together in 1989, where they began DJing at Hip-Hop and Techno nights under the name “The Dust Brothers.” They claim that they only decided to start producing tracks when they had “ran out” of music to play at clubs.

The Dust Brothers found moderate success, with their initial tracks being played by various DJ’s around the country. But they started to gain recognition upon the release of their debut EP, “Fourteenth Century Sky”, with the standout track “Chemical Beats”, announcing their trademark “Big Beat” sound onto the world.

They eventually ended up playing at celebrity hangouts in London during the 90’s and remixed the likes of The Charlatans and Manic Street Preachers, however as they grew, they were forced to change their name for legal reasons, and thus The Chemical Brothers were born.

In 1995 the Chemical Brothers signed to Virgin Records released their successful debut album “Exit Planet Dust”, which launched them as bona fide dance music stars. Since then they have regularly released popular and much-played anthems, such as the massive “Hey Boy, Hey Girl” and the robot inspired single “Push The Button.”

The Chemical Brothers have become known for their epic, arena-style live shows, whatever the venue. They have played around the world from Ibiza and the USA, to festivals such as Glastonbury and Reading and Leeds.
