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 Progidy, 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.
