Total Science

The pair first met in 1987, both living on Blackbird Leys estate in Oxford, England and brought together through a mutual love of hip-hop. Distracted by the arrival of hardcore in the early nineties, record collecting was quickly followed by DJing and eventually production.

In 1994, the pair started recording together, with "Got To Believe" the first in a series of records which pushed the label away from the fizzling darkside movement and more towards the epic string sections and rolling beats which started to appear on labels like Lucky Spin Recordings, Basement Records and Good Looking Records. They also worked Saturdays in the Record Basement shop in Reading.

After six years of recording singles for others, the pair established the C.I.A. label in the closing months of 1997 with the help of Brillo from Timeless Recordings.
