As one of the earliest and most successful acts signed to the Contagious Records label in the UK during the early 1990's, RELEASE stood out along with other well-known artists of the time as pioneers of the breakbeat hardcore scene that was to eventually evolve into drum & bass. Consisting of Nigel Broad and DJ Rush Puppie, the band's first single, 'Dance In Eden', became a classic anthem, played at raves and festivals all over the UK and Europe during the summer of 1992. After several remixes by Interface and Sy-Kick, the band released the 'Spirit of Space' EP. Another success, this 4 track EP carried the band into 1993. After parting ways with Contagious, Nigel and Rush Puppie hooked-up with Deep Seven Records to release another single - 'The Jungle' c/w 'Musical Movements', in late 1993.
