Breeder was a production duo of Rowan Blades and Simon Noble. They met through a mutual friend and swiftly headed into the studio to remix one of Simon's compositions with Paul Welding, 'Make It Funky', which they'd recorded as Rebound. They ended up making a brand new track, which was 'The Chain' and the duo's first single. Along with their second single, 'Twilo Thunder', the duo had commercial success, having first appeared on Sasha - Global Underground 009: San Francisco compilation. Breeder split in 2001.
