I can't tell you how much respect I have for these two guys - Theo Keating (Touche/Fake Blood) and Paul Eve (Regal). Alongside Fatboy Slim and Freddy Fresh, these two defined the 1990's Big Beat movement for me.

Executive Suite and the Antidote are not just great Hip-Hop/Trip-Hop/Big Beat albums, but incredible albums full stop!

Their solo stuff is just as awesome - Theo does amazing house records as both Fake Blood and Touche and Paul (Regal) still does some of the funkeiest breakbeat records you ever hear. I would also reccomend their side-projects, The Black Ghosts (Theo) and The Bronx Dogs (Paul) too
