It was within this partnership that Drum and Bass legend Marcus Intalex first began his rise to prominence, alongside fellow Manchester DJ/producer Mark XTC. Although releases by the duo were fairly thin on the ground, they were quality tracks, and certainly provided evidence of the soul and detroit based sounds that would later characterise Marcus's DJ and production style.

I have particularly fond memories of their Monday night radio slot on Kiss 102 in Manchester, which I religiously locked on to. It provided a really good showcase for the variety of Drum and Bass being produced circa 1996, but I have no idea what happened to the show after this point. Guest DJ's were occasionally invited to play on the show, and it had a really good vibe, playing an important role in supporting the growth of Drum and Bass in the Manchester area through promoting local DJ's and parties.

I've missed the show ever since and it was never replaced. I guess it was just too alternative for the increasingly mainstream station, which has been continually rebranded since, and developed to cater for the masses.
