BIO:
Blank & Jones have been hugely important in the history of electronic music. They started in 1997 with their debut single "Sunrise" and were one of the main originators of trance music with artists like Tiësto (DJ Tiësto) and Paul Oakenfold.
During their career they have known no musical boundaries and have worked with Artists such as Robert Smith from The Cure (Cure,The) Bernard Sumner from New Order, Sarah McLachlan, the Pet Shop Boys and Keane to name just a few.
Their sound has evolved over the years and so has their worldwide success. To date they have released a number of artist albums which have all charted in the sales charts and cover such various styles as electronica, ambient, lounge, pop, trance and dance music. Their great variety is also proved by the highly acclaimed compilations such as "So80s (Soeighties)" which pays tribute to the original club mixes of the 80's or "Milchbar" and "Chilltronica" where they bring the listener new soundscapes of downbeat music.

Anybody knows the backstory why they switched to downtempo chillout music?

LOL I'll agree with you. Blank & Jones, although they seem to enjoy themselves immensely while spinning...almost to much, they really should work on their mixing. Their performance at Trance Energy 2002 was questionable at best... Their mix of their own track "Desire" into "Marc Dawn - Expander (Flutlicht Remix)" was extremely short and sloppy, and sadly gave the formula for their mixing for the rest of the set. I have no problems with their productions whatsoever though, many a Blank & Jones track have I enjoyed and spun.

Blank & Jones, props for your spirit and production. Take some pointers from those who have gone and mixed before you. *cough*DJ Jean*cough*

Two of the most ludicrous guys in electronic music business.

When spinning, they're behaving like some sort of jumping jacks behind the turntables, and when they've failed another mix they're yelling their battle call "Freuundeeeeeeee"
