In 1985 after signed on Wide Angle Records they released an album "Creatures Of Influence", which included the song "Running". After Tommy Boy Records bought their contract from Wide Angle Records, and commisioned Joey Gardner and Little "Louie" Vega to remix "Running", it became an overnight hit all over the US both in clubs and the radio.

The group's next single. "What's On Your Mind (Pure Energy)" became an even bigger sensation, charting at #1 in many countries around the world, and landing at #3 in the U.S. Several Top Forty singles followed over the next few years.

Aside from producing Information Society material, he went on to produce and remix many Freestyle and Synthpop albums for TKA, Red Flag, Anything Box,T42, and others.

After several years of hit and miss InSoc success, Paul Robb left the group after their third album's lackluster sales.

Robb continues producing albums for other artists and his side project with vocalist Barbara Cohen as Brother Sun Sister Moon / Luminous as well as producing music for television and commercials for which he has received various awards, including several Clios.
