"Theme from S'Express" was among the very first records from the U.K.'s house scene to become a mainstream hit, and its success prompted Moore and Gabriel to cut an album, 1989's Original Soundtrack, which featured their first hit and two other tunes that went Top Ten in the U.K., "Superfly Guy" and "Hey Music Lover." While a number of collaborators were credited on Original Soundtrack along with Moore and Gabriel, for the 1990 follow-up, Intercourse, Moore was joined only by DJ Sonique
, and while the album spawned three singles ("Mantra for a State of Mind," "Nothing to Lose," and "Find 'Em, Fool 'Em, Forget 'Em"), it didn't match the commercial success of the earlier LP. Moore and Sonique
parted ways, and except for a remixed version of "Theme from S'Express" that charted in 1996, it was the last that would be heard from S'Express until 2006, when Moore revived the handle for a one-off single, "Stupid Little Girls." Moore has gone on to a successful career as a producer and remixer, club proprietor, and label chief, and is still one of the U.K.'s most in-demand club DJs. In 2016, Moore revived the S'Express name again for an album of remixes, Enjoy This Trip, that featured classic songs given modern updates by Horse Meat Disco, Kamp!
