1996 and Mr Smoothie started off spinning dub and hip hop at the legendary Space Station in Cardiff with fellow breaks fans Phantom Beats and Captain Spec X-Ray. The Captain and the Smoothie, armed with two of the silliest names in DJ-dom head off around the world capturing hearts and minds alike. When he returned Smoothie decided to settle into a long period in the studio.
After a couple of releases on Plastic Raygun and some naughty bootleg style remixes, 2People was launched upon a ravenously expectant public. The Minnie Ripperton sampling dreamy house vibe caught the ears of none other than legendary producer’s Mirwais (of Madonna-producing fame) and Mark Brydon (one half of Moloko) who took it under their wing and into their studios. A few months later and it was a smash UK hit, being used on adverts and driving everyone crazy with its infectious hook. What followed for Smoothie was a year of TV appearances, global DJ dates, remixes for Kylie Minogue, Kirsty Hawkshaw and general VIP behaviour. <br>
