Hull-based duo Fila Brazillia were the most popular and acclaimed of the noted Pork Recordings stable. Formed in 1990 by producers Steve Cobby and Dave McSherry, Fila followed Cobby's association with Ashley and Jackson, a moderately successful pop/dance group signed to Big Life! Cobby met DJ/dabbler Dave Pork, and the two forged a creative alliance. Hooking up with McSherry to form Fila, the group's first 12", "Mermaids," was released that same year on Pork's fledgling imprint gaining instant acclaim among DJs and headphonauts alike for its innovative fusion of funk, dub, house, hip-hop, and acid jazz. The group followed their debut single with a string of full-length releases which were instrumental in building Pork's reputation as one of the most consistent and respected of England's vast ocean of underground breakbeat/trip-hop labels. Fila's rep also translated into a number of acclaimed remixes, including Lamb's "Cotton Wool,” Radiohead’s “Climbing Up The Walls" and DJ Food's "Freedom" (over a dozen of which were featured on the 2000 collection Brazilification). During the new millennium, the duo released the debut mix for Another Late Night in 2001 and the studio effort Jump Leads early the following year. In addition to Fila, Cobby is also an active member of other Pork stable acts such as Solid Doctor and Heights of Abraham, both of which have released a number of full-length recordings. ~ Sean Cooper, Rovi
