The Space Brothers on the Virtual Sessions presented by The DJ Sessions 4/6/22
About The Space Brothers –
The Space Brothers are one of Britain’s most successful EDM acts, notching up thirteen top 40 hits in the UK alone. Ricky Simmonds and Stephen Jones have also been the driving force behind other major artists including Lustral, Chakra, Oxygen, The Realm, Essence, Force Majeure and Ascension. They have also released material on 10 different labels, including Jackpot, Hooj Choons and Paul Oakenfold’s Perfecto Records.
Since they formed their first project – Chakra – they have released over 75 singles with independent and major labels including Armada, Virgin, Perfecto, Ministry Of Sound, Hooj Choons, East West, Ultra, Sony, Captivating Sounds, Xtravaganza and Warner Bros. In 2004, Ricky and Steve played a major role in the digital music revolution by founding the dedicated dance download store Audiojelly.com, which has since grown to become one of the leading dance music portals on the internet.
Their songs have featured on compilations that have sold in excess of 18 million units worldwide. Timeless tracks from their extensive collection include Shine, I Am, Forgiven, Someone, Legacy, Am I On Your Mind and Everytime. This year will see the release of new material under their Lustral, Chakra and Space Brothers aliases, as well as the launch of their new band – Exhibit L.
As the Space Brothers, they are now signed to Manifesto Records. Their single ‘Shine’ was a clubland favourite in 1997 with the support of many high-profile DJs, including Oakenfold and Judge Jules. As Lustral, their single ‘Every Time’, an ambient drum ‘n’ bass track, received an excellent remix from Nalin And Kane, which allowed it to cross over to the house dancefloors and onto many club-based compilation albums, including Renaissance’s Worldwide – London. Their next release for Manifesto was ‘Forgiven’, which, although successful, did not gain the same reception as ‘Shine’.
In 1999, they released two singles ‘Legacy’ and ‘Heaven Will Come’ – with remixes by trance Renaissance man, Matt Darey and Lange. In September 1999, they released their debut Shine, which featured a bonus disc of dance music remixes of the album, in a seamless mix by Oakenfold. The Space Brothers’ excellent credentials and the style of their music puts them at the forefront of tuneful, accessible trance in the late 90s.
