Calyx & TeeBee’s first collaborations emerged in 2004, but their history and friendship dates back to 1998 when they were introduced as label-mates of the legendary Moving Shadow imprint. In the following years the two artists accumulated an astounding back-catalogue of releases on a glittering array of DnB’s most respected labels.
In 1999 TeeBee founded what was to become one of the scene’s most reputable labels: ‘Subtitles’. The imprint grew from being a home for his own productions to a multi-artist label that is now highly revered by producers and DJs alike as a flag-bearer for the cutting-edge of forward-thinking Drum and Bass.
When Calyx and TeeBee finally decided it was time to work together in the studio, the first two tracks they produced (‘Follow The Leader’ and ‘Cyclone’) were highly acclaimed by the music press and witnessed huge DJ support across the scene. With both tracks featuring on Calyx’s debut album ‘No Turning Back’, they went on to gain enormous exposure for the duo as Rockstar games used their music as the soundtracks for a global advertising campaign for the latest installment of the colossal ‘Midnight Club’ series; with ‘Follow The Leader’ featuring on a lengthy TV commercial that gained huge publicity by being given blanket prime-time coverage for several months in every world territory.
In 2006 Calyx & TeeBee produced one of their landmark releases of the year: ‘The Quest’ which featured on the historic 50th release for Subtitles. Having also written ‘The Shape Of Things To Come’ for Renegade Hardware’s 10 year anniversary album ‘Above The Game’, the duo then decided it was time to embark on the long journey to produce their debut collaborative album ‘Anatomy’. Released in 2007 on their own Momentum Music, ‘Anatomy’ blew apart the drum & bass sales charts and cemented their reputation as the scene’s heavy hitters.
Now hard at work on a follow up, along with running of TeeBee’s massively respected Subtitles imprint, the two producers have traversed the globe together numerous times since their debut album’s release; touring both as a b2b performance and also with their rather special 6 deck set.
