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 DnBâ€™s most respected labels.
In 1999 TeeBee founded what was to become one of the sceneâ€™s most reputable labels: â€˜Subtitlesâ€™. 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 (â€˜Follow The Leaderâ€™ and â€˜Cycloneâ€™) were highly acclaimed by the music press and witnessed huge DJ support across the scene. With both tracks featuring on Calyxâ€™s debut album â€˜No Turning Backâ€™, 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 â€˜Midnight Clubâ€™ series; with â€˜Follow The Leaderâ€™ 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: â€˜The Questâ€™ which featured on the historic 50th release for Subtitles. Having also written â€˜The Shape Of Things To Comeâ€™ for Renegade Hardwareâ€™s 10 year anniversary album â€˜Above The Gameâ€™, the duo then decided it was time to embark on the long journey to produce their debut collaborative album â€˜Anatomyâ€™. 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 TeeBeeâ€™s massively respected Subtitles imprint, the two producers have traversed the globe together numerous times since their debut albumâ€™s release; touring both as a b2b performance and also with their rather special 6 deck set.
