Bursting onto the scene in 2003 with their anthemic Ibiza-friendly sound, Matt Schwartz and Joel Edwards, aka Deepest Blue, quickly became a prominent force on the U.K. dance music scene. Schwartz, an Israeli-born classically trained violinist, moved to the U.K. to study music production, and had co-written "Dissolved Girl" for Massive Attack's Mezzanine album, later used on The Matrix soundtrack. Edwards was an accomplished songwriter working with the likes of Ed Case, Planet Funk, and Skin, and had remixed tracks under the guise of Dead Guys for the likes of Blondie, Chicane, and Texas. After being introduced by a mutual friend, the pair originally collaborated under the name of Zoom but released their self-titled first single as Deepest Blue in 2003 after signing to Ministry of Sound Records. They released their debut album, Late September, a year later, featuring the singles "Give It Away," a huge airplay hit in the U.K.; "Is It a Sin"; and "Shooting Star," which was later used as the theme music for Sky Sports News. In 2005, Schwartz and Edwards announced they would split in order to pursue solo projects. Schwartz released records via his own Destined record label while Edwards recorded an unreleased solo album for Mercury Records, only to be later dropped. Deepest Blue decided to reunite in 2007 and released their comeback single, "Miracle," a year later.

Having worked together for over ten years, duo Sacha Collinson and Simon Greenaway finally broke through to the mainstream with their cover of Duran Duran's "Ordinary World" in 2000. Featuring Irish vocalist Naimee Coleman, the song reached the Top Five in the U.K. and went on to become a big airplay hit in Europe. Before adopting the Aurora moniker, the pair had worked together under various guises including Think Twice, remixing tracks for the likes of Olive and collaborating with David Arnold on the James Bond film Tomorrow Never Dies. Greenaway, whose dad Roger was the songwriter responsible for the Coca Cola-endorsed "I'd Like to Teach the World to Sing," had previously penned tracks for Charlotte Church, worked with legendary film composer Hans Zimmer, and produced music for various ad campaigns, while Collinson was an established DJ. In 1999 they released their debut single, "Hear You Calling," which reached the Top 20 in the U.K., but after the success of "Ordinary World" a year later, the duo ditched their Ibiza-friendly sound for a more acoustic, chillout vibe. Their self-titled debut album, released in 2002, featured contributions from songwriter Rob Davis, ex-Shakespear's Sister Marcella Detroit, and up-and-coming vocalist Lizzy Pattinson. The group scored a further two U.K. Top 30 hits, but the album failed to reach the Top 100 and Aurora have yet to dent the charts since, although they did return in 2003 with an unreleased version of Tasmin Archer's "Sleeping Satellite" and again three years later with a cover of Texas' "Summer Son."

Vito Lucente, the DJ/producer who is the sleek house unit Junior Jack, was born in Italy but has lived in Brussels ever since his parents moved there when he was a teen. His first productions appeared in the '90s under the names Mr. Jack, Kaf 'é, and Hugh K. Lucente debuted his Junior Jack moniker in 2000 with the My Feeling single on the Play It Again Sam label. Thrill Me from 2002 and a residency at London's Ministry of Sound with partner Kid Crème put Junior Jack on the map. Soon artists like Bob Sinclair and Moby were hiring Lucente for remix work, and 2003 found Junior Jack's "Make Luv" and "E-Samba" getting massive spins in the clubs, while the In the House label dropped the Junior Jack and Kid Crème mix CD In the House. Nettwerk released Junior Jack's debut full-length of his own productions, Trust It, in 2004, while its single, Da Hype with guest vocalist Robert Smith from the Cure, was climbing dance charts across the globe.

A DJ, a remixer, and an artist in his own right, the multi-talented Stonebridge has been a permanent fixture on the house music scene for the last two decades. Born in Stockholm, Stonebridge, real name Sten Hallstrom, began DJing in the early '80s spinning funk and disco records at his own club night, Fellini. Inspired by the dance records he heard from Chicago, he made the switch to house music and began remixing tracks with several of Sweden's biggest DJs under the name SweMix. Thanks to an ever growing reputation, he was asked to remix records for the likes of De La Soul and Titiyo, but it was his production of Robin S' "Show Me Love," one of the biggest selling house records of all time, that put him firmly on the map. He soon became one of the most in-demand remixers and worked on tracks by the likes of Robbie Williams, Will Smith, and Lenny Kravitz. After forming his own label, Stoney Boy Music, he released several compilation albums, and began work on his own original material. Can't Get Enough was released in 2004 and featured the anthemic Top Ten hits "Put Em High" and "Take Me Away," both featuring guest vocals from Swedish pop star Therese, and "Freek On," a collaboration with Ultra Naté.The album's success led to several residencies across the world including The Cross in London and Family in Brisbane and a radio show on Sirius Satellite in the U.S. His second album, Music Takes Me, was released in 2007.
