Funky Technicians

Side project of Total Science launched in 1994 for their Legend Records label. Focuses more on the atmospheric intelligent side of drum and bass, with their biggest tune being the 10-minute long opus “Airtight”.

Jason Greenhalgh and Paul Smith first met in 1987, both living in and around the Blackbird Leys estate in Oxford, England and brought together through a mutual love of hip-hop and school girls. Greenhalgh was the first into the studio, with “Freestyle Fanatic” launching his career in 1991. However it was the establishment of the Legend imprint and specifically Greenhalgh’s “Champion Sound”, which really took their profile above and beyond the slew of anonymous white labels that were dominating the music at the time.

The pair started recording together under the name Funky Technicians, with “Got to Believe” the first in a series of records which pushed the label away from the fizzling darkside movement and more towards the epic string sections and rolling beats which started to appear on labels like Basement, Lucky Spin and Good Looking. The duo continue releasing tracks on Legend and others for another three years
