Many different terms have been applied to them to describe their style, including , , , , and . After forming their own record label, Surface Noise Records, in February 2006 Smith began writing and demoing the first Hadouken! tracks. The band was formed in October 2006 with Daniel Rice’s brother, drummer Nick Rice (born 1988) and James Smith’s girlfriend Alice Spooner who plays synths. In December 2006 they added bassist Chris Purcell (born 1986) to their lineup. Nick Rice’s brother Steve Rice was originally the band’s drummer, though pulled out after two weeks.

In February 2007 the band released their first record, a two song vinyl with the song “That Boy That Girl”, which gained mainstream popularity after the video, directed by friend Bob Harlow, made it onto MTV2. Shortly after the video, the band added bassist Chris Purcell. After releasing their 12-track mixtape “Not Here To Please You” on November 12, 2007 featuring originals and remixes, the band returned to the studio to complete their debut album Music for an Accelerated Culture. This featured nine new songs as well as the single “Liquid Lives” and was released on May 5th 2008. It achieved reasonable success reaching 12th in the UK album charts.

In mid-2009, the band recorded their second studio album, For the Masses, in Holland with drum and bass producers Noisia. The band described the new album as being different, both lyrically and musically.

    For The Masses просто огонь, а Every Weekend ни разу не хуже, но какой-то более спокойный получился. Жду не дождусь новых релизов.

    Побольше бы таких треков как Turn The Lights, Bombshock, Parasite - взрывные просто! А остальные довольно скучные.

    В дабстеп обратились потому что спрос рождает предложения, проще говоря ремиксы от дабстеп музыкантов заходят лучше чем оригиналы.
