Biography

Los Angeles, United States

The Dust Brothers are the Los Angeles-based s E.Z. Mike (Michael Simpson) and King Gizmo (John King), famous for advancing the art of sample-based music in the 19, and specifically for their work on the groundbreaking albums Paul’s Boutique by Beastie Boys and Odelay by Beck. More recently, they again collaborated with Beck on the album Guero, and worked with Tenacious D on their self-titled debut.

In 1998, the duo was approached by director David Fincher to assemble the acclaimed score for the film, Fight Club.

John King teamed with Medeski Martin & Wood to create their 2004 album End of the World Party (Just in Case). King also recently worked on the 2005 Garbage album Bleed Like Me. His production work on ‘Bad Boyfriend’ made it on the album, but his work on tracks ‘Space Can Come Through Anyone’ and ‘It’s All Over But The Crying’ were respectfully relegated to B-side status and unreleased.

The Chemical Brothers initially called themselves as “The Dust Brothers”, after the noted US production duo of the same name, but their burgeoning popularity and the threat of legal action from the originals led them to change their name in 1995.

    You're not the music you listen to.. You're not how many scrobbles you have in your library.. You're not your clever shout on this or any other shoutbox.. You're the same singing, same dancing crap of the world [3]
