Biography

The Space Brothers are a UK trance music act comprising Ricky Simmonds and Stephen Jones, noted for producing under a variety of pseudonyms such as Chakra, Lustral, Ascension, Essence, Ultrahigh and The Realm.

Their debut production “Stay With Me” (released as Ultrahigh) garnered club interest and dented the lower echelons of the UK Top 40 in late 1995. Whereas “Stay With Me” epitomised the hand-bag sound, their next release “I Am” (as Chakra) was to showcase a darker, ethereal and more progressive trance based sound. “I Am” caught the ears of Sasha and John Digweed (the latter of whom submitted a remix of the track alongside Nick Muir in their Bedrock guise). “I Am” peaked at number #24 on the UK singles chart in January 1997, a year that was going to prove hugely successful for the Space Brothers, who signed a number of record deals and began releasing vocal trance classics en masse.

Despite having signed to Paul Oakenfold’s Perfecto imprint for the release of “Someone” - the Space Brothers elected to make Manifesto Records their home, and their first single “Shine”, soared into the UK charts. The second Space Brothers release arrived in the shape of “Forgiven (I Feel Your Love)” in November 1997. It spent a total of seven weeks in the UK chart over the course of the festive period that year.
