The Freemasons are a Dance/House/Electronica production team from England. The act consists of DJ/Producer/composer/remixers Russell Small (who is also one half of the House production duo Phats & Small) and James Wiltshire (who also works with Phats & Small but under the alias Jimmy Gomez). The duo is well known for using samples and loops from classic Dance and Disco songs and blending it in with the new sounds of today contemporary Dance genres. The name is taken from the Brighton pub Freemasons which they frequent. The duo also record and do remixes under the similar sounding Fremaison name, which is also the name of their newly-formed record label that was founded in 2005.
In 2005 the duo transformed Jackie Moore's 1979 #1 Billboard Hot Dance Music/Club Play track "This Time Baby" and Tina Turner's 2000 hit "When the Heartache Is Over" into an international club hit as "Love On My Mind".
They were also the remixers on Faith Evans 2005 #1 Hot Dance Music/Club Play and #4 Dance Top 40 hit "Mesmerized".
The act's followup, "Watchin'" was released in the United States in 2006 under the Freemasons Featuring Amanda Wilson name with Wilson as their lead vocalist for the act.
