Mark Rae & Steve Christian (aka Rae & Christian) are one of the premiere production teams to emerge from the UK.
They hit the scene in the late 90s by updating the urban grooves of Soul II Soul and Massive Attack with their signature hip-hop flavour; a creative blend of hip hop, nu-soul, and cutting edge beats.
The duo’s first productions were featured on Grand Central Records’ compilations, Frying The Fat and Central Heating, attracting the attention of the dance music press.
They’ve remixed everyone including Simply Red, Natalie Imbruglia, Faze Action, Lamb, Moby, Eagle Eye Cherry, The Pharcyde, Wai Wan and Manic Street Preachers. Their collaboration with Texas took the duo from underground circles into the mainstream, earning credits on White On Blonde and The Hush.
In 1998, they released their debut album, Northern Sulphuric Soul, followed by Mixmag Presents Rae & Christian (2000), Sleepwalking (2001) and Nocturnal Activity: Sleepwalking Remixed (2002).
