Determinedtobecome involved in this new and exciting scene, they set out on a path to become DJs and bought their first deckstogether in October 1991. Around this time they met an aspiring young artist by the name of Goldie and beganaregularshow on London pirate Touchdown FM, with Goldie host- ing on the mic for the two upcoming DJs.
