Zero 7

Studio engineers turned chill-out, electro stars, producers Henry Binns and Sam Hardaker (aka Zero 7) made their names remixing tracks for Radiohead, Lenny Kravitz and Sneaker Pimps, spurred on by an old college friend, producer Nigel Godrich. Full of ambient, sunsetting, Ibiza comedowns, their acclaimed debut Simple Things (2001) won a nomination for the Mercury Music Prize and the single Destiny was used in advertising campaigns, film soundtracks and on every dreamy, chill-out compilation worth its salt. Working with guest vocalists Mozez, Sia and Tina Dico the duo's follow-up When It Falls (2004) made it to Number 3 in the UK charts, before third effort The Garden (2006) - featuring Jose Gonzalez - was Grammy-nominated for Best Electronic/Dance Album. Taking a different turn, they produced experimental, instrumental works under the names Ingrid Eto and Kling, before returning with soul star Eska Mtungwazi and folk singer Martha Tilston on their fourth studio album Yeah Ghost (2009).
