Silicone Soul


Successful Scottish house production duo comprising Craig Morrison and Graeme Reedie, who first met in Milngavie, Scotland and became friends through their shared interest in punk. They formed a band, Dead City Radio but soon discovered dance music at the end of the 80s, during the "Madchester" or "baggy" period when dance and indie styles converged. Morrison and Reedie were converted to the power of dance beats after attending the famous "Slam" nights at the Arches in Glasgow and seeing Primal Scream perform at the club. As Morrison's interest in electronic percussion and dance records developed, he bought some turntables and he and Reedie began to DJ at parties and events throughout Scotland. They secured a residency at the Jungle Palace in Inverness, establishing friendships with many of the area's respected DJs. Eventually, in 1996, the pair established their own recording studio and record label, Depth Perception Records. A string of house tracks followed, and were good enough to catch the attention of the head of independent dance label, Soma Records, who signed Morrison and Reedie as Silicone Soul in 1998. The duo's first two releases "Climbing Walls" and its follow-up, "All Nite Long", were popular with heavyweight DJs such as Pete Tong, Laurent Garnier and Andrew Weatherall. Weatherall included the track on his mix compilation, the Heavenly Social Mix. Their track, "Right On 4 Tha Darkness", (it featured substantial sampling of Curtis Mayfield's "Right On For The Darkness") became a hugely popular club hit in the UK and Ibiza. When it was re-released in 2001 as "Right On", it entered the UK Top 40 after much airplay on BBC national radio. It was also given a tribal house makeover by Steve Lawler. Their debut, A Soul Thing, was underpinned by funk and house influences and was widely well-received by the UK dance music press. They continue to DJ and remix for their labelmates and numerous other UK-based house artists.
