MM: Setting Sun by The Chemical Brothers

Tom Rowlands and Ed Simons met up in the early nineties at the University of Manchester, where they immersed themselves in the city's dance music scene. Finding a lack of material for their DJ sets they decided to start making their own music, initially as the Dust Brothers, in homage to the US music producers most famous for their work with the Beastie Boys. As they became more popular the original Dust Brothers threatened legal action over the name, and they decided to rename themselves as the Chemical Brothers.

The duo went on to become major innovators of a type of electronic music known as Big Beat, alongside Fatboy Slim and Leftfield. In 1996 they released 'Setting Sun', for which Oasis' Noel Gallagher provided the vocals. The single reached the top spot in the UK, and appeared on the duo's second album Dig Your Own Hole.

I didn't realise that embedding had been disabled for this clip, It would have been nice if YouTube had notified me. Thanks for the comment, and I will check out your blog.
