Sasha, as far as I know Kid Paul left the dance/rave scene in the mid nineties, if he has returned as is doing the roudns that would be great news and would like confirmation as you would also...

I saw a doco where they'd turned their hand to D&B..... on the Hardware forums Richie Rich responded to a request for them to performance at Belfast last year:

Shards, yep Cosmic Baby is still around under his normal name and still producing electronic music but not in the dance realm as far as i can tell. He has a website and forum online.

Another name no longer around:

13. Atom 1 (Melb) who was the pioneer of establishing D&B in Melbourne and Australia.

Yep!



(Sorry, misread the original post that suggests the artists should no longer be involved within the industry. Will play by rules now. )

Ah, so they are still doing D&B! David Carbone has had a few releases & remixes released on labels like Industry & BS1. He's based out of Bristol now.
