    about motion theory

    Vince and Bjorn met up in 2000 at the local recordstore where Bjorn used
    to work...
    After some beers and discussing hot chicks and new plates, they decided to
    make a tune together since they had the same views on drum and bass and
    how it should evolve. A few days later already, "Gunshot" was born. Since
    then, they' ve kept pushing the edge of their sound, arrangements, beats
    etc to create drum and bass they really feel.

    After a dry producer-spell in 2001,
    the duo made a tune to play at an illegal rave with 3000 ppl...
    It had no name till that night ... but when they saw the crowd brocking
    out to it like a bunch of Drunken Monkeys.
    The tune named itself!

    "Drunken Monkeys was our first tune to have a decent sound and to get
    played inside AND outside of Belgium, it was the first time we had the
    chance to show people besides our friends what we are about"

    This was only the start; they jumped back into the studio more motivated
    then before and cranked out some tunes after intense producing,
    knobfiddling and abusing bassfrequencies, and no more social life left.
    "Panic", "Hallucinogen", "Cosmotrash", "Infamy", "Steamboat", the more
    lush approach on "Venice" and the flashed out "Fairy Dust", got the floors
    in Belgium moving in their sets and caught the attention of several other
    producers globally.

    "A big shout goes to Arqer and Realtime ... underrated guys that helped us
    from day 1 ;)"

    When they and a couple friends started up the well known Rinse! parties in
    Belgium to support the local drum 'n bass scene they got in touch with
    Vector Burn and several other drum 'n bass producers/dj' s...

    "Vector Burn was one of the first people to really believe in us... we
    sent him some tracks, he liked them and gave us some support. We decided
    to do a tune together when he was over, and it worked out well... "

    Vector Burn & Motion Theory made "The day the oceans boiled"... a tune
    that went straight to number 3 in the weekly top 10 on DOA - probably the
    biggest drum 'n bass forum in the world

    After that they made a more bassheavy tune called "Trojan Run" with the
    Danish talent Pyro... and recently they had some studio time with Dj

    "Toby (Kontrol) is a fine bloke, a lil' nutty but we get along just fine,
    like mamouthsauce and fries :p "

    So now, 3 years, a lot of tunes and several collaborations later... with
    growing support over the years and coming from all corners of the globe...
    Mackie and Nexxi from the Gain crew immediatly fell in love with their
    tune "Airhead" and decided to sign it to Gain recordings alongside the
    neurofunk stepper "Bloodstain"

    Today, Motion Theory has not only signed tunes to Gain but to the new
    imprint "Signal" aswell... and this is just the beginning.

    They enjoy support from people like :
    ArQer & Realtime, Dara, DJ Marky, Mikrob, Random Movement, Burner
    Brothers, Concord Dawn, Counterstrike, Pendulum, Mason, Basic Operations,
    Dj Tags, Typecell, Defiant, Mayhem, Impulse and many others...

    "We would like to thank all those people that supported us.
    Especially Mackie, Nexxi, Emma and the Gain/Signal crew for believing in us"
