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