They toured the globe, played clubs and events such as Cocoon, Berlin Love Parade, Nature One, Ministry Of Sound, and The Royal Albert Hall, and worked with various prominent artists such as Earth, Wind & Fire, Arthur Baker, Jean-Michel Jarre, Simply Red, and more. Russell left the trio in 2006 to pursue another project.
