Biography (from MySpace) :
"Me&You is a project from TM Juke and Robert Luis. A couple of years ago we got together to do a one-off track to play in our DJ sets but then TM Juke got involved in producing and co-writing Alice Russell’s album and working on his solo album and Robert Luis got busy with his day job (A&R and co-owner of Tru Thoughts). However, last summer we were invited to DJ at the Bestival event in the UK and decided to get together again to record a few specials for our DJ sets: these tracks where a Calypso influenced Drum and Bass track called Last Night and the Brazilian Batucada madness of Ze Zam.

The reaction to them at the festival was amazing and we both got lots of positive feedback and enquiries about the tracks through the Tru Thoughts website and MySpace afterwards. As we had enjoyed recording these dancefloor tracks we decided to record an album together. We did not want to be restricted by genres and decided to record music that reflected our DJ sets and what we felt other DJ’s and clubbers would enjoy dancing too as well.

The first single release will be a limited run of 1000 copies worldwide of the 7” with ‘The Hoop Loop’ and ‘Brown Paper Bag’ (released in May) The album ‘Floating Heavy’ will be released at the start of July and features influences from reggae, hip hop, jazz, calypso, afro, funk, dub step, disco, broken beat, acid house, drum and bass, Egypt, Brazil and Bollywood.

The album is released in June and Redeyes and Benny Page have just delivered some amazing remixes for the D&B heads and Quantic has done a dub version of Brown Paper Bag as well."
