Possibly the biggest act on the happy
hardcore scene.. Real names Paul and Darren, they are the
successful duo behind UK Dance records, one of the best happy
hardcore labels around. Paul originally used to DJ on the
side for special occasions etc. and got into hardcore as it
was taking off in the UK. Darren used to go to all the raves
in Essex which is where he first heard about Paul (DJ Force).
From there, they collaborated and initially made records under
the heading of Force + Evolution although this eventually
changed to Force+Styles.
Apparently, Slipmatt requested the
name change because he wasn't keen on it appearing on his
label ! So, recording under Force + Styles, they released
a monster track titled "All Over" and subsequently
and "Pretty Green Eyes". Then, they released a one-sided
promo copy of "Heart Of Gold" on United Dance recordings
which was to prove to be the major tune of the year and allowed
them to get plenty of exposure.
They are now running UK Dance
full-time and are also working with a company called Diverse
which allows them to release house versions of their happy
hardcore tunes into the UK market with the aim of making more
people aware of hardcore music. UK Dance have now released
over 20 songs, proving that they are going to be on the happy
hardcore scene for a long time.
