Meeting in 1988, in the Legendary Manchester club, the Hacienda, K-Klass soon teamed up with vocalist Bobbi Depasois (who they work with to this day). Hits such as “Rhythm is a Mystery” and “Let Me Show You” soon followed. In the early days the group were best known for their live performances, notching up over 300 full live shows. They cut their teeth playing live at huge raves as well as iconic clubs such as The Hacienda, Cream, Ministry of Sound and many others. Offers of remix and production work followed the hit records. In 1995 K-Klass won the International Dance Awards Remixer Of The Year Award, then followed that in 2002 with a GRAMMY Nomination. The 44th annual Grammy’s saw K-Klass nominated as the first UK artist ever in the best remix category.
