The Chemical Brothers, formed by Ed Simons and Tom Rowlands,  have been an electronic music force since their formation around 1995.   With 10 studio albums on their discography and six GRAMMY awards, their career has been marked with many acclaimed releases.

One of them was  ‘Surrender,’   via Freestyle Dust/Astrawerks. The LP originally released in 1999   has been considered one of the all-time best electronic albums by different expert sources, marking after and before for the British duo.

The   11-track  release includes different chart-topping singles such as ‘Hey Boy Hey Girl’, ‘Let Forever Be’, ‘Out of Control’, and ‘Music: Response.’ Also features collaborations with Noel Gallagher from Oasis, Hope Sandoval from Mazzy Star, Bernard Sumner from New Order, and Jonathan Donahue from Mercury Rev.
