18 Karot Gold:
In the late summer of 1989 certain band members went on to pursuit solo projects, leaving Bass player Emcee Steve Swaye, and Keyboard player and Emcee Skelly B to become a rap duo and music producers.
Under the wing of Reggae record label Progressive Sounds they created there own music production company called 18 Karot Productions, they would write and produce for various artists, groups, and also for themselves, and would releasing a number of underground records. But it was the song they recorded and released in 1994 ”Got It Goin On” featuring T.O.P that brought them to a wider audience across the UK, Europe and parts of the U.S. The song got them to tour and do shows with singer Yazz, 2Unlimted, Technotronic, Mark Morrison, UK Apache, MN8, Fredi Kruga, Gregory Isaac, and got them to work with Soul II Soul.
Skelly B would DJ at parties, clubs, and events during days off from his group, but once touring had slowed down for 18 Karot Gold he would DJ more often which lead to him hosting monthly events around London and Europe.
