From opposite sides of the country Faydz (Wiltshire) and Twista (London) had never met before, let alone mixed together, but there was a chemistry between them straight away, their styles combining beautifully and they absolutely tore the dance floor to pieces that night (with one of their now legendary ‘Rave Mash Up’ sets) mixing and scratching up the very best in Old Skool anthems alongside the fresh sounds of Nu-Rave (90’s sounding Hardcore and Jungle music with modern production techniques) that they were both fully supporting at the time (and still do to this day) After the success of that first set, promoters started to book them together in their own Old Skool Mash Up arenas at events across the UK and abroad including Hardcore Til I Die, Slammin Vinyl, Uproar, Helter Skelter, Fantazia, Raindance, Innovation, Moondance, Raindance, Epidemik, Retro Trax and Raver Baby.
