One half of the Chemical Brothers, Tom Rowlands described the first Public Enemy album as "the record that probably changed his life", and commented that "Miuzi Weighs a Ton" was "one of the most amazing tracks he had ever heard". Rowlands also started collecting hip hop records by artists like Eric B and Schoolly D. In July 1995, The Chemical Brothers released their debut album Exit Planet Dust on Freestyle Dust/Junior Boy's Own. It entered the UK charts at No. 9and featured guest vocalist Beth Orton on the song "Alive Alone". It eventually went on to sell over a million copies worldwide. Shortly after its release, The Chemical Brothers signed to Virgin Records, to which they took their own offshoot label, Freestyle Dust.
The Chemical Brothers still produces records to this day, and has gone from success to success. They are often praised as being one of the few truly arena-sized electronic acts. In addition to performing their own music, they also hold regular DJ nights where they mix other artists' tracks.
