Dan Tyler and Conrad McDonnell, aka Idjut Boys, are an English duo whose music formula includes combining a sense of humor with music. With tracks entitled "Frogs Arrrse" and "Life: The Shoeing You Deserve," its clear that Tyler and McDonnell keep the pressure and often seriousness of the hectic music industry in perspective. Tyler and McDonnell met in the late '80s in Cambridge while Conrad was working as a lifeguard and McDonnell was studying at university. Both men met at Brighton's "Tonka" night events, where they discovered a shared passion for similar music. Soon after, both moved to London and established the U-Star parties. In addition to lending their own talents, Tyler and McDonnell hosted New York DJs Hector Romero and Ted Patterson. The Idjut's combination of classic house and a touch of techno soon caught on and landed the duo gigs DJing all over the world. After the release of their fourth 12" in 1994, McDonnell and Tyler established U-Star Records. Their release "Not Reggae" was admired by such production legends as Francois Kevorkian. The Idjut Boys have produced and remixed the likes of Lighthouse Family, Sound 5, and Dimitri From Paris. After releasing a slew of 12"s, in February of 2000, the Idjuts released the mix CD Saturday Nite Live on Nuphonic Records. The CD featured a techno and house mix of Idjut Boys favorites including Francois K's mix of Femi Kuti's "Shoki Shoki," Sweat Shop, and Aril Brikha. ~ Diana PottsPortions of Content Provided by Rovi Corporation.
