Formed in 1985, Stereo MCs hit the public's attention with 1990 album Supernatural and single Elevate My Mind.
It was 1992 follow up Connected, with hit singles of the same name and Step It Up that confirmed their status at the front of a burgeoning UK hip hop scene.
After an extended hiatus, the group released fourth album Deep Down and Dirty in 2001.
Now, with a new cast of collaborators helping to extend their circle of influences once more and further diversifying their sound, Paradise is the Stereo MCs stepping out into the sunshine once again. Crucially for the band they have rediscovered a place where their enthusiasm can have free reign and organised chaos can bear the fruits of a fifth album that was as enjoyable to create as it is to hear.
