In 1997, Richard Earnshaw and Mark "Bamo" Bamford met on the South Coast of England and soon their mutual appreciation of music, in particular electronic dance music became apparent. With the two coming from different ends of the spectrum, Bamo from the DJ side and Richard from the production side, the ultimate result was a solid understanding of music right through the process of making to playing the tracks.
It didn't take long for them to find their feet in the studio and went straight in with a string of releases on notorious deep house label Niche Records. Their very first release "In Your Hands" found its way into a number of high profile record boxes and compilations. Concentrating mainly on creating original music they have still produced a number of remixes with the likes of Dido (BMG), Nina Jayne (BMG), Dave Storm (Ceremony), Rasmus Faber, Hardsoul, Sebastian Davidson, Marco Del Horno (Bullet Train Recs) and many others.
In 2004, Spiritchaser became the solid foundation of newly formed Guess Records, the deeper offshoot label of Duffnote/One51. It has been since the close affiliation with Guess that Spiritchaser settled into the sound that is now featuring in compilations and playlists all over the world with successes such as their Terrace remix of The Craftsmen "One Day" (which featured on Pete Tongs Essential Show on Radio 1 and also on the Ben Watt - Live At Plastic People mix (DJ Mag - Volume 4 / No.38), and more recently their "Spiritlevel" series which have featured highly in the Beatport charts. Also producing under their Orekid moniker, it's as busy as ever in the studio with a long line of singles and their first album "1440" all set for release on Guess this year.
