Meeting whilst still at school in Cambridgeshire producers Brad Baloo and Dom Search have gone from spinning hip hop for free at their local discos to playing prestigious venues such as the Brixton Academy, The Scala, the Blue Note and Rubber Soul alongside the likes of Eminem, High & Mighty and The Scratch Perverts. The release of their debut album Amongst The Madness caused a storm in the UK and gained them a huge amount of respect both within the hip-hop community and the British music scene as a whole. This led to them being asked to record the music for the hit Channel 4 series The Hip Hop Years.
Hip-hop may be at the heart of the Nextmen but they refuse to limit themselves to one genre. Search has contributed to material on the Groove Armada album, Alex Gopher and released a solo EP 'Fracture', also on Scenario. Baloo is involved with Advertising the Invisible who had material out on Marble Bar Records. As a production team their work includes remixes for Masta Ace, London Posse, Pharcyde, Aim, Souls Of Mischief, and new Telstar signing Nicole. The duo are also currently working on new material for recent Talkin Loud signing Skinnyman.
