Idjut Boys

Dan Tyler and Conrad McDonnell, aka Idjut Boys, are an English duo whose dub-heavy house tracks incorporate their playful sense of humor.

Tyler and McDonnell met in the late '80s in Cambridge while McDonnell was working as a lifeguard and Tyler was studying at university. In the early 90s they both moved to London and started making music, Djing, and organising their own club nights at The Cross in Kings Cross. In addition to lending their own talents, Tyler and McDonnell hosted New York DJs Hector Romero and Ted Patterson amongst many others. The Idjuts' fusion of dub, house, and techno soon caught on and by the mid-90s they were DJing all over the world.

McDonnell and Tyler established U-Star Records in 1993, releasing their debut 12" Idjut Boy. They continued releasing numerous 12"s, often in collaboration with Laj or Quakerman. Their 1995 release "Not Reggae" (with Laj) was admired by such production legends as Franc╠žois Kevorkian.

U-Star records was followed by other labels including Noid, Droid and Cottage, releasing their own music, as well as others. Many of these releases are now regarded as cult classics.

The Idjut Boys have remixed the likes of Lighthouse Family, Sound 5, Dido, Dimitri From Paris, DJ Harvey, Prins Thomas, Todd Terje and Bryan Ferry.

The duo released Noid Long Player (an album of disco edits) in 1998, followed by Life: The Shoeing You Deserve (with Quakerman) in 1999. In February of 2000 the Idjuts released the mix CD Saturday Nite Live on Nuphonic Records. A mix CD of the duo's own material (including collaborations with Laj and Quakerman) titled The U-Star Daze also appeared around that time. An Idjut Boys studio

album, Cellar Door, was released on Smalltown Supersound in 2012. Also in 2012 the Idjut Boys were asked to compile, edit and mix a triple CD to celebrate the 5 year anniversary of well-respected London record label Claremont 56.

For the past ten years, The Idjuts have toured Japan every year and have played at the best clubs in Tokyo, Osaka and many other cities. Most notably playing NYE at Space Lab Yellow when it was widely held to be one of the top clubs in the world.

Idjut Boys continue to travel the world Djing, 2015 has also seen the relaunch of U-Star Records, the release of a new album Versions on Smalltown Supersound, and several new remixes for the legendary Bryan Ferry.
