Zane Lowe (formerly of Urban Disturbance) and Hamish Clark formed Breaks Co-op in 1997, releasing a debut album Roofers which fused hip-hop and downbeat electronica. They recruited vocalist Andy Lovegrove in 2004 and re-emerged with The Sound Inside which introduced acoustic guitars to their mix and included the summertime anthem 'The Otherside' (Single of the Year at the 2005 NZ Music Awards). Lowe's subsequent emergence as one of the stars of British radio has limited his involvement with the band and he was unavailable for their 2014 reunion.
