This leading electronica ensemble first formed in 1995, consisting of three key members; vocalist Maxi Jazz, multi-talented composer and instrumentalist Sister Bliss and producer Rollo. Since their inception this remarkable group have sold over 15 million records across the world, and firmly established themselves as prominent figures who have helped to spearhead a new side to the dance music scene.
Faithless’ first album was released in 1996, titled ‘Reverence’ it helped launch their career to new heights, responsible for classic hits such as ‘Insomnia’ and ‘Don’t Leave’. The record peaked at no. 26 in the UK charts and garnered a wealth of critical praise. With AllMusic commending the emotive blend of infectious dance beats and soulful lyrics that ‘make this album a manifesto, religious experience, sexual escapade, and 24-hour rave all rolled up into one tightly constructed package.’ The rich array of acid house tracks and clever remixes marked the start of a successful career that made them respected artists in the dance and electronica music industry.
Following up their achievements with their second album ‘Sunday 8pm’, Faithless climbed even higher in the charts, with the album reaching no. 10. Their popular single ‘God Is a DJ’ soared to no. 6 in the UK, and even broke into the US with a no. 1 spot on the Billboard Hot Dance Club Play at the end of 1998. The next year Faithless were nominated for a BRIT Award for Best British Act for the work they did on the hit album, only narrowly missing out on a Grammy nomination which many fans and critics claim they should have deserved for the talent exuded in ‘God is a DJ’.
With a devout backing of fans and brilliant critical reception surrounding them, Faithless went on to record their next studio album ‘Outrospective’ which was released in 2001. The record gave birth to another succession of hits such as ‘One Step to Far’ featuring velvety vocalist Dido who is also the sister of producer Rollo, and the classic ‘We Come 1’ which grabbed a no. 3 spot on the UK charts. Outrospective also had a top ten position in the charts; ranking at no. 4 it is Faithless’ biggest selling album in the UK.
Their steady battle to reach the top was rewarded when their fourth album ‘No Roots’ debuted at no.1 on the UK Albums Chart. The pioneering trio received another wave of critical admiration with Release Magazine saying, ‘The album simply flows; piano-led tracks into beats, spoken word into instrumental, crunching sounds into quiet’. Faithless yet again won over their listeners with this perfectly balanced album that mixes heartfelt social commentary with tension-building riffs and satisfying beat drops. ‘To All New Arrivals’ was the name of their fifth album, titled to reflect the recent birth of two of the ensemble’s babies.
