Jason Greenhalgh (Q-Project) and Paul Smith (Spinback) first met in 1987 brought together through a mutual love of hip-hop music. Over the coming years, the pair developed a deep appreciation for Techno and Dance music at the start of its worldwide takeover.

By 1991, Spinback was an established DJ, gracing the decks at events week in week out, including the world famous “Universe”. Q-Project entered the studio too, with his first release "Freestyle Fanatic".

Their first label, Legend Records was launched with Q-Project’s highly acclaimed "Champion Sound" in 1992. It took their profile to new heights, and it remains one of the most influential tunes of its time and generation this was swiftly followed by the start of their early recording career together under the name Funky Technicians... and so the unstoppable collaboration had begun.

In 1997, the well-established pair launched the Computer Integrated Audio (C.I.A) label and the alias Total Science, was born. Over the coming years, Total Science had releases on all the major D&B labels including Metalheadz, Good Looking, Moving Shadow, Hospital, Tru Playaz, 31 Records (Doc Scott), Reinforced, Soul:r, Shogun Audio to name but a few, as well as releases under their own C.I.A. and various other imprints.

Total Science/Q-Project have release 4 albums, however, the actual number of singles and EP’s the pair have released is currently an unknown quantity. Their relentless yearning to create music and dogged approach denotes there are just too many to mention!

As DJ’s Total Science have been touring globally for over a decade, regularly requested and in demand from the USA, Australia, New Zealand & Japan to the present day. They have a strong presence and dedicated following across the whole of Europe and in the UK, playing in all major regions and cities and regularly listed at top London venues.

In recent times Total Science have collaborated with a few select artists, most recognised is their work with Brazilian wonder kid S.P.Y. The pair became a threesome sharing ideas and studio space, and magic was made, the defining moments of this ultimate link-up being “Gangsta”, “Testimony (feat Riya ) ”, “Legion”, “Venus Prime”, and “Ghostrider”, & more recently on S.P.Y's second album "Back to Basics" which they were present on 4 tracks.

Their ongoing collaboration with vocalist Riya (Laura Pacheco) over the years has resulted in many appearances and Top Ten status with tracks "Redlines" "Piano Funk" & "See Your Face" the title track from their 2013 EP on Shogun Audio.

Other notable projects include the impressive, "Another Time" (featuring Grimm) on Spearhead Various output on Shogun Audio including "Positive Vibrations", the massive "Scatter" from the Friction Verses series, two tracks on Riya's album for Spearhead (one of which Mixmag also premiered) and a Top 10 collaboration with Quadrant & Iris on C.I.A.

In 2016, the duo have already released ‘Found A Reason Why’ a collaboration with FD which appeared on their own CIA Records imprint. They will be returning to their second home, Goldie’s Metalheadz this year with the 'Notes of Blue EP' and on Dispatch (for a track with Nymfo) It’s also CIA’s 20th birthday this year so they have worked on a Various Artist album which will feature long time players Calibre, Break, S.P.Y., Digital & Spirit to name a few.

Collaborations are also in the works with Mako, DLR, Digital & Spirit, Kaiju, Onemind to name a few, so expect a lot more from the duo over the coming months.
