History

Silver's and Burt's main work has been in the trance music scene but they have also produced other varied electronic music styles. They are best known for their productions between 2000-2004.

Scheffler originates from Bickenbach, Germany while Burt lives in London but is originally from Auckland, New Zealand. Since meeting while DJ’ing at Electrowerkz, London back in April 2000 they focused on producing trance music. Silver was already producing in the late 1990s under the guise of Endymion, Mat Silver, Silver & Chrome and Stoker. Burt was running his own label full-time as well as a specialist online music store for trance, progressive house, techno and breakbeat music.

The label included the artists Martin Eyerer, DJ Hinx, Mat Silver, S.H.O.K.K, Ferry Corsten, Ralph Fridge, Apoptygma Berzerk, Kuffdam & Plant, Shane 54, Alphazone, Audiowarp, Hiroshi Okada, Progresia, Octagen, Mike Shiver, Menno de Jong, Pervading Call, Informers, Alex M.O.R.P.H., Airbase, Timeok, Danjo & Styles, Global Interference, Passiva, Sonicvibe and Abert Vorne.

All their production work was done in Silver's basement studio "B.Beach" – a loose translation or a play on words from the name of their home village Bickenbach.

Their remix of Shane 54 - Equinoxe 4 peaked at number 12 in the Spanish Charts when it was released in 2003.

All of their original work appeared on Above the Sky Records. A label originally set up by Burt but then later A&R’ed collectively between Burt and Silver.

The harder trance sound spread throughout early 2001, including German/Swiss artists such as Flutlicht, S.H.O.K.K., Scot Project and DuMonde. S.H.O.K.K. later remixed Mat Silver vs. Tony Burt – Teardrops.

Silver and Burt ended working in trance production after the release of their final single ‘Waimea’.
