London duo Ed Handley and Andy Turner started recording as Plaid while still members of Black Dog Productions. The first Plaid album, Mbuki Mvuki, was released in 1991. In 1995, Ed and Andy ended their five year collaboration with Ken Downie and left The Black Dog. Plaid released the Android EP that same year, and the pair began rechanneling their efforts full-time. Plaid goes on to perpetually produce a steady stream of inventive, warm, vivacious electronic music.
