S’Express were formed by DJ/Remixer Mark Moore and were one of the most successful exponents of the emergent Acid House scene. Assisted by Pascal Gabriel (Bomb The Bass) S’Express utilised the increasing use of samples and beats to create a sound that was both popular and fresh. Original Soundtrack is the high point of the band’s commercial and creative output.
