British quartet FooR was formed in 2015 in Southampton, on England’s south coast by DJs and producers Gavin Foord, Paul Aki, MC Jukie and Tyrone, who had known each other since childhood. Growing up they were inspired by 2-step and UK Garage. Particularly local acts like The Artful Dodger and while still in their teens had started making music initially as two separate duos. Ape Like and Maximus Baxter. Both groups released singles but achieved limited succes until they hit upon the idea of combining their talents.
