Big beat techno music icon Ed Simons of The Chemical Brothers has revealed the duo are driven by delivering memorable live shows.
And the out-of-this-world laser, lighting and animation visuals are thanks to Doctor Who film-maker Adam Smith and Marcus Lyall.
Adam, who directed eleventh Doctor Matt Smith, has worked with electronic dance music pioneers Ed and Tom Rowlands to turn their tracks into immersive visual experiences since they started out almost three decades ago.
In an exclusive chat - listen to full interview with Graham Walker here - Ed paid tribute to their long term collaborators, who have been a key part of their success, as they head out on a six date 2023 autumn UK tour to promote tenth album For That Beautiful Feeling.
