Portishead‘s former DJ Andy Smith first met group frontman Geoff Barrow while the two were at school; he eventually joined Barrow’s touring band as support DJ. He also appeared with the Fugees, Republica, and Prophets of the City, and released his debut mix album, The Document, in early 1998. A follow-up was five years in coming, but The Document II proved just as varied and exciting as the first. – John Bush, All Music Guide
