    London Elektricity is a musical collective and (subsequently) band. They are best-known as a forerunning live drum and bass act, although they also incorporate large elements of jazz, funk and breakbeat.

    The first incarnation of London Elektricity was the duo Tony Colman and Chris Goss, also founders of the Hospital Records label. In 1999 they released their debut album Pull the Plug on Hospital. Although session musicians contributed a wide-range of live instruments (double bass, electric guitar, brass section, flute, strings), and jazz singer Lianne Carrol provided vocals on two tracks, the LP was essentially a studio work, under the control of producer/DJ duo Colman and Goss.

    In 2002 Chris Goss departed to concentrate on managing Hospital Records, leaving it a solo project of Tony Colman. The second album Billion Dollar Gravy arrived in 2003, and during the making of the album the players had begun to coalesce into a band, and Colman decided to take the band live. The line-up includes Colman, Landslide, MC Wrec, the Jungle Drummer, Lianne Carrol and Robert Owens, amongst others. In 2004 they released a live DVD.

    2005 saw the release of their third album Power Ballads using the same line-up as the live band.

    London Elektricity announced at Pressure (Warwick University's Drum & Bass event) on 2nd December 2005 that they had no future plans to play live again. They were joined on stage for the announcement by former member Chris Goss. To date they have kept this pledge and Tony Colman now DJs Drum and Bass under the name of London Elektricity.

    Lianne Carrol was awarded Best of Jazz Award at the BBC Jazz Awards 2005 and is now pursuing a successful solo Jazz singing career.
