They began working together in the mid-eighties on the (then) pirate radio station KissFM. Shortly thereafter they released their first single, "Say Kids, What Time Is It?", which marked the first stirrings of the UK's dance/cutup scene.
Coldcut's second album, Some Like It Cold, released in 1990 on Ahead Of Our Time, featured a collaboration with Queen Latifah on the single "Find a Way". Though "Find a Way" was a minor hit in the UK, no more singles were released from the album. The duo was given the BPI "Producer of the Year Award" in 1990. Hex - alongside some other London visual experimenters such as iE - produced a series of videos for a longform VHS version of the album.

Mr Nichols combines a beautifully subtle piece of music with a superb, deadpan piece of writing from Saul Williams. Former Ninja Andrew Broder aka Fog offers wonky, melancholy lyrics over a faltering kitchen sink orchestra backing on Whistle And A Prayer.
Coldcut's second album, Some Like It Cold released in 1990, featured another collaboration with Queen Latifah on the single "Find a Way". This album failed to chart and, though "Find a Way" was a minor hit in the UK, no more singles were released. The duo were given the BPI's "Producer of the Year Award" in 1990. After their success with Lisa Stansfield, her label Arista offered Coldcut a deal. They signed to the major label but their unwillingness to be moulded and promoted as a major act caused conflict. Videos were made for most songs, often by Hexstatic, and used a lot of stock footage. Songs often used the audio from the videos as samples incorporated into the music, such as with the songs "Timber" (released as a single in 1998) and "Pan Opticon". Also in 1997, Black created real-time video manipulation software, VJamm.
