The Qemists formed in the late nineties when the drummer, bassist and guitarist of the rock band developed a strong interest in drum and bass, resulting in a fusion of the two sounds.

Their first single release, Stompbox, appeared on the movie soundtrack for Jumper and in numerous video games.

Since then, they have supported rock band Enter Shikari on their World Tour in 2009, as well as hosting their own UK tour.
