Full Intention : biography

Full Intention are UK Producers and Remixers Michael Gray and Jon Pearn
U.K. DJ/remixers/producers Jon Pearn and Michael Gray started working together in the early '90s even when their breakthrough came after issuing 1996's "America (I Love America)." Soon, the British duo became one of the most in-demand remixers in the dance-music field, climbing club/dance charts around the world with "To Be in Love" by Masters at Work, "What You Need" by Powerhouse, the Top 20 hit "So in Love With You" by Duke, and the chart-topping and top-selling U.S. CD/12" "Love Don't Cost a Thing" by Jennifer Lopez.
They have been quietly compiling an excellent discography of productions and fine remixes, and have established themselves as favourites with DJs such as David Morales, Erick Morillo, Roger Sanchez, Masters At Work and Danny Rampling.
In 1999, Full Intention launched their own label, DTension, distributed by the New York-based Strictly Rhythm, making its debut with the release of "Spanish Hustle".
In their career , they have remixed Frankie Knuckles, Satoshie Tomie, Masters at Work, Another Level, Powerhouse, Da Mob, Jocelyn Brown and J-Lo.
On the writing front, they have collaborated Blaze, Duane Harden, Barbara Tucker, Dajae, Sybil, and the voice of Soulsearcher - Thea Austin.
Full Intention have also recorded as Sex-o-Sonique, Ronaldo`s Revenge and Hustlers Convention whilst remixing classics such as The Salsoul Orchestra 'Ooh I Love It', Eddie Amador 'House Music', Teena Marie 'I Need Your Lovin' , First Choice 'Armed and Extremely Dangerous' and Duke 'So In Love'.

Full Intention
On remixes:

Michael Gray: "We usually start with Jon putting the vocals and any music parts we wish to keep into the Mac".
Jon Pearn: "Then Michael works out ideas that have been whirring around in his head the night before and starts looking through his old record collection. If the vocals are too slow or fast then we will time-stretch them in the Mac to around 126 bpm".

"We know our limitations, so we get David Snell to do the mixdown of vocals and live strings as neither of us is so hot on compression".
