Radium88 are Jema Davies (vocals, percussion, guitar) and Tim Thwaites (instruments and production). They met in Nottingham UK, some time in the 90's, bonding over a shared initial desire to make music that sounds the way William Gibson reads: dense, quite dark, futuristic, richly textured, strange, yet with moments of humanity, hope and beauty.

In 2004 or thereabouts they stopped playing live, gradually shedding punk and hip-hop influences, absorbing instead ambient electronic and classical influences and devoting their energies to recording a series of increasingly ambitious albums on their own Lotek Recordings label. These albums feature a wide range of live instrumentation in an electronic setting. They were well received critically, and a number of tracks were used to soundtrack TV programmes.

In 2016, following a contribution to a well-received compilation on the Disco Gecko label, "Strange-Eyed Constellations", they were offered the opportunity to release more material on the label, beginning with an EP, "The Man Who Failed the Turing Test". This has been accompanied by a return to live performance and this October's album "Perpetual Emotion Machine"
