Hyde and Smith decided to continue, once again, as a duo. After the release and promotion of Everything, Everything Emerson decided to leave Underworld to focus on his solo projects and record label. Called Everything, Everything, the project was said to capture the live Underworld very faithfully.

The trio were also known by the names Lemon Interrupt and Steppin' Razor, when they remixed such varying acts as Shakespeare's Sister, Saint Etienne, Bjork and Simply Red.
