Thunderpuss

Thunderpuss is the (mainly dance) remix/production team of music producers Barry Harris and Carl Cox. Harris, an openly gay musician and DJ, had worked previously as part of several music groups, including Kon Kan, Top Kat, Killer Bunnies and Outta Control, and had also released several singles himself. Cox, an openly straight musician and DJ, had also worked for years as a DJ and producer, producing a megamix of Paula Abdul songs, among other things, and started his own record label, Interhit Records, with Jeff Johnson.

Harris & Cox originally met in the late '80s and remained friends for years, with Harris eventually joining Cox at Interhit. They didn't start working together as a production team until late 1997, though. Their first project as Thunderpuss was a cover of the song "I Just Wanna Be Your Everything", with Thea Austin, formerly of Snap! performing vocals. They also produced Engelbert Humperdinck's 1998 album The Dance Album, but did not use the name Thunderpuss.

Over the course of almost six years, Thunderpuss had a very successful career as remixers and producers. Their biggest remix success was a hit remix of "It's Not Right But It's Okay" by Whitney Houston. They also produced hit remixes of songs by Mary J. Blige ("No More Drama" & "Rainy Dayz", with Ja Rule), CÚline Dion ("I Want You To Need Me"), Stacie Orrico ("Stuck"), and Kim English ("Higher Things"), among others. They also produced original songs for various artists, including Abigail ("Let The Joy Rise And If It Don't Fit"), Amber ("Taste The Tears"), and Soluna.

Thunderpuss also put out several singles themselves as artists, including "Papa's Got A Brand New Pigbag", a fully electronic dance cover of the "Pigbag" song, "Stand Up" (with Latanza Waters), and "FMH" (under the artist name Harris & Cox). They split up in late 2003 and both men are pursuing DJ/remix/production work on their own. Harris mashed up songs by Billy Squier and Fischerspooner to create the song "Everybody Wants You To Emerge" for the Queer Eye For The Straight Guy soundtrack, and Cox recently remixed the Michelle Branch single "Breathe".

Cox also found solo success for himself with his own 2000 single, "Phuture 2000".
