2001 – Rogue Traders sign to vicious.

Following a solo production released by Vicious under the name of Thunderchild, Melbourne DJ and producer James Ash teamed up with friend Steve Davis to deliver a bunch of new demos to the label under his new project Rogue Traders. John and Andy loved what they heard and signed the group in 2002, starting a career for the band that included multiple hits in Australia and the UK.
