Musical artist

Agent X was an English record production, songwriting and DJ team, originally founded as a duo in London by Music College classmates Greg Bonnick and Leon Price, adding Hayden Chapman and Peter Renshaw to the collective in 2009. Their main styles fall under the dance, urban and pop music genres.


Agent X first came to success in 2001 when their debut single "Decoy", initially made as a college project, became one of the biggest dance records of the year. To this day, "Decoy" is considered a UK garage classic and continues to feature on many compilation albums including Kiss 100 DJ EZ's successful series of Pure Garage compilations.[1] Since their formation, the team have diversified in music genre and style, which has allowed them to remain current and at the forefront of new music. DJs Greg & Leon started their career on pirate radio stations Rinse FM and Shine FM before being invited to join a new station from the BBC, BBC 1Xtra hosting shows between 2002–2005. They regularly DJ across the UK and in European countries including dance mecca Ibiza. In 2007, they collaborated with the then unknown rapper Tinie Tempah & Ultra for "Perfect Girl"; this garnered the attention of several A&R people and led to a string of production duties for Agent X. 2009 saw them collaborate once again with Ultra and former Sugababes member Mutya Buena for the club hit "Falling". In 2012, they released the Prime EP featuring hot new acts Kids of '91 and Scrufizzer shortly followed by the successful Deepside series and scored their first UK No. 1 with the international hit "Turn Up the Music" by Chris Brown.

Production and songwriting

In addition to working on their own material, Agent X have written and produced for a range of artists, including successful British, American, Australian, Italian and Korean acts. Notable releases include Chris Brown's "Turn Up The Music", Cheryl Cole's A Million Lights, Fabri Fibra's Guerra e pace, and Platnum's "Love Shy". The 2010 collaboration with grime rapper Skepta, "Rescue Me", peaked at No. 14 on the UK Singles Chart. Greg Bonnick initially sang the demo, and although he was uncredited as the singer, Bonnick's vocals were used on the single's hook. All four members of Agent X made a cameo appearance in both of Skepta's music videos.


Agent X's remixes include songs by Kanye West, Ne-Yo,[2] Mariah Carey,[3] Calvin Harris, Dizzee Rascal,[4] Janet Jackson, Beenie Man, Taio Cruz, Jason Derulo, Dappy, Wiley, Crookers and Kid Cudi.
