Caruana met Syntax in the early 2000s through Elemental. Alongside DJ Nick Maxwell for 4 of them formed The Menagerie and released Wild Kingdom in 2005. Syntax joined Caruana's group Son Of Sam live on stage during support sets for Raekwon and KRS-One in Brighton. In 2012 Syntax and Caruana put out their joint album A Slice Of Fried Gold, inspired by Edgar Wright films who had sent Tom the dialogue files for his first 3 films. Dr Syntax has since been working extensively with megastar producer Pete Cannon to release a number of EPs and albums. Tom and Syntax rejoined forces during the lockdown in 2020 and started working on tracks which formed the latest album Crumbs.
