The Sabres of Paradise
The Sabres of Paradise were a British experimental group formed in London, England in 1992. Although their roots were in the acid house scene, they later produced more dub-inspired work. Andrew Weatherall formed the group with engineers Jagz Kooner and Gary Burns and became responsible for the Sabresonic warehouse raves. Keith Tenniswood joined the group after meeting Jagz at Phil Perry's Full Circle club.

In addition to releasing their own material, The Sabres of Paradise did production work and remixes for numerous artists, with remixes including "Open Up" for Leftfield featuring John Lydon and "Regret" for New Order.
In 2011, the then head of BBC Radio 1, Christopher Price, highlighted the In the Nursery remix of "Haunted Dancehall" as the style of music that would be played on pop radio to prepare audiences before cutting to an announcement of tragic news such as the death of the Queen.
