'Weatherman' is Laurant Webb. Laurant was born in Portsmouth, but spent his early years in Zambia, returning to England for most of his schooling. He started working as a studio engineer at the age of 18, and soon joined up with Justin Bailey and Dave Coker to form 'Wubble-U', who had early chart hits with 'Petal' and 'A Bit Like You'. Laurant left 'Wubble-U' in 1997, as he began to follow new directions, exploring different sounds. He joined tech house band, 'Flunky', known for records such as 'Love Song' and 'Dance Floor Collective'.
