The Dream Warriors were formed in 1988 in Toronto by King Lou (Louie Robinson) and Capital Q (Frank Allert). Their music fused jazz, hip hop and Caribbean influences to create a unique sound. Their first album And Now The Legacy Begins in 1991 was critically acclaimed across North America and in the UK. "Wash Your Face In My Sink", "My Definition Of A Boombastic Jazz Style" and "Ludi" were all top 40 hits in the UK.

In 1993 the duo was joined by Spek and DJ Luv and in 1994 released their second albumSubliminal Stimulation, followed in 1996 by The Master Plan. The group remains an influential force in the history of emerging Canadian hip hop culture.
