Meanwhile, Sister Bliss commented: “We wouldn’t be Faithless without Soul II Soul […] Camden is the place I lived, the first ever record deal, the first ever clubbing spot. The team really managed to capture Camden’s sense of energy and possibility.” Speaking about Faithless bandmate Maxi Jazz, she added: “We lost Maxi in 2022 and I wish he was here to see the documentary.”
