Usual Suspects was a group of three people (Lawrence "Keaton" H., Carl H. and Chris L.) which produced drum and bass music. The Usual Suspects formed in 1998 and started releasing material during the same year on the label Renegade Hardware. Carl and Keaton met while studying Sound Engineering in Kingston, London, while Chris was already a skilled DJ and a face on the local scene.

Their most successful track was ''Killa Bees'', which sold over 14,000 copies. This success led to them DJ’ing all over the world, and releasing tunes on Metalheadz, 31 Records, and Timeless amongst others. Other important tracks made by them were ''Spawn'', ''Hole Punch'', ''Shrapnel'', ''Sawn Off'' (with Fierce), and ''Ja Bless''.

The Usual Suspects have mostly dissolved, but contined to produce music together up to at least 2003. Keaton moved towards a more solo-oriented career, and Carl teamed up with Klaus "Heavyweight" H. to form 2 Sinners, and later released breakbeat music on his own as "One Sinner". Chris has continued to DJ under the nickname Usual Suspects.

Chris and Carl have done a number of tracks and remixes in recent times.
