The guys quickly became firm favourite's of global superstar Judge Jules after their tracks had sat firmly in his dj sets and on his weekly BBC Radio One show week in week out so it wasn't long until they were invited to join jules on the UK's biggest radio station BBC Radio One for not 1 but three interviews, being granted the honour of playing the prestigious Sets Education guest mix and Jules himself tipping Mac and Taylor for big things the demand and appetite for what can only be described as the Mac and Taylor sound escalated to a new level which seen them play some of the biggest and most prestigious events up and down the country and around the world! some highlights included them being invited to play along side Deadmau5 on his Mau5Story world mainstage to six thousand people in the Czech Republic and then shortly after that they were one of very few to be invited to play consecutively both of Irelands biggest music festivals Planet Love!
