"One and One" was the third single of Italian electronic dance musician Robert Miles, released on 4 November 1996 from his debut album Dreamland and his second hit, it features English singer Maria Nayler on vocals. "One and One" was Robert Miles second number one on the US dance charts, and it also went to number one in Israel, Italy and Scotland.

Background[edit]

Miles is known by some collectors of CD singles for the quotes he includes on his jewel case inserts, succinct expressions of what he was attempting to communicate in writing and producing the song. Of One and One Miles wrote:

...Sometimes, you don't even have the time to realize
what is happening to your life,
that it has already happened...
the world moves too fast...
let's recapture the essence of time."

Critical reception[edit]

Billboard wrote about the song: "The follow-up to the left-field hit "Children" pairs the Italian producer/musician with singer Maria Nayler, who brings an appropriately ethereal quality to the cut's warm and pillowy instrumentation. She coos and whispers atop a stream of piano lines that are similar to the infectious tinkling on "Children," while a quietly insinuating dance beat pushes along at a disco-like pace."[5]

The Gavin Report wrote: "Well, no one can argue that the words are better this time around. In all seriousness, Miles disproved the long-held belief that Top 40 programmers will not play instrumentals. They do play hits, and after overcoming some initial resistance, "Children" proved itself to be a smash here just as it had been around the world. This followup, which does feature a vocal, has a Euro feel, which B96-Chicago MD Erik Bradley describes as hypnotic. After two weeks of spins, he reports "a ton of calls from women. I think this will be one of the big records for fall."[6]

Music video[edit]

The music video for "One & One" was directed by Michael Geoghegan.[7]
