Plaid is a British electronic music duo comprising Andy Turner and Ed Handley, and based out of London. They are former members of The Black Dog and used many other names, such as Atypic (Andrew Turner) and Balil (Ed Handley), before settling on Plaid. They have collaborated with female singers Mara Carlyle, Nicolette and Björk,and have released records on the labels Clear, Peacefrog, Black Dog Productions, and Warp Records. In 2006, the duo composed the original music and soundtrack to the Japanese anime film "Tekkon Kinkreet".

Aside from their own material, Plaid have done extensive remix work for many other artists, including Red Snapper, Björk, Goldfrapp, and The Irresistible Force. "Parts in the Post" (2003) contains just a handful of Plaid's remix work to date.

Plaid often works collaboratively with video artist Bob Jaroc, whose animations often accompanied the music during live performances. They have developed a DVD consisting of new material and video artwork to accompany the music, entitled "Greedy Baby". The project was completed on July 20 2005, and was first shown at the Queen Elizabeth Hall in the South Bank Centre, and subsequently at the BFI Imax cinema in Waterloo, London. "Greedy Baby" was released on DVD from Warp Records on June 26, 2006.
