Concord Dawn were also nominated for "Best Electronic Act" at the 2004 New Zealand music awards. Work on their long awaited 4th album was completed in early 2005 and was titled Chaos By Design by the two to express the album’s musically eclectic nature. The album and singles won critical acclaim worldwide with various tracks off the albums being signed to some big and respected drum and dass labels such as Metalheadz, Ram Records and Hospital Recordings. Concord Dawn were nominated for "Best Tech DJ" , "Best International Act" and "Best Producer" at the 2009 UK Drum and Bass Awards. Chaos by Design achieved Gold sales status in New Zealand.
