The band has had intermittent success in the UK Singles Chart, with their breakthrough hit a cover version of the Ronnie Laws tune "Always There", featuring Jocelyn Brown, which made #6 in the UK. The group's 1992 single, "Don't You Worry 'Bout A Thing" saw similar success, reaching #19 in the UK. They have also been a favourite of various re-mixers, including Masters At Work, David Morales, Roger Sanchez and Jazzanova, and have released several albums consisting almost entirely of remixes.
In 1994, Incognito appeared on the Red Hot Organization's compilation album, Stolen Moments: Red Hot + Cool.
