Have met in the backyard, while playing childhood games. They were not neighbors or friends, but their connection was even stronger, they are those inseparable cousins. As they were enjoying every part of it, they’ve put all the fun and good feelings in the music they produced. A lasting and strong relationship was created through music and the two of them realized they’re better together than alone. And that’s how they decided it they would be until the end of.. decks and players. Today, labels like Toolroom Records, Great Stuff, Glasgow Underground, Safe Music, Kittball and many more are knoking on their door. Their music is constantly found in the sets of artists like Mark Knight, Solomun, Bedouin, Blond:ish, Martin Solveig, Danny Howard, Roger Sanchez and many more. The playful cousins are now conquering the world, from deck to deck, stopping at the studio in between.
