What is your musical/DJ background?

Both played the drums in their childhood

Listening to electronic music from a young age and paying more attention than others to the DJ’s skills at festivals/clubs has led to an interest in and understanding of how a song is build and how to perform a DJ-set

When did you get into music and how?

Started by buying the first DJ-controller (Pioneer DJ DDJ-SB) back in 2014 for generating some self-made mash-ups and one hour mixes with Serato. Then playing music in front of friends at parties and working on skills.

First gigs in 2017 and creating self-made music together with an experienced music producer.

In 2019 we built our own music studio for producing new music and preparing our sets. We upgraded our DJ-controller to a Pioneer DJ CDJ-RX2
