FRIENDS AND MUSICIANS SINCE CHILDHOOD, IT IS OF THEIR OWN SIDE THAT BEN WESTHILL & MAXIM ALENZA HAD BUILD UP A SOLID MUSICAL EXPERIENCE (SAXOPHONE, PIANO, SOLFEGE). IT IS AFTERWARD, THANKS TO LEGENDS LIKE JEAN-MICHEL JARRE, DAFT PUNK OR SVEN VATH THAT THEY WILL BE INTERESTED IN ELECTRONIC MUSIC, DJING AND PRODUCTION. IT IS FINALLY IN 2002 THAT THEY DECIDE TO WORK TOGETHER BEHIND THE TURNTABLES AND ALSO IN STUDIO, BECAUSE THEY ARE ACTUALLY STUDENTS IN THE SAME SOUND ENGINEER’S SCHOOL.

INSPIRED BY THE MOSTS INTERNATIONAL RECOGNIZED PRODUCERS AND REMIXERS AS GABRIEL & DRESDEN, Deadmau5, OR ELSE ABOVE & BEYOND, THEY CREATED THEIR OWN STYLE: A POWERFUL ELECTRO LINE GORGED WITH HARMONY AND VOCALS ACCORDING TO TRANCE, THE WHOLE ACCOMPANIED BY VARIOUS INFLUENCES AS PROGRESSIVE, CLASSICAL MUSIC OR ACOUSMATIC

DURING 2006, THEY REALISE THEIR FIRST LIVE SHOW AT THE CONCORDE ATLANTIQUE (BY NBG EVENTS), FOLLOWED A FEW MONTHS AFTER WITH A GUEST SESSION AT PLAZA MADELEINE. DAYS BY DAYS, THEY GAIN THE TRUST OF PARISIANS ORGANIZERS, PERMITTING THEM TO PARTICIPATE TO THE EVENTEXOTICA” (WITH ARIAS), WHICH IS BY THE WAY THE INAUGURATION OF THE NAVY CLUB (Paris). IT IS DURING 2007 THAT THEY OBTAIN THEIR RESIDENCY ON CLUBBIN-RADIO.COM WITH FAMOUS DJS LIKE JOACHIM GARRAUD OR MAA-K… THEY WILL BE ALSO INVITED ON THE FIRST EMISSION “DJ STAR”, BROADCASTED ON ENJOY-STATION.NET (THE FIRST WEB RADIO IN FRANCE); EMISSION WHICH WILL BE FOLLOWED BY LAURENT WOLF, AUTOR OF THE HIT “NO STRESS”. THEIR LIVE EXPERIENCES AND MANY RADIO SHOWS, MOST APPRECIATED BY THE PUBLIC AND AUDITORS, ALLOW THEM TO STAND OUT FROM OTHERS DJS, AND SO MAKE THEMSELVES A NETWORK OF SOLID RELATIONSHIPS WHICH BOOST THEM, DURING 2008, IN THE MOST REKNOWN FRENCH AND ABROAD CLUBS AS REDLIGHT, GIBUS, L’AQUA, L’ARTISTE, LA LOCO, LE REGINE’S, PACHA DJERBA, OR RECENTLY THE QUEEN, THE MOST RECOGNIZED AND FAMOUS CLUB IN FRANCE.
