It’s rather rare when two individuals who’ve know and worked together for 15 years can preserve a strong synergy and friendship. They share a strong affinity for their art and a common objective, which is more important than any hype or individual pursuit, making Leo and Omar a very special duo!
Their music is the match point of two styles. Each molded by house music of the late 90’s and following movements of progressive, tribal and techno.. Like well crafted recipes their diverse influences enhance the elements of their work, generating an irresistible tension and sexy vibe in every track.
In 2006 the duo relocated to Barcelona they found them selves in the company of other great artists like Marco Resmann, Marc Antona and Sonodab, who they continue to work with. The spanish journey inspired their first productions as OEL&Polygon but the revolution happened at the end of 2008, when the duo returned under the new alias Re-UP.
Following their reformation the boys know as Re-UP became the figure heads of Kina Music. A leading Italian label getting a massive support from DJs and their audience, but holding on to an underground profile. The duo have been shaping the label with poignancy and personality, cultivating pioneering music with warm rolling grooves and a mindful approach to the dancefloor. Selections like “Focus On Bucharest” has been one of the most recognizable EPs of the imprint to date.
Since 2009 Their residency at TAG After-party, became a revered “appointment” with Re-UP in north Italy!
At the same time this helped them to express their natural instinct for alternative and wicked atmospheres developing a special taste in musical research. Whether they decide to play DJ or perform live, there’s no boundaries. It’s all about a good balance of smart, organic and hypnotic rhythms played in a fluid way.
With a rich discography full of floor filler releases on labels such as UponYou, Dissonant, Safari. Plus a successful series of remixes for artists like Tini, Tiefschwarz, Miguel Lobo & Larry Peters among others. Works by Re-UP are played and supported by the biggest names in international clubbing. Currently working on Their own album, 2013 looks set to be their year.
