These Atlanta Natives officially formed as a group early 2013 after their previous work history together at Musicon Entertainment. Fanatik and Xpiriyense met in 2012 at Musicon Entertainment, a record label owned by Fanatik. Xpiriyense was hired on as a producer for the company where he produced mostly urban hip hop beats. After spending countless hours in the studio together and feeling accomplished in the production of rap beats they decided to switch directions. The two realized they both had a passion for Electronic Dance Music so they pursued a career as performance DJs. There unique style and productions take influence from Progressive house, Electro, Dubstep, and Trap. During the start of the summer 2013 the duo worked endlessly for a month producing and creating a plan to make an impact on the Atlanta EDM Music scene. When the two felt they had a solid product to present to the masses, a massive social media campaign was pursued. It didn’t take long before they had a steadily growing fan base, which quickly surpassed their expectations. Gaining over 400 plays a day on SoundCloud and obtaining radio play on Power 92 FM Canada & Vibe 103 FM Bermuda the two realized they had something special. Influences: AfroJack, Steve Aoki, Skrillex, David Guetta, Sweedish House Mafia, Calvin Harris and Porter Robinson.
