Vlad began his music experimentation in his early teens. Equipped with only the bare essentials, a midi sequencer and a keyboard and the support of passionate musicians around him, ideas and soundscapes started to take shape and form. After several years of working with electronic music and setting up the basis of an electronic group in his hometown, his first solo release was launched by Next Dimension Music, in early 2007, followed over a short period by other materials and remixes on different labels such as his ‘Al Doilea’ EP on Next Dimension Music and ‘Gradual’ EP on Dirty Box.
Musician and composer Jimi Tenor has never settled for the traditional role of a pop artist. He is known as a productive musician whose work lies beyond current trends, and also as a performer who combines the finest elements of afro-american music, spontaneous silliness and shameless glamour in an original way. Besides being a professional musician for almost 20 years, Jimi Tenor (born Lassi Lehto, 1965, Lahti, Finland) has also practised photography, directed short films and designed clothes and musical instruments.
Born "Sonia Clarke" in London, England in 1968, of Trinidadian parentage. She was sort of written-off at school but had shown talents in sports. She dreamed of becoming a successful pentathlete up to the time ending up only second in a race. Then she turned to the music scene, dancing at clubs etc. and joined a reggae band as a singer at the age of 17. She was homeless in these times. Her band went defunct the same year, but she got a solo record deal leading to an immediate club hit in the UK.
Kissy Sell Out emerged from the myspace generation of cool nerds and sonic visionaries engaged in a feverish revolt, a wholesale shredding of the musical and business rulebook, as they mix their influences into exhilarating results spreading the word online and beyond - a collision of art, ideas and energy unrivalled since the heyday of punk, taking in everything from Klaxons acid indie-disco through Justice's ultra-modern electro to the mangled sonic aggro of UK grime and straight ahead rock n roll.
There are at least two artists called Maxim: 1) Keith Palmer (born 21 March 1967), best known as Maxim or Maxim Reality, is an MC of the British electronica/rave band The Prodigy. He is known for his fierce style of appearance in both music videos and live shows, often wearing scary contact lenses and kilts. His fierce style is also vibrant in the lyrical sense; in live shows he is known to scream and shout to hype up the audience.

Daniel Portman was born and raised in the suburbs of Zurich, Switzerland. He fell in love with electronic music at a very young age. It was the late 90s, with all its ups and downs, when young Daniel started to test his musical abilities on an Akai2000 sampler and an old sequencer.
After a long ride of experimenting, he ended up with a bunch of tracks. Daniel went back to his small bedroom studio, made another bunch of tracks and along the way he stumbled into the porn industry.
We're two guys from very different backgrounds making music together. Andrew Friendly comes from the clubs, DJing, remixing, promoting, and has remixed people like Justice vs Simian, INXS, LFO, SL2, Darren Hayes, and We Have Band, travelled the world DJing, and releasing big club tracks. Ra, meanwhile, has been locked away, being a bit introverted, honing his skills, observations, lyrics and voice. We met through music, and clicked in an “two worlds colliding” kind of way, and now we feel like brothers on a mission. It's a balancing act.
