We are a 2 person group. Nick plays drumset and MCs, Roman mixes tunes and plays synth/percussion
We we’re trying to think of what we should be bringing to the dancefloor and ultimately decided we wanted to build something that makes people stop and take pause. sometimes we need to stop getting our heads and just be in the moment.
