From the personal settings of a club to the vast and immense setting of a festival, they bring their unique style with an undying passion.
Besides their ever popular debut album “Time 2 Shine” which scored massive hits in Hard Dance charts Worldwide, another major step in their career was moving away from their Norwegian roots and planting them firmly in Belgium, where they now reside.
