I was in a reflective space that night and spent my time chilling as a sizable crowd of party goers surged with energy, exploding into a dancing frenzy set to the duo's electronic manipulations-a mix of top shelf Berlin approved techno and the lithe grooves of a cat like say Francois K. The tiny room was filled with palpable electricity as the crowd swirled around the performers and their gear completely surrounding them in a 360 degree circle devouring their every movement." - Sean Michael Yoder, Bigshot Magazine
