What’s your dream?
To do what we are doing now, there’s nothing like making somebody have a good night out, and to watch the faces of those listening to the tune we just finished the day before. We are content with what we do but are always trying to do it better, we believe that the day you think your perfect is the day to stop doing what your doing. We still have a long way to go!

How do you escape?
Easy just walk outside the door of the studio and bang there it is the good old wild! Our studio is situated in a valley far away from anything and we are very privileged to be able to just walk out into the mountains! After working for years in the doom and gloom of London we feel its essential to really take time out and look at our surroundings!
