KEYMONO originally formed in 2003 when producer Alvydas
Maciulskas and trumpet player Aurimas Rimeikis first met.
During that year vocalist Daiva Starinskaite joined the band.
Various musicians came and went in the years that followed
but in 2009, when drummer Marijus Aleksa joined forces, the
lineup was finally complete.
“KEYMONO are one of the breakthrough bands from this
year’s awards. Winners of the best dance/electronica act, their
performance and energy at this years awards ceremony was
absolutely amazing and the highlight of the awards for me.
Their music fuses pumping electronic bass and beats with fat
synthesizers and singer Daiva’s powerful vocals, creating a
unique and adventurous yet mature sound that is sure to delight
anyone with an ear for good dance music”
