Bio

2 piece DJ acts these days are few and far between as people want to hold the glory to themselves, however when you see 2 piece acts they are out of this world! Just look at bands like 2manydjs, Justice, Cassius and the incredible Daft Punk, all absolute titans in their fields. What we bring is something different to the DJ table, not just 2 guys behind a desk but an intense energy and crowd interaction. We both grew up with heavy metal bands, and watching their performances we wished we could someday become them. However as time has passed and our musical tastes matured, we now share a real passion for electronic music and have finally found a project we put all our energy into. However, we still keep in mind the difference between seeing a rock and roll band live and a pair of DJ's. We wanted to bring the energy and interaction that a rock band has to the DJ world as it is incredibly rare to see now (maybe with the exception of Steve Aoki & The Bloody Beetroots!). We not only want to play exciting music but put on an exciting visual performance that puts us head and shoulders above the competition. This does not go to say though, that this is our only advantage. I have been DJing since the age of 16, what with having to chat my way into nightclubs just so i could get a show and i love doing what i do. Sebastian also, a huge music enthusiast and studying the subject at university. You give the kid anything, and in minutes he can play it! He was a natural to the DJ world and together we believe, given a shot, we will never let you down. Even with being miles apart for the majority of the year we have still recently played and secured shows with Mat Horne, Rev (The Prodigy), Vaski, Flux Pavilion & performed across the country in Bristol, London, Bournemouth & Derby. We are fighting our way onto club night lineups and proving ourselves one show at a time. If you were to give us a chance at your festival, we would not let you down but give you an incredibly exciting show for one and all. We could only imagine how incredible it must be to play, so i thought i would find out our chances of it. I will take any opportunity such as this, and hope that we get our opportunity to prove ourselves as there are plenty of DJs nowadays who are, to be honest, boring. Boring, is not a word The Acolytes are familiar with.
