Playte, Capskod, Pitch In, Pho and MC Youthstar started travelling the world in 2006 with their incomparable live act, combining the efficiency of a DJ set to the spirit and energy of a rock concert. In 2008, the band takes a new scope when 'French Fuck' gets signed to Shimon's label (AudioPorn). Immediately after its release, the 12" climbs the charts to reach the first place and stays number one for a couple of weeks.

Quickly after, comes out a series of 12"s, appearing systematically in the top 10 charts. 'Quarks' and its audacious rhythm pattern caused a revolution in drum and bass and has inspired lots of producers. On the same EP ('The Quarks EP') the band shows their versatility (and their ease to work with singers) in 'The Secret', with MC Tali. Soon after, 'Vandals' and its electro switch lights every dancefloor around the world on fire...
