BIOGRAPHY
Grapefruit Moon came to an existence back in 1997, after Bretik recorded his first electro-pop EP "Today", completely in his own production.There is also a remix of the title song on the EP done by Lucas who became the second member of GM. Sojda was the next person to join Bretik and Lucas.With his arrival GM´s music became less poppy, the vocals got pushed in the background and gradually dissapeared completely, substituted with Sojda´s guitar solos. The whole sound turned more alternative. Johny came shortly after Sojda, and in this set-up they recorded second GM EP "Pampelmusenmond" , which won the demo of the month in magazine Spark. With Sojda playing the guitar, Johny on the drum machine, Lucas programming and Bretik programming and keyboard playing, they toured several Ostrava´s clubs with the Pampelmusenmond repertoir.
In May 1999 an Ostrava´s culture system dvoika.troika started their activity. GM were among the first liveacts who joined them, and have remained a fixed part of it until now. After some time spent looking for a female singer, GM renewed their old contact, and in autumn 1999 started to work on some songs with Sonia. The idea was to bring a warm human element to the songs. The collaboration went down well, and Sonia became a proper member of GM. In a three months´ time they recorded a promo "East Base" EP for a project called "French Connection" organized by Prague´s East Base Agency, whose aim was to connect dance music from Eastern Europe with French dance music.
At the present time GM work on their first regular which is to come out through Virtual Label (similarly to other liveacts from dvoika.troika) around the end of 2000. Sojda´s not among GM anymore (RESTINPEACE...), Lucas has moved to Prague, but still keeping in touch with GM became a main re-mixer of GM songs. Nowadays GM feature Sonia (vocals), Bretik (programming, keyboards), Johny (drum machine, sampling, loops), FunkOta (guitar player), Lacmo (web design), and Kuba Maralik (photographs, cover design).
