Profile:
Disco - electronica production - songwriting duo

They met each other in the late 60's at an audition for the The Standells. The two went on to play in a rock band called Joshua, and in 1973 were hired by the AVI Records label to play on some extended remixes geared for dance-club play.
Their groundbreaking work is considered seminal for the evolution of electronic rhythm, from the 70's and on.
Their distinctive sound was partly a result of their jazz training, which showed up not only in their arrangements and chord progressions, but in the overall musicality and sonic imagination.
They created a series of alias projects and dominated the dancefloors as an american answer to the european electronic disco sound of Giorgio Moroder.
