The brother duo has explored the universe since their youngest age and were first known as BMX freestyle pioneers in Europe (champions of France and Switzerland) and already then tried to reach the sky and escape into another galaxy.
They started their music career in a very young age and founded in 1999 the soul-funk-electro project SUMO, which released five albums and a lot of maxi singles. SUMO gained praise and recognition, especially in the house and electro scene in USA, France and UK. As a live band they have performed before artists such as Faithless, Jamie Lidell or Gotan Project. SUMO tracks were played on worldwide radio stations (BBC Gilles Peterson Worldwide, Nova) and were published on various compilations along with Laurent Garnier and Moby.
