Added to this, they are famous for their love of the party - frequently being the last to leave the club. As dedicated music lovers and passionate entertainers, it was a natural progression for the duo to turn their appetite for music and endless parties into producing for themselves.

Dame Music - Berlin (DE)
Eyke was born in the North of Germany and spent his childhood and early teen years on creative pursuits (drawing, writing and singing), soaking in inspiration from the meadows and forests amongst the abundant flowers and wildlife. In his young adulthood, he changed his home base several times, including the USA for one year, before he found his way to Berlin, where the meadows were replaced by city streets and the flowers by whiskey.
Eyke started making his own piano-based music under the moniker My Stillborn Brother, which over time developed into a more electronic sound. He found it important, however, always to use the computer simply as a recording tool, never programming, always capturing the spontaneity of his artistic process.
Now, after developing an admiration for and friendship with Bloody Mary, Eyke is putting his voice into the new context of her gothic dancefloor sounds. His first song with Mary, 'Spinning Around' from her Arabesque EP, compares the feeling of love with dancing in the club, starting off with overwhelming emotions and excitement, but sometimes getting too heavy, like becoming disoriented amid the crowd and the flashing lights. 'Spinning Around' is just the first collaboration between Bloody Mary and Eyke and offers a hint of what's to come on her sophomore album due in 2011.

In 2004 she created a dance bomb with the release of her first single 'Dillema' on 100% Pure. It became the 2004 summer anthem of the Cocoon club (Ibiza) loved by the likes of Richie Hawtin, Ricardo Villalobos, Sven Väth and Luciano.

Dax grew up listening to the UK sounds of jungle, drum n bass and garage.

He became an avid vinyl collector buying from his local record store “Black Market” on a weekly basis whilst at the same time producing and crafting his sound. His first vinyl releases would come in 2005 on old Jungle labels like Mickey Finn’s “Urban Takeover” under alias “Dangerous” and his own imprint back then “Xplicit Sound.” Following on from this Dax went on to discover the sounds of techno during one summer spent in Ibiza. From this point on his passion for cutting edge 4 by 4 beats took over but the old jungle influences are still heard today in his dj sets and productions.

Degree educated in Music Technology and running his own studio in East London Dax J also works as an in demand sound and mastering engineer. With a stack of music set to be released and a busy gig schedule over the rest of the year the future is looking bright for the UK artist.
