So underground, you’ve never heard of them. They’re literally underground being “basement producers” of their own music. The duo is originally from Ottawa, but currently based in Toronto, where they’ve just released their sophomore EP “Popular”. Using Mikky’s vocals, Alex’s production and beats and their joint contribution in lyrics, Mikky and Alex take electronic dance music to the dark side. They’ve created a sound they have deemed “DDM” dark dance music, which suits the mood of their EP. Mikky and Alex have come a long way and refined their sound throughout the past few years. Because of Mikky and Alex’s bond as twin sisters and best friends, they are able to think cohesively and seamlessly to create music that encapsulates both their own unique sound into one vision.
Since their last EP was released in 2012, Mikky and Alex have been quietly working on a new artistic project. For two years they experimented with different sounds, built a recording studio in their childhood home and wrote and produced dozens of songs. They were frustrated by the confines of classical instruments in their recordings and moved from traditional instruments into electronic production. When EDM went mainstream, people around them started understanding the way they made music. Mikky started making original beats to match her songwriting melodies while Alex started working on the surrounding production. They finally re-emerged with a new sound that is reflective in their current EP.
Since moving back to Toronto they played their first show ever at the Legendary Horseshoe Tavern, DJ’d at Parts and Labour and booked a slot at Canadian Music Week. They recently played their EP “Popular” along with their yet to be released EP “Tres Bien” at the Cave, the venue above renowned live space Lee’s Palace.
Mikky and Alex have released a music video shot and directed by Alex, starring Mikky for the first single titled “Guys Like You” which is featured on their EP “Tres Bien”.
