“…one can imagine that it won’t be long before they take their place alongside the greats in the annals of electronica.”
The Megadrives, founders of Quantum Groove Records, are two long time fans of Electronic music turned producers & DJs. Drawing much of their inspiration from Electronica duo peers such as The Chemical Brothers, The Crystal Method, Daft Punk and Orbital. The Megadrives unabashedly express themselves using the computer to output original, propulsive sounds in their quest to bring every listener together on the dance floor via the rhythms & melodies.
Their live shows are the definition of intense creative energy. Wherever they perform, they leave audiences mesmerized. In a sea of DJs and Ableton Live producers—The Megadrives stand-out by writing and performing all self produced music using the music software Renoise. Within the realm of electronic music, they refuse to limit themselves to one particular genre, exploring any style that excites them. They’re at their best unleashing an ever-changing, fluid mix of Acid, Ambient, Breaks, Down-tempo, Drum & Bass, Dub, Glitch, House, IDM, Psychedelic, Techno, and hybridized sounds that have yet to be labeled. They have also been known to include live video projections.
“A Fitting soundtrack for an apocalyptic party or any party.”
