Los Angeles born and bred, Vangelis and Vidal Vargas were raised in the ’80s on a steady diet of Latin freestyle, electro, and new wave that pervaded their urban environment. Their father also exposed them to progressive acts Vangelis, Tangerine Dream and Kraftwerk, planting early seeds for aural exploration. By the mid ’90s they were immersed in LA’s underground scene and heavily researching electronic music’s roots. After years of influence, they began to express their musical vision through their own recordings and performances. Vidal and Vangelis eventually found common ground with producer/DJ Drumcell, and in 2002 they formed Droid Behavior and the record label out of frustration with the city’s lack of knowledge, acceptance, and understanding for Midwest-bred techno music and its European counterparts.
