"It was the early 2009 when this duo took place after both mark their solo debuts into different musical intrests.Achilleas Dimitracopoulos aka Fog and Nikos Kostoglou aka Arara's story goes way back in the early days of electronica, but somehow their paths didnt come to a crossroad.
Achilleas was taking his diploma in CGA in the morning and been a succesfull promoter in regular bases to a noumerous of venues at nights, while Nikos was traveling from Germany, Holland, Mexico, Turkey and Tokyo gathering expiriencies and information regarding electronicas next best thing... To make the long story short these guys met as guest djs after a couple of years and both felt the same way. It was collaboration time.
Joining forces hooked up in their studios and after endless of audio cuts they finally nailed it. Their first single "Congamusment" was a deep and dirty tech house bomb that instantly has been signed from the well known Noir Music. It was a matter of days when these Greek duo saw their first offer climb Beatport Charts gaining massive support from all the ussual suspects... Toolroom's favourite child Mark Knight host their track to his radio show among others like Martin Eyerer and Nic Fanciulli.
After that almost every single of them were flirting with deep / house and tech house charts playing along to all radio shows like Proton / Frisky / Danceradio and Itunes Podcasts. People like Mark Knight, Nic Fanciulli, D.Ramirez, Dubfire, Hernan Cattaneo, Noir, Luciano, Ritchie Hawtin, Style Of Eye, Reboot, Joris Voorn and many many more was hammering every now and then their tracks.
Most recent Nikos is working of upgrading their newest live p.a which is gonna blend Arara's Cinematic / Bossa Nova sound with Fog's housy elements giving a fresh aroma and perspective to this era. Nikos is also based now in the center of club culture Berlin adding some extra promotional exposure with his beautifull dj sets and also updating their studio works, while Fog's newest works shout through labels like Brise / Plastic City / Escapism Musique / Back and Forth / Metroline Limited / Save Room and Time Has Changed.
Sky is the limit and this guys hard work is prooving it puting each day their own mark into musical standarts .
Seems about right...
