From the Electronic Disco sound of Giorgio Moroder, Patric Cowley to the punkfunk of Liquid Liquid, A Certain Ratio and more contemporary sounds of todays dance music, their sets are an erotic, fun and surprising collage of all the above. Their seemingly never-ending output has included a long-running weekly party in New York ("Organic Grooves"), a legendary mix tape series in the 80s ("SMYLONYLON"), their own (now 16 year old) record label CODEK, days of video, 4 albums and over 80 official remixes for the likes of Riton, Supermen Lovers and Hercules & Love Affair on labels such as DFA, Kitsune and Modular. This staggering work rate and uncompromising attitude has earned them spots on the playlists and charts of a wide range of Djs including Ivan Smagghe, Trevor Jackson and Erol Alkan.

The duo, Alex and Sasha aim to explore the cosmic background in every possible way by creating and putting together different elements of art/graphic design and styles of music in to a seamless flow, which ultimately leeds them to create "In Flagranti", an act that would reflect all that, and continue to explore the endless possibilities of a 'cut and paste' esthetic. The unique, ever-changing environment of Jim Lambie's Poetry Club will house this party, steam-train smoke-machine and all.
