The duo joined forces after meeting on Myspace in the mid-2000s and created a movement, unlike anything that had been seen or heard at the time — yet felt incredibly familiar. Retro yet futuristic. It was a breath of fresh air, but also restored a feeling that had been missing from Hip-Hop. With roots in Detroit and Chicago, the duo took a wide range of musical influences spanning from Ghettotech, House, G-Funk, Boom Bap, and the futuristic sounds of The Neptunes, and turned it into something brand new and totally their own. There was something in the Great Lake water that had kids from across the globe emulating their style of dress and music.
