After being flown in for a two-week DJ tour by the Maikhao Dream Villa Resort, the pair, Joe and Spencer, have spent their time developing their music, indulging in the culture and pumping up the crowds.

The duo started off in London, England where they infused their individual musical tastes together and eventually met Kimberly Wyatt from The Pussycat Dolls. Soon they began to produce music with her in LA. The duo then signed to Chyme Records, which signalled the beginning of their exciting careers.

The pair have been playing at festivals and parties, including some of the most popular UK events: Wireless Festival; the notorious Party in the Park; and T in the Park.

Having worked alongside the likes of Molly from The Saturdays, Kimberly Wyatt, Roger Sanchez and many more, they have not only developed a distinct musical sound but also learned from some of the best and most popular artists in the industry.

Their DJ style can be best described as a tropical flare with a house and groovy edge.

Joe said, “We have a universal sound...something even your grandpa could listen to.”

The name of their band simply represents their lifestyle back in LA. Having both grown up near the beach, the pair used this as their inspiration.

“You can listen to our music in a nightclub, or you can choose to listen to it at home...whatever you want,” Joe said.

With a production company under their belt and experience working on various television programmes including appearances on live TV, it is no wonder the pair are making a name for themselves.

“Doors are never closed, the industry always presents many opportunities. People will always be excited about music, especially discovering new sounds. Everyone has been so receptive to us. Especially since it’s our first time in Thailand,” Spencer said.

Their two-week visit was organised by the Maikhao Dream Villa Resort team who put them up in one of their luxurious rooms.

Joe said, “This is honestly one of the nicest rooms I have ever stayed in.”

Spencer was touched by how accommodating everyone was: “It’s like a home away from home, wherever you come from”.

But they won’t be too sad to head back home, as Spencer was awaiting two of his singles to hit the Top 40 chart, while Joe continues to successfully take on the industry. Two powerful people, who collaborate both together and individually, can only lead to success. The duo definitely made their name in Phuket, and promised to be back.
