Their partnership began over 10 years ago, when they meet as fellow DJ's on the Athens club circuit. Then in 2009 the guys turned their attention to producing their own music. Since then they haven't looked back. Many will know the pair well from their output on many of the top Deep and Tech House labels around at the moment such as Metroline Limited, Neurotraxx, Back & Forth, Brise and Kina.
The key to their success is the diverse spectrum of inspirations they both bring to the table. Fog has always been a House head, collecting records from an early age, where as Arara grew up on a diet of Metal, Hip-Hop and Electronica. When it comes to the studio, Fog is the rhythm section and Arara is the melody man.
As both guys are based in different countries now (Fog - Athens, Greece. Arara - Berlin, Germany), their studio sessions are often 'online'. Bouncing ideas back and forth on email and instant message. But hey, it's 2012 and technology has its advantages ;)
For their Seven Music debut, Fog & Arara have created something very special. They have dropped their bpm's a lot lower than normal and carved out 3 inspiring deep, atmospheric, tech house soundscapes. The kind of music that's equally as alluring on headphones or a big club system!
