Hailing from Podgorica, Montenegro By the beginning of the 90s, Ognjen aka AudioStorm became inspired by the pioneering electronic bands of the burgeoning underground dance scene and in particular the music from Goa, India.

Villa Violet aka Datacult aka Marco Scherer is no newcomer to the vast world of electronic music production. While keeping himself busy with sound-design jobs for Loopmasters, Digidesign, ReFX, Tone2 and fully exercising his creative, technical muscles, he also produces beats and bars under the well-known names Datacult and Meller. His creations come in many forms spanning from staunch techno through to his own brand of 'trippy trance' released through a plethora of labels such as John Fleming's Joof Recordings, Per-Vurt and Shabulized, Ovnimoon Records, Power House and more. But he doesn't limit his efforts to production and djing only, one does sometimes wonder how deep this creative mine of his is, and since 2010 readers of the German Beat magazine get regularly funneled more of his energy through articles about sound-design and workshops. Although Marco Scherer is not a name that's commonly associated with the new breed of electronica and dance producers circulating for the last couple of years, he's no novice when it comes to production and has highly honed skill within the studio.
