Starting with the late eighties George aka Floog had a sensibility to the electronic music, in that time in the form of Depeche Mode, Kraftwerk, Jean Michel Jarre and Pink Floyd.
In the beginning of the nineties he was also influenced a lot about the groovy gems of KLF, Snap, Technotronic and Prodigy but still having Depeche Mode as role model musically speaking and because of this he thought about making music by himself.
Firstly he had the opportunity to access some real Roland analog synths through a family friend and that was the sparkle that started his fire about electronic music equipment.
In 1995 he acquires his first personal computer and finally started to experiment his musical ideas, using at that time a trendy software called Faster Tracker that was based on samples.
Till 2000 he crafted his computer music skills and then he felt the need to evolve and use this into a more practical way.
True a commune friend he met Roby in 2002 (aka Livio&Roby) and this is how all started in the sense of making real club music, discovering a new universe of possibilities related to underground techno and house.
Together they put the base of a studio and after 2 years Livio join them and they created the project Monochrome, and this project in less than 2 years already being very popular in Romania and won a global DJ competition in Las Vegas declared Global Winners of Heineken Thirst Studio 2006, where they took both prices jury and popular choice one., after this starting an worldwide tour including US and Europe.
