Since then, he expanded his studio equipment ten fold, so it was only a question of time until the quality of his tracks drastically improved. In spring 2003 the Label “Drizzly Recordings” showed interest in the song “Are You Ready”, shortly afterwards he signed his first contract at the age of 15 years. Patrick Scheidt, born on May 23rd 1986 in Stuttgart, took a path similar to Dominik’s. He began to take Keyboard-lessons very early in his childhood and it was his music teacher who taught him the basic principles of musical theory and music production. After some time of saving money, Patrick could afford a studio PC and his first synthesizer.
He improved his skills very quickly and his songs soon became successful on various Internet Music Sites. Due to his success on those music portal websites, he quickly made new contacts with other prodcuers in the electronica scene. One of which,was Dominik. In May 2003, Patrick and Dominik decided to meet with each other for the first time. The chemistry between the two was perfect.
Both had the same goals in mind. Since then, they have decided to work together and became best friends. The first common release - beside some remixes - appeared in early 2004. "Virus Inc. - The Virus" was a Hardtrance track with a commercial flare.
Soon enough, it became a big favourite in GER/AUS/UK and was also licensed to Yoji Biomehanika for his "Future of Hard Dance 002" Complilation Mix CD which was distributed in Japan. Dominik and Patrick first recieved international attention with their hit track "Kamui - Ghosts" which was released on "Overdose Records" (Dj Scot Project's legendary homebase label along with other Hardtrance pioneers just like Dj Wag, Hypetraxx, Dj Sakin, Schwarze Puppen etc.). The two were overwhelmed with the success of the track when they found it playlisted by many recognized DJs in the scene. Even to this day, a year later the track is still being featured on compilation CDs and big events around the world such as "DefQon 1", "Mystery Land", "Godskitchen at Pharmacy Australia". As the success of "Ghosts" was spreading in 2004, Patrick and Dominik also produced "Synthflut - No Time to Sleep", soon after to be signed by "Resistance Records UK", in addition to the release they were requested to produce remixes for "Dj Dean" and "Yakooza (Dj Wag)" and further projects on different labels. With priorities in mind, school and final exams were to be finished, which later opened up a whole new world of possibilities and more free time to experiment with various styles of electronic music.The experimentation led to new songs ranging from progressive trance, to hard edged tech trance. This in turn played a big role on the decreased number of releases from Dominik and Patrick.
But the two have sat down to work on a more diverse sound which is more than ready to be presented in 2006. Along with the producing success, in Summer 2005 Patrick and Dominik entered the world of DJing that enabled them to play various events and clubs in Germany and the UK. After having great support from established DJs, "Kamui - Drop Shot" is their follow up track to "Ghosts" which got released in December 2005 on the new label "Traffic Tunes", owned by the ex-Overdose A&R and "Dj Wag", whom also has featured "Still In Progress" (one of their many new tracks) on the upcoming DJ Wag Album "Global". Furthermore, Patrick and Dominik are pleased about their recent Record Contract with "Dj Scot Project" and "Kan Cold" ("Derb/Hennes and Cold")label "Druck Records". The two have since then produced a two-tracker for Benjamin Reichert (a resident DJ of the club "Proton" in Stuttgart). March 2006 proved to be a successful month with "Benjamin R. - Hybrid (Kamui Mix)/ Cold Passion!"Not to menchion the countless playlists from many djs around the world.
