Their debut EP ‘100% No Modern Talking’ racked up over 500,000 downloads, which included the track ‘Internet Friends’ and consequently sent social networks into a feeding frenzy. ‘Internet Friends’ has since gone onto receive in excess of 15 million views on YouTube. In 2012 the EP ‘Rage Valley’ was released and remixes for Nero and Labrinth soon followed, as well as collaborations with Skrillex and Steve Aoki. With the focus now on their greatly anticipated return to SW4, following their storming debut last summer, plus the upcoming release of their ‘Haunted House’ EP, 2013 looks like it will be their best year yet.
