The duo from Turin, Italy, disguises its identities (à la Daft Punk or Deadmau5) with cardboard box heads that alternately grin and glower with goofy emotions. These getups match musical blends that feature the likes of David Guetta and Swedish House Mafia bumping up against Usher and Lady Gaga.

The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
