Not Okay (Marius and Paulius), two guys from Lithuania teamed up in 2009 as producers team after knowing each other for many years. As DJs, Paulius & Marius have been spinning together from as far back as 2008. Electronic music inspired them so much, that decided to create something of their own. Located in a mini home studio in Kaunas they started to produce tracks and remixes which are mostly released on 'progressive trance' labels and known for good quality and great progressive melodies. Together with producers Weepee and Daiquiri they founded "White2Black" record label, which provides the biggest progressive house export in Lithuania The duo draws inspiration from Dinka, Michael Woods, Andy Duguid, Jerome Isma-Ae. Within a short period of time they got huge support from many famous world wide artists as Above and Beyond, Tiesto, Paul Oakenfold ,Markus Shculz,
TyDi,Dash Berlin, Bobina, Richard Durand, Andy Duguid, Michael Woods, Beltek, Flash Brothers, Mr Pit and other Lithuanian top producers. Success which visited them in short period only awakens the desire to reach higher peaks. Now carving out a trancey, provocative, increasingly recognizable soundscape with each one of productions, Not Okay stands on the threshold of an electronic dance music breakthrough.
In late 2010, they started monthly radio show 'Distant Signals' on Pure.FM radio. Tune in 2 Hours show including guest mixes, every first wednesday of the month.
In 2011 fall, they started create more progressive house / ambient music under another alias - Outward.
