BIO: Once upon a time a broken bodyguard posted on craigslist for someone to share his beats with. The good Dr. responded, and the rest is the future. An epic duo, sent through the cosmos to find one another and grind groovy beats together, spewing an eclectic mix of house, deep house, disco, new indie disco, electroswing, and roots dub to the masses
As a youth, Scott spent a decade learning tenor / alto sax in the big band tradition. Before he was a sophmore in highschool he had already preformed numerous times at Walt Disney World and in DownBeat's national music festivals with the ensembles he was a part of. Throughout the 90's and 00's, as co-founder of netwerk23, he helped bring DJs and musicians like Josh Wink, Adam X, Analog Pussy, David Alvarado, Frankie Bones, Dave the Drummer, and myriad others to the WNYSOR audience. He's been spinning for 2 decades in both mainstream and private venues throughout the US, Switzerland, and India. In the 90's he brought psytrance to Chippewa. In 2005, he introduced dubstep to the WNY underground, and currently spends his time making music and talking to international musicians about theirs (http://auxiliarymagazine.com/lifestyle/2012/05/interview-praga-khan-of-lords-of-acid/)... he's into playing deep, dark, grimy, erotic house... the kind that makes your nuts ache and wanna call a 1 900 # from inside the club.
The other half of this dynamic duo is Kristen "gfMD". Having spent a decade and a half as a tap and swing dance instructor, she keeps beLIEve's musical ramblings in line for the dancers. In her previous life, she was an MD and Mental Health practitioner... until she became disgruntled with the state of healthcare and treatment of those who suffer from mental illness in the US. Cellular and molecular biologist by education, bomb-girl at heart, she has a uniquely wholistic and approach to the human condition... life's all about the beat
