SquarElectric is a duo consisting of belgian drummer/producer Michael Schack and DJ/Electrowizz Steve Pittoors.
Steve and Michael ran into each other regularly in the early 2000s, mostly backstage at music festivals in Belgium and sometimes at an Antwerp petrol station filling up their cars. Early 2005 they started exchanging musical ideas and their first demo track, “Sex & Death”, immediately turned heads on Broadjam.com (high entries on electronic and breakbeat Top 10 Central Europe)
But they are perfectionists and simply found the demo tracks not good enough for a true album release. So they continued composing, recording and tweeking, which now results in a finished first "solo" album for both of them.
Through their joint connections, this SquarElectric album features guest appearances by Chuck D (Public Enemy), Joseph Bowie (Defunkt), Hans Dulfer (Candy’s dad) and David "Tweeky" Ahlund (Stockholm, Sweden) amongst others.
It even includes a Chinese traditional love chant, totally remade into a challenging high energy "Drum'nBass'nSynth" track named "1000 Years".
