27-year-old Jordan Berndt and 26-year-olds Ry Johnson, Matt Harris, and Alex Guy met while attending the University of Minnesota — Duluth in 2009 and bonded over electronic music. All four relocated to Minneapolis within the past few years, and they formed a record label called Kajunga Records. They burst onto the scene last year with an epic warehouse party and a debut EP already pressed to vinyl, featuring four house tracks, one produced by each member.

They took the scene by storm over the following year and were booked frequently around town. The highlight of their young careers, though, came when someone else was playing. At a local party in September, Khutoretsky played Johnson’s “Vector Slut,” and reports that he has played Berndt’s “Disorientation” at every show he has played since then. The foursome has since released a second EP featuring four songs produced by Harris, for which they will hold a release party at the 7th Street Entry in January.
