From the beginning, I.D.O.G. & Crypton aka Pornbugs were connected to electronic music. They started their common career in various clubs and radio stations in Germany in 2000. Their first residency followed in 2001 at Halberstadt’s sandstone caves (Subsoil Club), which is one of the most exceptional locations in Germany. The catchy sequences in every one of their pieces are underlined by driving beats. In 2003, both DJs published their first release as I.D.O.G. & Crypton, followed by another five before 2005. Since 2005 they have played mainly as Pornbugs, their tech-house/ minimal project with an extremely dance floor oriented sound. From January 2006, they started to began their own label, calling Bondage Music, which became a springboard for ambitious sounds ranging from Minimal to Tech-house. You can hear Pornbugs’ distinctive sound at their own nomadic party, "Zuckerbrot & Peitsche," around Berlin. With their furious sound, Pornbugs stir the crowd into thrills of ecstasy...
