From USA and Argentina respectively, both artists are long based in Berlin, Germany, and work together on music composition and live appearances since over 7 years. For the Slaves EP, they've collaborated with the Cuban trumpet player and percussionist Daniel “Congo” Allen.
Previously known for their remix of the song “Heroes” [FULMEN 058], Rayo is now part of the Fulmen artist roster, and will release more musical experiments on the our soon.

Influenced by post-dubstep, lo-fi house, and trip-hop, 1five1’s sound draws from iconic outfits like Portishead, even as she completely pushes her own distinctive beats and textures into sophisticated spaces beyond those original inspirations. Bandcamp Album of the Day Dec 13, 2018
