Micheal Fraser Live Violin/Gypsy tec/Swing Michael was sold straight from the hospital bed and was spirited away to the accompaniment of clicking hooves on the floor of the hospital corridors. His new "foster parent" seemed to love and care for him through babyhood, but from the very moment he could walk, he was strapped to his first violin and thrust out onto the cold streets to make a buck. It was the world's smallest violin and when Michael busked, the dough started rolling in. Hovering in the shadows, Michael's keeper would crack the whip hard, even when Michael succumbed to the pain of a path he had never chosen. So he took off under cover of night, fought with thievin' dope heads, ran from pervy creeps and stood up to gang threats. Freaks, thugs and junkies became his coolest friends and cruelest foes. One of these – a graffiti-writing chick from the inner city – introduced Michael to the alchemy of DJ culture and the glorious sounds of the electronic called 'house'. It was the rock n' roll to his funk n' jazz. She bestowed upon Michael a turntable and shoved him in the direction of a pothead friend down the street to begin his education. Michael had finally found liberation through the joy of music. He started writing and producing beats, and before long, some music industry fat cats were begging Michael to combine his superior violin skills with the bouncy beats off his ones and twos. And that, my friends, is how the story began.

The idea of collaborating classical instrumentation and modern electronic sounds, while maintaining traditional swing and fun dance grooves, is the "soul" foundation of the band.
