Troglodytes is David Hall, 25 years old, & Fadi Acar, 29 years young. Both of them produce a uniquely dark forest style from their cave studio in Eskilstuna, 80km away from Psy-mecca Orebro. Both of them were born in Sweden. Being brought up in a musical family, Dave went to learn "Estethic music" for 3 years in College. He took a gap of some years and then did one year with a Folkschool learning to record music digitally through computers besides the theory including mic-placement, anatomy of the ear, analog vs digital, acoustics etc..

Dave''s first music influences were the 60-70s rock and 80 rock/hardrock in the house, later when he started getting his own impression of things, he tuned to rap/hip-hop in 1st grade school. He also began to Dj in School parties mainly playing dance music for a few years and also did some hip-hop music with cubasis.

In the year 95-96 Dave discovered what he considers real dance music - Goa Trance and immediately fell in love the first time he heard it.

Fadi has been influenced by his older bother and sister who brought him all kind of music. From hardrock to their folk music, assyrian traditional. In early age he started listening to hiphop, trance, goa from the early 90s.

Nowadays he listens to psy and gangstarap from Memphis USA, dirty south...Not the MTV commers though. Also reggae like Black Uhuru, Alpha Blondy, Israel Vibration and Steel Pulse. One drop!
