London-based cover band, Introducing Live, laugh in the face of the impossible — the group perform the albums that others won’t, they play the unplayable. What’s even more impressive is they do this without the help of any laptops, sequencers, or robots.

It isn’t often that a couple of teenage buddies maintain a friendship past young adulthood, let alone a prolific career partnership. However, Maarten Hoogstraten and Paul Baümer were never typical kids. Already an avid collector of vinyl and CDs by the age of 10, Maarten’s future as a producer-DJ was solidified by pubescence, and the day he met Paul, through his younger brother, two hours outside Amsterdam in Enschede, Holland. The two boys were both hooked on sound creation and even used the same ProTracker software to make electronic music.
