Since forming in 2003, the pair (made up of Ariaan Olieroock and Peter Kriek), have produced a string of successful releases on labels as diverse as Yoshitoshi, Alternative Route, Plastic Fantastic, Nu Republic, Armada, LMR and most recently Above & Beyond’s progressive house offshoot Anjunadeep.
Meanwhile, in 2004, Aad & Peter also started bringing their music to clubs, doing a collaboration with Dutch DJ / Producer Stef Vrolijk. Throughout the year 2004 they performed as a live act in conjunction with the DJ-sets of Stef, playing at most of the big festivals and big gigs in Holland throughout the year.
They’ve also launched their own successful imprint Bits and Pieces, on which they delivered their superb Live At Warung album, inspired by one of Brazil’s most famous beach clubs. It comprised of a mix featuring underground sounds handpicked from across the globe, alongside an entire disk of their own unreleased material.
As they enter 2006, the guys continue to tour extensively as DJ's and are currently working on a new live show. The promise of a new double CD original artist album displays the many sides to the 16 Bit Sound. One CD will boast many of their club anthems, while the second will show the guys experimental side. The album is due for release in the opening months of the new year followed by some high profile remixes and studio collaborations.
Seemingly, the world of dance music is at their feet. Watch out for the 16 Bit Lolita's in a fest near you!
