In 2011, they stormed the world dance scene with ep play hard with such a punch that by then mostly masculinity EDM society literally smashed to pieces. Their vigorous combination of electronics with heavy rock riffs, enhanced by uncompromising lyrics in which they do not take servits and stand out sharply against all social and gender taboos, immediately broke the way not only to the tops of the charts but also on the most prestigious festival stage – Coachella or Lollapaloozu is not an exception. Sisters Jahan and Yasmine Yousaf, daughters of Pakistani and Muslim parents, are both the personification of female power and the unconventional fulfillment of the American dream!

"must see act"/ "you must see"/ and DJ veterans from Rob Swiro to Steve Aoki go even further and attribute this Danish-Swedish dua composed of Alexander Odden and Michael Parsberg to producer genius. Their comic alter egos and pixel logo in the shape of a heart then only completed their overall profile and transformed Pegboard Nerds from ordinary DJs to an iconic brand.
