These days collaborations in dance music are a dime a dozen, but when Sebastian Benett, Antoine Clamaran, Gregori Klosman, Tristan Garner and Michael Canitrot formed Reepublic something was distinctly different. Rarely do collaborations involve five artists whose solo careers are already as strongly established as this group. The idea for the production supergroup grew from idle discussions during the guys' frequent run-ins at airports and on tours, before finally culminating at last year's Miami Music Week. "We had a dinner together," the group reflects, "and came out of the conversation our common wish of joining the forces in the studio and play all together behing the decks. That's how Reepublic was born."
