During the early 2000s, guitarist/keyboardist Dan Balis and keyboardist Eugene Cho -- musicians who met while attending Vassar College in Poughkeepsie, New York -- produced and remixed house tracks for the Brique Rogue and Stay True labels. In June 2006, after opting to move closer to house musicGÇÖs disco roots, the two hatched Escort with GÇ£Starlight,GÇ¥ a contemporary disco single that could have passed for a fresh take on a lost Skyy 12GÇ¥. Recorded with the assistance of several musicians, including vocalists Zena Kitt and Kemba Russell, the 12GÇ¥ release featured a dub mix from Metro Area's Darshan Jesrani. Three additional singles followed through the next 12 months: GÇ£Love in IndigoGÇ¥ (October 2006), GÇ£A Bright New LifeGÇ¥ (February 2007), and GÇ£All Through the NightGÇ¥ (May 2007). Their fifth single didnGÇÖt materialize until three years later, and by that time, Balis and ChoGÇÖs lineup had changed and expanded to a total of 17 musicians, including horn and string sections. GÇ£Cocaine Blues,GÇ¥ released in October 2010, also featured a new lead vocalist, Adeline Michele, and it served as a teaser for the bandGÇÖs first album, issued in November 2011. ~ Andy KellmanPortions of Content Provided by Rovi Corporation.
