Starving Yet Full
Dinamo Azari and Alixander III had been DJing for several years, before they decided to work together. Fritz Helder and Starving Yet Full met at a karaoke bar while "dancing to Donna Summer". By 2008, all four had formed Azari & III, but it wasn't until 2009 that their first single Hungry for the Power was released, followed by Reckless (With Your Love), which drew the attention of Canadian DJ-producer-musician Tiga. The music video accompanying Hungry for the Power was considered controversial by YouTube and taken off the website for several weeks. In 2010 they collaborated with Friendly Fires on a track "Stay Here".
In 2011, the band re-released two of their first singles and shot a music video for Manic. In August, their debut album Azari & III was released, being described as a throwback to 1980s house music. The band have appeared on a number of festivals, including Glastonbury and Lovebox. In February 2012 their debut album was re-released in Europe.
