The duo formed while attending high school in Montreal as a hardcore pop-punk band, but later decided to move onto the more electronic sound of electronic dance music (EDM) after simply getting bored with the pop-punk sound.
The first song to put the duo on the map was their remix[when?] of the song "Daisy" from the studio album Daisy (2009) by the American alternative-rock band Brand New, which was put on The Hype Machine, an MP3 blog aggregator website.
Some of the major influences to their sound include Tiësto, Flux Pavilion, Greeley Estates, Bring Me the Horizon and Skrillex. The duo's signature sound includes high-pitched female vocals with electronic sounds and heavy drops. Through online social network sites, the duo were able to reach new levels of exposure by getting their first music video on the UKF Dubstep's YouTube channel. As of November 2012[update], the music video to the remix of "Everything to Me" by LIPS has over 2 million views and was produced and directed by Cedric Sequerra of LuckyFish Productions. All of the props, including weapons, helmets & monsters were made by hand by the cast and crew.
The duo is signed under the management team of The Standard Group. Some of their signature sound can also be credited to the program that they use to produce their music. Cakewalk SONAR is a less-commonly-used program in electronic dance music where FL Studio and Ableton Live reign supreme, but the duo give credit to the program in separating them from the pack. Some of the other equipment and software that they use include a Fireface console, Traktor Pro, Audio 6 and Kontrol X1.
The duo has toured across North America, as well as parts of Europe and Australia and have played at various music festivals including the American Electric Daisy Carnival in Las Vegas, Nevada. They also made their first appearance at the Ultra Music Festival 2013 in Miami and also played at the Ultra Music Festival in Seoul, South Korea in June 2013.
In August 2013, Adventure Club partnered with EDM lifestyle brand Electric Family to produce a collaboration bracelet for which 100% of the proceeds are donated to Fuck Cancer. The partnership has raised over $19k as of July 2014.
The duo hosted a special volunteering event at the Los Angeles Regional Food Bank in April 2014. They invited fans to come out for a meet-n-greet and to help package food for the less fortunate.
The Duo's single "Do I See Color" was featured on a 2012 Coca Cola commercial with dancer Marquese Scott
