They quickly evolved from flyer boys to Promoters and began running Edinburgh’s most successful club: "Eye Candy". The Twins excelled, drawing in crowds night after night and continually packing "Eye Candy" to capacity. The name "Eye Candy" stuck and they are still known around the world as simply...The EC Twins.
In 2005, the Twins decided to make one last attempt at bringing house music to Los Angeles, despite its lack of popularity on the West Coast. Starting from the ground up, the EC Twins began performing in small clubs and funneling all of their finances into their music and performances. After finding themselves virtually homeless. their hard work began paying off and slowly they developed a dedicated local fan base. After years of struggling, the EC Twins have arrived and proven to L.A. and the rest of the music world, that they can pack any club from trendy underground to celebrity A-list venues.
