High school friends Rafael, and Vincen started their music career late 2012, Vincen owning a new DJ controller and Rafael owning a new Macbook. The two teamed up with Vincen teaching Rafael how to DJ and Rafael introducing Vincen to the preinstalled software Garageband. They eventually acquired Ableton learning the new DAW together and have been honing their skills since then. The two have been releasing music throughout the years under and old alias, but now forming 1st Place in early 2015, favoring arps, chords and sometimes using strong baselines and 808 kicks. 1st Place can definitely bring together beautiful sounds while sometimes getting their hands dirty with some glitch and gritty basses.
