Isn’t there a saying that the best things come in two’s? Well that definitely applies to these musical duos. Some met at school, some met in a studio, wherever they met we’re glad that they did because they’re producing fire music for our emotions and ears. Sure separately they’re great but when they come together it’s a whole different experience. They’re what butter is to bread, chocolate sauce is to strawberries, fries are to burgers and yeah you get the idea. For these duos, team work has made the dream work.

9. Fly By Midnight
Justin Bryte and Justin Slaven (Slavo) describe their sound as “retro pop jams”. They met in a studio and after having a co-writing session together, Fly By Midnight was born.
