After handing themselves over to the authorities of the 19th district, Oliv and Axel were incarcerated in a maximum security prison in Paris to serve a 5-year sentence. They met at the cafeteria and discovered their shared love for house music. From that moment , they plotted an escape plan together: using makeshift synths, they composed ‘August’ and, thanks to a childhood friendship, managed to escape, finding a refuge within the walls of Color Sound Studios.
Behind the walls, they dedicated their pilgrim days to meditation – when they reached a state of sufficient transe, they would launch Ableton Live. Thus, the songs Rebuild and Nobody Else were created. Their escape run was momentarily put on hold when Axel was sent to the northern Scandinavian mines, where he attempts to survive, feeding on the scraps of salmon that his jailers feed him. Nevertheless, he continues his compositional endeavours, in the hope that his torturers fulfil their promise and finally release him in June.
