Underwater Pilots are Manuel G. Richter and Gregoire Vanoli. They are a german band creating electronic pop music with subtile darkness, melodic hooklines and dancable beats. Mostly they work in the area of dark-electro and the future-pop-scene. In 2002 the guys met for the first time while working on a remix and noticed that they had a similar way of feeling music. But Manu and Greg also noticed their completely different ways of producing. While working together,they saw how they could complement each other and decided to start a project. Why they chose Underwater Pilots as the band name? Because Manu and Greg love spherical and liquid sounds, kind of an underwater feeling. And the guys both love to sit in their cockpits, pressing buttons and turning wheels.In summer 2002 they created a first demo. They worked on some older tracks from Manu, giving them a more modern touch. This was the beginning of Underwater Pilots.
