David Lilja and Patrik Rydberg are two musicians and producers from Sweden. In 1989, they started to make music together. This was a beginning of Cut 'n' Paste recording studio. At first, they composed some italo disco stuff, then they became interested in synthdance. First mindXpander tracks have been presented at MP3.com and Spacesynth.de (back then it was Laserdance.de). Thanks to that, they started their co-operation with Hypersound Productions.
