Dark-o-matic was founded by Greg Dovas in 2017. Greg switched from progressive rock music to electronic music earlier with his project NEONSKYLINES which was purely instrumental. In an attempt to expand his experimentation he decided to add vocals reaching a more synth-pop sound. That was the starting point of his collaboration with Piero Delux from the project Elsehow. Together, the duo started recording their new music best described as a cross between synthwave and modern synthpop but with a darker edge to it.
