Song-writing "the same" for electro house act

The song-writing process for underground electro house sensations Mstrkrft is no different to that of an ordinary band, it has been claimed.

br /> Jesse Keeler, founder of the Canadian act, told andPOP that the duo put together music in exactly the same way, but simply used different tools to do so.

"It's the same song-writing process," he remarked. "It's like, 'Hey, I've got a riff' - it's not for a guitar, but a synthesizer; a drum pattern idea but a drum machine, not a drummer."

Mstrkrft generally do not use samples in their music, instead composing all the parts themselves.

Since starting in 2005, they have gone on to become one of the biggest DJ acts in North America and have been commissioned to remix songs from the likes of The Kills, Wolfmother and Bloc Party.

On May 25th, they will perform at London's Ministry of Sound, one of the final stops on their month-long tour of Europe.
