Meeting and Formation of 3OH!3:
3OH!3 is a duo of Sean Foreman and Nathaniel Motte who met as University of Colorado students in a physics class. Out of a mutual love of hip hop and electronic music they formed 3OH!3 in 2004. Both were serious about the music but felt the "scene" was too exclusive and missing an element of fun. A self-titled album was released in the summer of 2007. The duo caught the attention of Matt Galle, owner of indie label Photo Finish Records. 3OH!3 were signed to the label and connected with multi-platinum producer Matt Squire to put together a second album.
The album Want hit stores in the summer of 2008 along with the lead single "Don't Trust Me." Inclusion on the Warped Tour helped slowly build an audience for 3OH!3. Slow build in interest in the single ultimately resulted in it hitting the pop top 10 and selling more than two million downloads. Want was also certified platinum. "Starstrukk," a second single from the album, was remixed with additional vocals from Katy Perry and became a top 10 pop hit across Europe.
