They are the last to be borns in the family of four. They have two elder sisters.

"We don't consider ourselves celebrities, we are role models. We don't come from a super family. It's simple and average. You just have to believe that you can make it regardless of where you come from.

He also explained that it took them a long time to come up with the name revolution.

"We were going to do different music so we wrote a list of names and revolution stood out. It went with what we were doing and wanted.''

The twins who don't smoke nor drink said they became DJs when they started stealing their uncle's radio cassettes whilst washing his car. "We would play them at our friends parties. Then we met Big Oscar who is now known as Oskido. He played the same kind of music that we did. He gave us more knowledge, ''said George. After chilling with Oscar for a year and half. They met Kingston who owned a music shop, which stored the music they wanted. He also gave them advice.

We have been at this job for the past 15 years.''

When asked about their future plans, Joseph chipped in and said, ``we have done most of what we wanted, we have a label, a studio the only thing left is to work extra hard and get international recognition as one of the best DJs.
