Who: Joshua Frazier and Florin Merano, both 26, cook up catchy synth pop in a bedroom of their Seattle house. "We rigged up a vocal booth in the closet," says Frazier.

Sound: A cross between Soft Cell and Lady Gaga. "We saw Gaga play a high school auditorium a few years ago," recalls Merano. "It was really inspiring."

Blenders: In addition to their original material, GP create DJ mash-ups (one combines Owl City's "On the Wing" with Far East Movement's "Like a G6"). "We look at a song and say, 'How can we exploit the hooks to make it even better?' " Merano says.
