Formed in the Spring of 2003 and named after the Dysecatmotel in Amsterdam where they first met, Dÿse (pronounced Dew-zuh[am.]) began as a fun, drunken side project for Jari and André to try new things with music they enjoyed, writing songs with no limitations or expectations from anyone. In 2004, the first in a trilogy of 7 inch singles was released called "Honig" (Honey), followed by dozens of gigs as they perfecting their live show and became tighter than tight. The second single "Aga Ragnag" came out in 2005, followed by the third and final instalment "Houthakkertje" in 2006. To promote the completion of the 7 inches, Jari and André booked themselves a gruelling four-week tour across Europe and the UK. The response to each show was overwhelming as audiences everywhere were blown away by this unique, energetic and incredibly entertaining duo. When they returned home from the tour, the band were approached to join the Exile on Mainstream Records family where they were warmly welcomed by all bands on the roster, elated to be associated with such great musicians and people.
