Moritz von Oswald, half of both Basic Channel and Maurizio, went on to become one of the most influential producers of techno in the 1990s. One of his first forays into electronic music was with Thomas Fehlmann as 2MB.

Adding either Juan Atkins or Eddie Fowlkes into the mix produced 3MB – the name Dimitri Hegemann gave to the pioneering 3 Men in Berlin.
