IGO was formed in 2006 as a Synth Pop duo. The band members include JJay (vocals) and B6 (electronics).
JJay and B6 first met in 2000, but only five years later they started to produce music together. As the most famous DJ in Shanghai, B6 played frequently in the major nightclubs of Shanghai and quickly built up a solid followings. B6 is also an electronic music producer, with various styles of electronic music. He has published multiple compositions, including the background music for a Nike advertisement. He is also the founder of Neocha.com, one of the largest internet platforms for youth indie-culture in China. The US-educated JJay was known as the lead vocalist and songwriter of the local post-punk, new wave band Bird On a Wire.
