Hippie Sabotage is the stage name for duo - and siblings - Jeff and Kevin Saurer. Originally spurred to make music together through their shared passion for skateboarding, the two experimented with making their own skate videos backed by their own original soundtracks. The pair proceeded to explore infusing hip-hop beats into EDM, chill house music and the diversity of sounds they heard in their multicultural hometown of Sacramento. Before starting their own act, the Saurer brothers built beats for rappers like Yukmouth and J. Leake and, later, worked with Chicago musicians like Kami de Chukwu and Calez. As their sound expanded to incorporate a wider range of musical influences, the Saurer brothers produced beats for artists like Alex Wiley and C Plus.
