Van and Mike first hooked up when French Rock journalist Romain Decoret brought Van to assist a concert featuring Mike's power trio RogMikEnzo. Mike invited Van to jam and so he became featured on the RogMikEnzo live album 'Parisian Nights' on two tracks: P.A Shuffle and Mercy, Mercy, Mercy. In the following years they hooked up again in a duo format with various guest musicians.
