Their first release was Flopper (CD, LP) from Vibrant Music / Basic Channel / EFA in 2003, and the second was Wroln (CD, Enhanced) from LO-Z Recordings in 2007. Qebo explore electronic music by combining organic elements, synthetic rhythms and glitchy sound design into structured fragments of information. Over the years, Qebo have performed live shows in Greece and many other European countries. Their journey into sound, is currently being carried forward by Alex Retsis.
