Troelsen was only 15 when he founded the band in the mid-'90s. After recording a self-produced EP titled See You At the Railroads, the band released its debut album, Dancing Casanova in 1998. A sweet brew with elements of power pop, synth pop and lounge, Dancing Casanova shows off Troelsen’s penchant for syrupy melodies and sticky hooks. Superheroes would go on to release two more albums, the more synth-pop-leaning Igloo (1999) and Superheroes (2002).

And he's done more than just K-Pop. Back in 2003, Troelsen worked on the dancefloor classic "Move Your Feet" by Junior Senior.
