Hip-hop/low bap group formed on 20th June 1992 by Michalis Mitakidis (a.k.a. [a=B.D. Foxmoor]), Nikitas Klint (a.k.a [url=http://www.discogs.com/artist/Xray]X-Ray[/url]) and [a=Dimitris Kritikos] (a.k.a. [a=DJ MCD]).

Being the first Greek hip-hop group to release an album, "Διαμαρτυρία" in 1993, Active Member had dominated the hip-hop scene in Greece for many years. Although the genre had already existed for more than a decade, it was still unknown to the majority of Greeks in the early 90s. However, the group redefined their music in 1995 with the release of the record [url=http://www.discogs.com/Active-Member-%CE%A4%CE%BF-%CE%9C%CE%B5%CE%B3%CE%AC%CE%BB%CE%BF-%CE%9A%CF%8C%CE%BB%CF%80%CE%BF/release/223047]To Megalo Kolpo[/url] (The Big Trick). Their newly founded sub-genre has since then been called Low Bap and it is characterized by the slow bass, rhythm, and the emphasis on lyrics in the songs.

Presently, the group is one of the most widely recognised in Greece, staying away from the rest of the Greek hip-hop scene though. They are deeply involved in the music industry and community, including organizing events such as the annual Low Bap Festival in Athens. They also encourage the youth to enter the scene, and have released records comprised by demo songs sent to them by new performers.

The members of the group have changed throughout the years, but B.D. Foxmoor has always been the lead singer and the nucleus of the group.

Today, the group is made up of B.D. Foxmoor and female rapper [a=Sadahzinia].

On 15/7/1998 they performed at 'Rockwave Festival' (Pireaus) along with '[a=Portishead]', '[a=DJ Andy Smith]', '[a=Spiritualized]', '[a=Asian Dub Foundation]', '[a=Κωνσταντίνος Βήτα]' & '[a=Ψόφιοι Κοριοί]'.
