||Meet Diss-Pair, the odd-couple duo delivering discordant ditties that have turned the music scene upside down. The group is made up of Ikkan, former bassist of the world-renowned Squid Squad, and Warabi, the up-and-coming prodigy beatsmith. These two are a mismatch made in heaven. When crafting new songs in the studio, they avoid each other at all costs to ensure each track maintains its one-of-a-kind edge and tantalizing tension.
Diss-Pair is a music duo comprising of the former Squid Squad bassist Ikkan and the Octoling DJ, Warabi. Their music was added to Splatoon 2 in the Version 4.1.0 update.
Their songs have an edgy feel, a mix of heavy metal and EDM. They also often feature low, husky vocals, similar to those of the Bottom Feeders.
- Ikkan is an Inkling and the band's bassist, formerly a member of the Squid Squad. He theorizes that the Squid Squad broke up at the peak of its fame, because everyone was self-indulgent, leaving little room for tension in the music's composition. He is a fan of metal, utilizing deep riffs and husky vocals he occasionally used in the Squid Squad, and pairs himself with the younger Warabi, trusting that they will keep up the tension in their music.
- Warabi is an Octoling who is described as an up-and-coming prodigy beatsmith. They are a successful musician who regularly travels around the world due to their parents being famous actors. As a result, they were exposed to many different types of music at a young age. They grew up with a classical gifted education, but got into electronic music in their teenage years, becoming famous by handling remixes of other popular artists.
