JAYENESS

  • No dualities for these guys but a triunity, functioning as a perfect structure to present Hip-Hop as it was meant to be. The two verbal constituents of the group, MC JaJa and MC Samoerai, had been working on tracks together for quite some time. The dj being the backbone of Hip-Hop, they knew they had to collaberate with a master on the wheels of steel to complete their project. This is where King D, the dj, enters the setting. In December 2011 Jayeness released their first EP called “Back 2 the Basics”. Their boombap beats, funky flows and energetic delivery caught the attention of many undergound Hip Hop heads and artists, but also got quite some recognition from artists and promoters outside the hiphopscene. Their latest tracks “Trip through your mind”, “The Tribe” feat. Aminah and “The Cure” can be found on the Phatmark Collective album “Friends, Fools & Family”. They are working on new material at the moment, to be released in 2014/2015.

Azer

Azer got hit by hip hop hearing a dj spin A Tribe Called Quest on a local radio station during hip hop’s golden age, the nineties. Ever since that moment hip hop stood at the center of his musical universe, leading to his love for jazz, funk, soul, afrobeat and all types of bass and electronic oriented groovesToday, with more than 10 years of dj experience, great insight in the latest tracks and deep knowledge of music reaching back to the 70’s, Azer can take people on an eclectic trip both during a one hour set as well as a 7 hour all nighter.
