About us

We obsess over sound. This is one basic truth about us that probably will never change.

We are friends. Beatmakers. Engineers. Producers. Music Lovers.

From dozing during class and sequencing the whole night to locking ourselves in a room packed with music gear.

Touching all the faders, turning every knob, flipping each one of those switches.

 

What drives us

It was all a dream.

The first pattern you created. That crappy snare drum you put on the backbeat. The ridiculous amount of bass you boosted on that Kick. The unique high you first felt when creating sound.

To cultivate this buzz. That is what we set out to do.

Actually this is not only about us, meaning the two of us. It’s about us in the sense of everyone that shares this experience.

 

 

how we started

We feel that in order to give you some real insight about us, you need to know about our past.
About Us - Manuel in the studio in Ghana

Recording Studio in Ghana / Accra – West Africa in 2000 (Manuel age 17)

 

I started making Rap beats around 1996 with an old Intel i486 switching between Cubase vst 3, Fruity Loops, Sound Forge and Hammerhead as my main tools.

Until I got my hands on the Roland MC 307 and years later the Akai MPC2000xl.

I started out with my boys producing beats on the weekend right after school and all weekend long. Fun fact, during that time I lived in Iran.

No western music was allowed and punished hard by law. Yeah – so the best choice is to make Hip Hop beats and rap lyrics. We recorded 3 albums and I remember the first time I was able to “Burn” a CD of our work.

 

That was something. After that the internet happened and opened a new era.

About us Jonas

My old room when I was still living with my parents. Berlin (Jonas age ~16)

 

This is me, Jonas, maybe 20 Years ago. Ever since I can remember, I was in love with music. Beats. Instrumentals. 

 

I started with an ages old computer and every software I could get my hands on. Young me used to push all the faders to the top, then turn the bass on all channels to max.

The beats were recorded on cassette tape and all my friends had to hear them.

 

I invested every penny I made working after school in the tools necessary. My friends got a drivers license. I got a new Sound card, and a Computer with the ability to drive two screens at the same time.

I did barely sleep one or two hours and slept in school.

I did barely sleep two hours at night so I slept in school.
