Macoboy & Merzo

BROTHERS IN ARMS aka B.I.A sind ein DJ-/Produzenten Duo aus Köln und Wuppertal.

MACOBOY und MERZO waren bereits seit einigen Jahren in der Deutschen Drum&Bass-Szene aktiv, bevor sie sich Anfang 2009 im U-Club Wuppertal zusammenschlossen, wo sie sich schon mit internationalen Top-Artists wie u.A. Serial Killaz, Aries, Ricky Tuff, David Rodigan, Mad Cobra und King Shiloh die Bühne teilten.

Neben Gigs quer durch das Land und u.A. in Italien und den Niederlanden präsentieren sie ihr energetisches Showcase regelmäßig bei BASSLIEBE Events, insbesondere wenn dort Kollaborationen mit dem Kölner KINGSTONE SOUNDSYSTEM anstehen.

Ob in ihren technisch ausgefeilten Produktionen oder den auf höhstem Level performten DJ-Sets, der unverkennbare Sound von B.I.A ist ein Garant für ausgelassen tanzende Menschen und positive Vibes.

Der Mix aus Drum&Bass, Reggae, Junge und Dancehall verbindet jamaikanische Soundsystem- mit britischer Rave-Kultur und begeistert so Menschen mit den verschiedensten musikalischen Backgrounds.

Seit 2011 erhalten sie regelmäßig Unterstützung vom talentierten MC BROTHER CHARITY, der mit seinen Host- und Singer-Skills am Mic die Sets vollends abrundet.




Die Kölner BASSLIEBE CREW (beim CUBE XII vertreten durch DYNA, FR33M4N, POCOLOCO und MACOBOY) hat sich bei ihrer Gründung Anfang 2010 das Ziel gesetzt, Bassmusik und insbesondere Dubstep in der Region Köln nach ihren Vorstellungen zu pushen.

In den zwei Jahren ihres Bestehens brachten sie neben internationalen Top Stars wie z.B. FLUX PAVILION hauptsächlich Underground Acts und Newcomer auf die Kölner Bühnen.

Die in der Zwischenzeit in ganz Deutschland gebuchten Bassfreunde betreiben zusätzlich das Label „BASSLIEBE RECORDS“, das bis heute stolze 26 Releases hervorgebracht hat.
