Detroit In Effect
Dj Maaco started as a drummer at age 6 playing for a small church, by age 12 he dropped the sticks and got himself a cardboard and started break dancing! By 14, he was drawing turntables and mixers on his cardboard boxes and pretending as if he was rocking parties. He talked his dad into buying him his very first mixer from Radio Shack, he himself bought a Mcdonald turntable for 35 bucks with the 8 track tape player built in. He rigged it to his mixer and from that he learned how to mix and scratch. AT age 16 Kool Keith(Tucker) showed him an 808, Juno 106, and some other stuff. Keith then pulled out shoeboxes of cassette tapes to let him hear stuff he had been working on. DJ Maaco afterwards bought himself a keyboard and started making music. His first release was in 1992, with a group called “One Nation” and he later hooked up with DJ PDOG and together they formed M.A.P. Records. They put out stuff on their own label as Detroit In Effect. They later hooked up with SERGE of CLONE Records and have since then played numerous times in Europe and the U.K. DJ Maaco has created raw, insistent electro music that moves bodies…. There aren’t many who can resist the rhythms and hooks that he throws down and the attitude he has brought represents that ghetto groove in its purest unfiltered form. With a long history of musical appreciation and creation with influences springing from Gospel through Hip Hop to Techno and Miami Bass, Detroit In Effect bring it like so few can. Irresistible music with enough dirt to satisfy the sleaziest party animal or clarity of tone to inspire the most informed minds.
Credit 00 — live
For more than a decade Alexander Dorn has shaken electronic sounds, stirring shapes and forms as Credit 00 that adhere to few genre tags.
Being sonically socialized through Hip Hop in the 1990s, Graffiti and Breakdance were the first outlets for his creativity, music dominating his daily life since a young age. It was through Hip Hop Culture that he realised that you don’t need a degree or know how to play an instrument to create your own music.
Inspired by the US Ghetto music of the 80s his journey to explore the endless universe of sound had kicked off. Leading him through many phases of musical preferences: Classic Electro, Reggae Dancehall, Italo Disco, Chicago House, Detroit Techno, New Wave or Ghettotech …
After concentrating on numerous styles his mission became to combine different influences in DJing and production. Music without genre and boundaries is also the concept of his label Rat Life Records, since 2014 it has been a platform for his own output and those of like-minded artists.
Having released many EP’s, Compilations and Collaborations on Labels like Uncanny Valley, Chiwax, June, Nation, Bordello A Parigi or Pinkman and especially his 2017 debut Album “Game Over“ show the many voices of an open minded artist.
Even now Credit 00 is always on the look out for the unknown and seeks to challenge the listener and himself rather than fulfill expectations.
