Berlin Techno City? True! But these two guys give it a special flavour by hooking up with some original soldiers of bashment culture! Berlin-edged beats in combination with the powerful heavy toasting by the likes of London Jungle MC-Legend MC Navigator (“Ruffneck”) , Warrior Queen or the voice of living legend Lee Scratch Perry make a resistless accomplishment!
PROFIT is the brand new project of Berlin’s producer-duo Martin Hewing and Florian Achatzy, who have been dropping numerous drum & bass releases on international labels under the name of Dub Tao. UK’s Knowledge Magazine [June ’07] had a point when they reported “these Berlin whizz kids are going from strength to strength“, since their records are constantly caned by DJ Superstars such as LTJ Bukem, Fabio or Jazzanova. As Live-Act and DJs they have been lighting up dancefloors and airwaves globally, be it in Berlins renowned clubs like the Watergate or the WMF or at the Love Parade in Mexico City in front of a staggering backdrop.
With PROFIT they are heading for the next chapter, consciously ignoring boundaries of musical genres. In the studio and as a soundsystem they have the support of heavy-weight MC’s: MC Navigator, who together with the Freestylers gave us various classics such as “Ruffneck”, Warrior Queen, known for her collaborations with Skream and The Bug, Dr. Ring Ding, whose energetic live performance turned him into Germans Reggae- and Dancehall darling and “the Upsetter” himself Lee Scratch Perry.
