With their first album they’re finally proving their skills not only on the turntables, but also on the MPC. The 14 self produced tracks feature international renowned artists as Masta Ace or Termanology and Prop Dylan from Sweden but also some of Switzerland’s finest as Nefew’s Polemikk, Manillio or Greis. With lots of love for fine details, the two producers got to create their unique sound over a period of several years. Inspired by the classic east coast esthetic, they’ve chopped unknown sample sources to rearrange those bits and pieces into something completely new. This led to a solid album which unites traditional influences and modern techniques.
Short Bio DJ Wiz
Inspired by national greats as Ker, Fat Daddy, Nerz, Ability and Mo-B, Wiz from Biel/Bienne (Switzerland) started deejaying back in the late 90ies. He released his first mixtape with DJ Romez in 2003. His longtime comrade, Mike Pacaud, has been putting him on the MPC, his favorite production tool up to this day, in that period. Wiz has since then been working with a lot of regional talent as Shork, Lexis, Tony Mac or Miss Lynn.
In 2007 Wiz became part of the nationwide renowned dj-crew DoubleTrouble. His repertoire consists of everything from hard to find underground Hip Hop to contemporary club sounds and funky Disco beats.

Short Bio DJ Ruck P
Born into a musical environment in 1987, Ruck P started playing the piano, guitar and drums as a kid. At the age of 16 he got himself his first pair of turntables and started mixing raw rap, funk and soul tunes. Through a whole lot of b-boy battles and parties he made himself a name as a solid, technically skilled dj with a great sense for any type of crowd.
With his wide knowledge of music, technical skills and a great ear getting into production was a logical next step in the young djs career. After two years of producing for national artists as Bensch, Breitbild, Manillio or Tommy Vercetti Ruck P got in touch with DJ Wiz. In a spontaneous studio-session it quickly became clear that their musical and personal ideas completely matched.
Since that moment, besides of mixing at various clubs, Ruck P has been focusing on the production of his very first album and the ongoing MPC shows with his freshly found partner DJ Wiz.
