Makossa & Megablast (AT)

Wildlife Festival

It all began in early 2007, when Makossa & Megablast published their debut album Kunuaka - a fusion of organic Afro-Latin beats mixed with trippy analog synth sounds, forceful basslines, and somewhat exotic vocals by singers from Nigeria and Cuba, among others.

The album generated tremendous responses with the singles appearing in most playlists of global players such as Carl Craig, Laurent Garnier, Gilles Peterson and Bob Sinclair. From there M&M's success carried on: They produced numerous remixes for labels like Compost, Man Rec. and Great Stuff holding licenses for a good two dozen compilations. The artists have been invited to do gigs around the globe touring not only as DJs but taking vocalists and percussionists along with them.

After playing at numerous festivals e.g. WMC Miami, Worldwide Festival, Sonne, Mond & Sterne and about two dozen guest performances in Portugal - including two gargantuan beach parties with Booka Shade and Buraka Som Systema in front of a crowd of 30,000 people -, M&M travelled to Brazil, Mexico, China, Japan, Bali and to the United States. Fans repeatedly compared their live shows to those by Basement Jaxx and Groove Armada.

Their latest 12" Soy Como Soy was growing to a massive underground summer hit in Ibiza, due to heavy support by Luciano, Villalobos, Booka Shade, R Hawtin & many more. After the release of the 5 track EP "Coming Home feat. Hubert Tubbs" - including two remixes by Skwerl and a laid-back "acoustronic" version by Henrik Schwarz.

We kindly thank the Austrian Embassy in Helsinki for their support.
