MAGRO is a drummer and producer from Berlin.
With his unusual sound, he creates a fusion of produced HipHop/RnB music and acoustically played jazz.
His project combines many of his musical influences such as Herbie Hancock, J Dilla and Cris Dave. „I want to build a bridge between catchy music and the deep elements of jazz.“
Over the years Magro has worked with numerous artists as a drummer and producer (amongst others Leona Berlin, Stimulus, Kenny Wesley, Etuk Ubong, Yvonne Mwale, The Swag, Sean Haefeli and J. Lamotta). Tours and international festival appearances (including Tremplin Jazz Avignon, Jazz Al Popolo Rome, Women in Music Festival Zambia and many more) have taken him around the world.
His new Beat Tape was released recently. It is made up of relaxed Hip Hop beats that are shaped by Magro’s Jazz roots. The Beat Tape is the beginning of a series of releases that will appear under his name this year. Magro is currently in the final stages of producing his debut album, which will be released soon.
