“Beat Tape 2” IS OUT NOW!

Available on Bandcamp and all streaming platforms:
With his Beat Tape 2, Magro once again turns his attention to one of his favorite musical themes – Hip Hop beats.
“Beats have something magical for me. On the one hand, they create a soothing mood through mantra-like repetition, on the other hand, they still have a deeper level full of details that you can only discover when you listen really closely.”

With his music, the Berlin drummer and producer MAGRO creates an unusual fusion of acoustically played jazz and produced HipHop/RnB. His project combines many of his musical influences such as Herbie Hancock, J Dilla and Chris Dave.

After working with numerous artists as a drummer and producer over the years (including Kenny Wesley, J Lamotta and Stimulus), he recently released his first album – “Trippin” – under his own name. It was awarded with the German Jazz Award “Deutscher Jazzpreis” for “Debut Album Of The Year”.

On the album Magro featured some of his favorite musicians and singers – among others Jazz great Kurt Rosenwinkel, the aspiring alternative soul singer Leona Berlin and US rapper TwizzMatic.

With “Trippin” Magro shows his artistic and creative perspective on today’s world. Magro about his music: “I want to build a bridge between catchy music and the deep elements of Jazz.“ Tours and international festival appearances (including Tremplin Jazz Avignon, Jazz Al Popolo Rome, Women in Music Festival Zambia) have taken him around the world. He also co-produced Leona Berlin’s debut album, which was released by Warner Music in 2018.

“(…) Exceptional musician in the young German Jazz and Hip-Hop scene. (…)” – Jazzthing

“(…) a power player with a fine sense (…)“ – DLF National Public Radio Germany

“(…) Magro is one of the most exciting drummers in town (…)” – Tip Berlin
