BIO

With his music Berlin-based drummer and producer MAGRO creates an unusual fusion of acoustic Jazz and produced Hip-Hop/RnB. His project combines many of his musical influences such as Herbie Hancock, J Dilla and Chris Dave.

After his first album “Trippin” was released in 2021 and was recently awarded with the “German Jazz Prize” (for “Debut Album of the Year”), Magro is now releasing his follow-up album “II” (pronounced: Two). On the album he features, among others, the up-and-coming RnB singer Leona Berlin and the New York piano virtuoso BIGYUKI.

Over the years, Magro has collaborated with numerous artists as a drummer and producer, including Kenny Wesley, J Lamotta, Stimulus, Yvonne Mwale and Kurt Rosenwinkel. In addition, he has been a producer on many of Leona Berlin’s albums and singles – including “Wrong Lane (featuring Snoop Dogg)“, “Change” and “Leona Berlin.”

Tours and international festival appearances such as Jazzahead, Tremplin Jazz Avignon, Women in Music Festival Zambia and Havana World Music Festival have already taken him around the world.

On Magro’s upcoming album “II” seemingly opposite worlds meet. Spacey Jazz worlds meet pumping Hip Hop beats, live recordings mix with abstract synth productions. For Magro, the album is an “emotional snapshot” of how “music with a Jazz attitude” sounds to him right now.

“II” will be released on Aug. 26 on the Berlin label “XJAZZ! Music.”

“(…) 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
