Max Powa & Tuffist feat. Kinetical
Max, der zurzeit in Spanien lebt, begann 2004, in verschiedenen Clubs in Österreich, Jungle und Reggae
aufzulegen. Es war immer der Dub und die Tradition der “Selbstähnlichkeit” in jamaikanischer Musik, die
sein Interesse weckte, so dass er schließlich begann seinen eigenen Dub zu kreieren.
Im Jahr 2009 gründete er gemeinsam mit Jungle-Legend Jacky Murda, das Live-laptop-dub-Projekt
“JingBong Ting” und veröffentlichte seine erste Platte auf Argon Record’s White-Label-Serie “WAR”. Von da an
sah man seine Produktionen auf Labels wie “Little Island” und Polens Dubstep-Flaggschiff “Moonshine
Recordings” erscheinen. Mit lyrischer Unterstützung von Top Cat (UK) und Ziggi (NL).
2012 die Gründung von POWA CUTS, gemeinsam mit Lenny Roots. Das Label arbeitet mit grandiosen
Reggae-Sängern und verwandelt dabei klassisches Material in klare, bass-lastige 7 Inch vinyl Cuts!
Since starting out as a resident at New York City’s legendary Konkrete Jungle events in the mid nineties, Tuffist has established himself as an integral part of the international bass music community.
A sought after selector and producer, Tuffist has toured extensively and has released music on various vinyl and digital imprints. His most recent releases have received support from top dj’s around the globe including Kiss Fm’s DJ Hype and Rebel MC (a.k.a Congo Natty).
Tuffist also forms one third of Chopstick Dubplate (alongside Jacky Murda and Aries), a well respected international Ragga-Jungle sound and record label.
In 2013 Tuffist is focussed on branching out, with new collaborations and experimentation with diverse styles. Watch out for new music from Tuffist and Chopstick Dubplate on Highculture, Yard Rock, Powa Cuts, Roots Recordings, Dirty Dubsters, Congo Natty, and of course, Chopstick Dubplate!
Kinetical gained his first onstage-experience as a Jungle and Drum’n’Bass MC. What started as a fun- thing for the one or the other free drink got an addiction soon, and freestyles became written lyrics. This lyrics deal with topics that affect the young artist in his everyday life, and with the microcosm “Reggae” he found a foundation that covers more different moods than most audiences might think. Doubletime bangers on Dubstep, Trap or Drum&Bass productions are to find in his repertoire as well as socially critical tunes in the tradition of Dub- and Roots-Reggae, and even classical Lovesongs, where his singing voice and catchy melodies find their place. In the last few years he released on different labels from the UK to Poland, nonstop teaming up with producers all over the world, still running his soundsystem “Nattyloop HiFi” (w/ B.Ranks) and the dubstep formation “Head Top Miners” (w/ DJ Twang)
