AFROSCHNITZEL

Beginnings
Afroschnitzel is the sonic brainchild of DJ/producer Mohig and producer-percussionist Ayotheartist.

They first met on an international boarding school in Southern Bohemia, Czech Republic, back in 1996.Quickly they became good friends, embracing having a similarly eclectic taste in music. Soon thereafter starting to create their own sample-based hip hop and left-field beats with an Akai S20 sampler.

Heavily influenced by golden era rap culture as well as the urban UK Jungle movement, their unique combination of live MCing and percussion with Mohig DJing established a
high reputation. Word spread and they were getting frequently booked and garnered attention from a Sony CZ representative.

Present
After years of studying, working in London and Frankfurt, it was 2013 when Ayo and Moritz decided to re-group and form Afroschnitzel. They started to work intensely to incorporate organic sounds and jazz elements as opposed to strictly synthesized music in their productions.

Afroschnitzel released their first two albums independently via Bandcamp and Soundcloud, where they got major responses from all over the globe.

In January 2017 they produced the ‘Womb of Libation’ EP – inspired by Yoruba culture and other Afro vibrations with a Western, European twist. The release generated some underground buzz. Unexpectedly they were signed to the renowned Afro House imprint MoBlack Records. Now they’re played by DJs like Laurent Garnier, MoBlack, Kiko Navarro, Paco Osuna, Rhythm Staircase, Gene Farris, Souldynamic, Phaze Dee, Till von Sein, DJ Pope, Cevin Fisher, to name a few.

On February 17, 2017, their track ‘Spoiler Room’ charted number 1 on the iTunes dance charts in Kenya.

In October 2017, Afroschnitzel performed live at legendary annual MoBlack Base at Amsterdam Dance Event (ADE) alongside David Morales, Aluku Rebels, Mr Silk, Moonrocket, Sunlightsquare, Spellband and many more.

Afroschnitzel are in a constant process of making new underground vibes. Traveling between Vienna and Frankfurt, they meet on weekends to compose music and perform on selected venues.The future holds more releases and an unpredictable performance schedule – simply bright musical prospects for the duo.
