Max Doblhoff & Idd Aziz presenting MAMA JO the new Single from their upcoming Album AFRICALA in 2016.
The relationship to East Africa/Kenya started when he first played a Live DJ set in the so called Club Sikiliza at Village Market Nairobi in 2003. Max was jaming with some well known local musicians like Idd Aziz on Percussions & the voice of Mercy Myra supported by Funky George on Sax (Austria) and Stoney the Flute (Austria) he had two legendary bookings in Nairobi 2003 & 2004. The musical connection never stoped and after releasing DJEMAA feat. IDD AZIZ in 2014 Max and Idd finished their Studio productions for their upcoming Releases in 2016.
Analogue samples, coming from live recorded instruments like Kalimba, Percussions, Bass, Drums & Guitars are used whereas digital elements are reduced giving the production character & flair by the warm analogue sound.
Enjoy this musical journey to Electro Acoustic Ethno & Afro Sounds !

Makadem has become one of Kenya’s most prominent contemporary artists. Simply because he is one of a kind, and yet speaks the universal language of good music. His personality is the one that can transmit messages to small and large crowds alike. Pure energy!
MGanga MKuu by Makadem was originally created & recorded as a part of a Santuri East African workshop during the Sondeka Festival 2014, and released in its original form on Highlife World Series – Kenya in June 2015.
This track has been made available to members of the Santuri network in order to remix and reinterpret, developing and supporting a collaborative East African platform for artists, producers and DJs.
A version of it found its way on to the digital release of the Highlife package 2015, but these two separate mixes courtesy of Max Doblhoff and Clubcruise Music provide a totally different spin on this bonafide Classic.
Doblhoff(DJ, Producer & Musician) himself is a regular visitor to Kenya and has collaborated with many musicians from the Nairobi scene. Here, along with partner Wiesflecker, his Step by Step Remix aims his sights squarely at the Club with a driving groove that highlights Makadem’s powerful vocals high in the Mix.
Elsewhere the two sublime Banda Westfalica (German Percussion Group) mixes provide a more acoustic take, with a shuffling groove and amazing Marimba Sounds.
Marrakech 2010, prophet Mohammed’s birthday on the famous ‘DJemaa el Fna’ court, extraordinary musicians gather from all over the country to honour the prophet – in the midst of it Max Doblhoff, who inspired by the music starts to translate the various sounds into his own musical world. DJEMAA was born. Max Doblhoff mixes his beats starting of with an original soundscape of the legendary market place in Marrakech, changing into mystical ‘Oud’ sounds, followed by Darbuka, inspiring Flutes by Georg Barnert and a beautiful energetic voice of Idd Aziz Kunya. It is a fusion of classical instruments such as bass and flute with synthesizer sounds and electric beats – a trademark of Max Doblhoff – which rounds off this unique production full of traditional Gnawa Rhythms.

the well known “Oba La Vem Ela”-Re-Rub, released on Jazz Records & many more. His remix version of „Tanz Schatzi“ is a charming interplay between Brazil, Dub & Latin grooves.

May we proudly announce this special instrumental version of “Tanz Schatzi” by the student percussion ensemble Banda Westfalica from the german city of Bünde in North-Rhine-Westphalia. A
group of very talented musicians that play exclusively acoustically and are already known for their interpretation of various electronic songs with their percussion instruments. Here they created a completely new understanding of “Tanz Schatzi” – minimalistic with a glimps of
innocence which goes a long with the beat of their traditional live played instruments. A great arrangement & a must have for world music lovers.
