The Big Weekend is back for 2016 and is coming at you with a larger than life line-up who’ll take you on a crazy ride the whole weekend. Matze and Johannes – two young men with an affection for hip hop & house who are currently conquering Berlin are your headliners and you can be pretty sure they’re going to bring the noise.
Back in 2006, rap, breakdance and skateboarding were the passions that forged this partnership & this deep connection is reflected in their music, again & again. In 2008 they formed Twomanics & concentrated on authentic and credible hip hop productions for independent artists. Originally from Hanover, they relocated to Berlin for new artistic challenges & they’ve have found their own style: crispy house beats paired with rhythmic soul & hip hop elements. The result is deep, dancefloor-qualified, warm & rough.
Inspiration is found everywhere between subway rides, late night showers & their favourite bars. New ideas are kept manically on every smartphone nearby. This is sound autism at the most advanced stage. Mat.Joe’s love for music & the ambition to improve are the main ingredients that keep the engine running.
Headliner: NICOLAU MARINHO (Brazil)
Hailing from Rio de Janeiro, Nicholau Marino has carved a name for himself worldwide with his intoxicating take on techno and deep house. With several productions snatching the Beatport’s top spots, Nicholau sways between several styles, always seeking the perfect sound for each tribe on the dance floor.
A gifted composer with many interesting collaborations and soundtracks under his belt, Marinho also holds his own in the DJ booth and regularly get booked for Brazil’s top festivals such as Universo Paralello, 303 Art Festival, Soulvision and Samsara.
