Mazterfly

Mazterfly is a elektroacustic Duo from Berlin and Barcelona. Berni Ramon is operating all sorts of synthesizers, loopstations, samplers and effects while Tim Brosig is concentrating himself to explore the possibilities of his tenor saxophone. By improvising all the way. Their musical style is something between experimental jazz, hip hop, ragga-dub , acid, house, techno, and electrofunk.  Mazterfly´s live is a very organic set. All the music is created at real time with samplers, synths, drum machines and loop stations… And the Saxophone adds the soul… It´s very rare to see Mazterfly playing music with a Laptop (Ableton Live)… Computers are always in the second plan and never ruling the show. This guys are able to play all styles of electronic music adding their personal style and soul in all of them. Their live sets are always different because they are jamming all the time…

Berni Ramon
