Wasserstoff Presents: Waynette & MC ZULU – Bless Up

There was once a time when I would make it a point to link with producers worldwide. Lately I am on my own journey of musical discovery, figuring out instruments and production. Still I recently heard from my friend Christian in Germany with some good news. Berlin Vibes ambassador Christian Ogrinz aka “Wasserstoff” is a favorite collaborator. We sometimes have to use Google Translate, but the message gets across. He introduced Electro Reggae to the Berlin Music Commission a while back.

Currently Wasserstoff is expanding on “Berlin Vibes” bringing several artists, who have performed in Berlin at one point, together on several projects. The Immigrant Visa lyrics apparently struck a chord with Jamaican / Bahamian producer Waynette. I am grateful that they reached out. Hoping you all will like the new stuff I am producing as well 🙂

BLESS UP by WAYNETTE + WASSERSTOFF + MC ZULU

The trans-Atlantic collaboration was conceived as sound branding for the
MW:M21, the most important music conference in Berlin. Waynette came up
with the idea of producing the twelve sound modules as a dance track:
“Let’s release these tunes, and do so on the occasion of the
conference!”

Konzipiert wurde die transatlantische Kollabo als Sound Branding der
MW:M21, wichtigste Musik-Konferenz in Berlin. Die Idee, die 12 Sound
Module als Dance Track auszuproduzieren, hatte Waynette: „Lass uns
diesen Tune veröffentlichen, Release zeitgleich zur Konferenz!“

MC Zulu from Chicago is currently working with Wasserstoff on BERLIN
WIBES for
Wolfpack Entertainment (Universal Music). Martin Burkard, mix/mastering
and co-producer, has brought his classic “Immigrant Visa” into play as a
remix.

MC Zulu aus Chicago arbeitet mit Wasserstoff gerade an BERLIN WIBES für
Wolfpack Entertainment (Universal Music). Martin Burkard, Mix/Mastering

Spiel.

Inspired by the greeting BLESS UP of Marechal Mendy, a Senegalese
colleague of BERLIN WIBES, the graphic artist Henrike Ott (Juice
Magazine, Viva Con Agua) created a messianic cover of a Jesaja in the
colors of this year’s MW:M21, for which she was responsible for all of
the design.

Inspiriert vom Gruß BLESS UP des senegalesischen BERLIN WIBES Kollegen
Marechal Mendy kreierte die Graphic Artist Henrike Ott (Juice Magazine,

komplette Design verantwortet, das messianische Cover einer Jesaja.

Zulu, who calls his sound “Uber Minimal.” With the Jazz pianist

MC ZULU does not make reggae in the traditional sense. His unique blend
of Electro Bass grooves and Caribbean style Dancehall vocals creates a
new form of Dancehall Reggae from the outer reaches of space. Trippy
synths and huge Bass kicks and claps make his music rhythmically
frenetic and exotic. ZULU defines a new style of progressive Electro
Dancehall Riddim.

von Electro Bass Grooves und Caribbean Style Dancehall Vocals erschafft
