Mastermind XS (5 Albums, 29 Tracks)
- thin whistle
- programming : Daniel Stephan
- keyboard : Heiko Petry
Mastermind xs is a two-friends-project (daniel stephan & heiko petry) from saarbrücken (germany).
some years ago they started "mastermind xs", creating tune after tune rooting deep into dub, reggae, electro, drum´n´bass, indie, punk and many other influences. As a result their music is based on a foundation of dub & heavy bass with conscious lyrics. their sound unites different styles which hardly fits into one single genre and is always exploring new spaces.
Mastermind xs are working with ableton live and different instruments, adding sitar, melodica and everything they are able to play with, to form a unique ear-candy-mixture of groovy tunes.
Daniel: guitar, bass, sitar, thin whistle, keyboard, programming, melodica
Heiko: vocals, lyrics, melodica, keyboard
live-performances can vary from a 2-man-setup up to a full band with several additional live-musicians.
