The Noizefield interview. It’s our pleasure to have a free space to tell the readers of Noizefield about Afrojockers & V1r00z. Our name is Lapa & Magio, in real life we are brothers, born and raised in khartoum, Sudan. We are better known since 2004 by our stage name Afrojockers, but before we came up with this Project. We Officially performed for the first time as a duo DJs under the stage name UMT PROJECT in the years (2001-2003).
UMT Project was mainly based on mixing Arabic Electro House and live performance acts which was a unique style in Poland. UMT Project produced two remixes for Amr Diab -“Feek Kull Alkalam” & Samira Said -“Eurobica” (Virus Edit) which was released by Universal Poland. At that time our previous manager contacted DJ Virus for Remaking the track “Eurobica” almost after 14 years since we meet Jakub who is now well known as stage name V1r00z to tell us that (Virus Edit) was made by him…what a small world !! UMT was ranked at the 52 position in “THE DJ LIST” in the House category.
We had the opportunity to perform all around Poland many times with live drum percussion played by Victor Golec one of the oldest and well known drummers in Poland. After UMT Project we started as”Afrojockers” in 2004. We fall in deep in love with Electronic music and since that time we decided to produce more music like Dance, EDM and Future House tracks. Among these tracks we released “Love you anymore”. We are still active and touring around many Clubs and open air festivals in Europe and abroad where we are enjoying a great time with the fans and music clubbers.
Let’s us switch a bit back in time to the year 2001. That was our real integration with the DJ world. Our first ever show took place in August 2001 in Cracow, Poland. We started at the famous Student Club “Pod Jaszczurami”. The club possessed two DVD players and a Mixer, it was almost impossible to mix between track on a DVD players! but some tracks we could mix it in it’s real BPM tempo…
