Mairo Nawaz certainly is that new breed of young, talented and up-and-coming DJ from Amsterdam. Growing up listening to his mother’s reggae and grandmother’s Soul and Jazz music, he started drumming at the age of ten and showed musical talents at an early age. It wasn’t before long or he immersed himself in Hip-Hop and R&B in his teens, but never felt like an old archeologist when he dusted off his family’s old record collections and tried to find a correlation with the modern music of today. He brought this enthusiasm to connect the olden and modern dots with him as a DJ and manages to make everything his own.
While his career as a DJ is still in the springtime of its life, his portfolio certainly isn’t. A residency at Amsterdam’s most notorious club De School and plenty quality shows and festivals in Holland show that Mairo is here to stay. As a member of Patta SoundSystem or sometimes on his own he has played in manty cities like Moscow, London, Gent, Zurichm Berlin, Austin, LA, NYC,Bangkok, Seoul just to name a few.
