„MRJAH – Kings of Trap“ – LocalSuicide.com, Nov 2013
Marc and Julien aka MRJAH are an up-and-coming DJ and producer duo from Berlin and pioneers in German trap music. They started DJing in summer 2012 and quickly got known for their energetic live performances where they play a mix of newschool hip-hop, trap music and suchlike, as well as exclusive own productions and remixes. Their passion lies in US hip-hop and international trap music, but because of their roots they also love French and German hip-hop, which gives their DJ sets a unique flavor.
Even though they swim against the tide of the techno dominated Berlin club scene they rapidly got popular and get booked regularly for numerous events in Berlins hottest clubs and all over Germany. MRJAH have performed at several festivals like the Splash!Festival, Feel festival and the First we take Berlin festival, a newcomer festival in the context of the Berlin music week. The duo shared the stage with several international acts such as Yellow Claw, Ekali, DJ Shiftee, Tropkillaz, Benga, BoeBoe – just to name a few.

In April 2013 the Duo produced the famous Splash!Mag Cypher n°5 with Megaloh, Chefket, Amewu, Damion Davis and Greeny Tortellini which put their name on the map from the producer perspective. They continued working on some remixes and had appearances on Rap am Mittwoch as exclusive producers.
After having met several rappers, Marc and Julien decided to collaborate with Marvin Game, whos rap style and skills fit their beats perfectly. The joint project led to the MJMG EP which they released in May 2014 on iTunes. Among the media coverage were 16bars.de, BerlinMusic.tv and an interview with Backspin.

They produced a heavy trap remix of the song „Vrai“ by the French 40000 Gang and Booba, which got support from the originals artists.
