Body & Soul
Body&soul was formed in 2004 by Robert Stefan and Michael Willer. Both have been involved with music from birth on in many different projects from rock-bands to classic orchestra, from djing to event management. In the year 1998, whilst Robert was working to establish a local dnb-scene as a dj and promoter, Michael went to the audio-engineering college in Vienna.
Both knew each other for a long time before but it was drumandbass music that made them team up and eventually start working on music together. Drumandbass arena put on a huge rmx contest with the mighty EZ-rollerz. Body&Soul haven’t had any proper releases so far so they decided to participate. Cutting a long story short, after several months the 300.000 different visitors of dnb-arena have stated that the b&s rmx was the best out of over 1000 that were sent in from all over the world. The EZ-rollerz themselves were well into the rmx and short after they released the remake of “roadrunner” on their well respected “Intercom Recordings” lable.
This has drawn a lot of attention on body&soul and they kept working to evolve their sound as they felt it really lacked in many technical aspects. In the summer of 2004 Body & Soul did a collaboration with DJ Genr8 from Alliance, an upcoming producer from miami. A track called “the passage” was made and it didn´t take long until people like “bad company”, “dieselboy”, “dylan” amongst others knocked on their door, beeing seriously into the tune.
The D&B duo Body & Soul have been dedicated to the dance floor-smashing beats their audience loves them for since their introduction into the scene many years ago.
For Body & Soul though the ability to keep crossing musical (and mental) borders, experimenting with different musical genres and throwing in new sounds to create something just a little different from your usual drum and bass anthem is essential. The outfit has become known for their versatile and unprecedented sounds that wow ravers all over the globe and attract new audiences everywhere they go.
