Beat Tape Co​​​-​​​Op – Presents The Foundation Producer Series 011 Introducing DJ Nio

DJ Nio a.k.a. Killawea is an international artist from Genova, Italy.

He moved his first steps into Hip Hop Culture as a young teenager, learning how to rap, DJ-ing and doing Graffiti in 1993, while studying classic guitar and has being very curious about World Music; he started to produce his own beats in Y2K with an MPC2000XL.

Since then he has provided beats for dozens of international artists all over the world: he has collaborated with heavyweight female MCs Sa-Roc and Invincible, grammy-nominated artist Kokayi (U.S.A.), Senegal’s top political rappers Keur Gui and PPS, Cuba’s LGBT queens Krudas Cubensi, Syrian-American activist Omar Offendum, Trinidad-Tobago’s reggae vet Metric Man, Italian funk soul brother #1 Bobby Soul, multi-lingual MCs Nomadic Massive from Canada and Ceschi of Fake Four Inc., to name a few.

He founded his rap group – Zero Plastica – in 2001, with which he released 4 records, several mixtapes and has been guest of international Festivals in the U.S., Cuba and Europe, opening for DJ Kool Herc, KRS One, Jean Grae, Oddisee, George Clinton f. Parliament & Funkadelic, Shaggy, Alborosie and more.

Because of Hip Hop, he also travelled and performed in Senegal, Mauritania and Turkey, where he actually lives. One of latest works -“MammaLiTurki!”- is a multimedia project conceived in Istanbul, and includes a Beat Tape series, an EP, a photo book and a short-documentary.

Nio’s a cosmopolitan and, according to him, Hip Hop Culture is “the most powerful weapon that God and the Universe gave to the Youth of the World” and “Music is very practical way to make and build Peace” world wide.

According to his travels and needs, his equipment is composed by: Akai MPC 2000 XL, Sp404Sx, Laptop, Mic, Pt01 Portable, Serato Studio, Zoom H2, Vinyls + voices & sounds of the environment he’s around to. Also musicians are playing a fundamental rule into adding more Soul to Nio’s beats.

Dj Nio – MammaLiTurki EP

My new E.P. -“MammaLiTurki!”- is out on all digital platforms!!! Produced and recorded in Istanbul (Turkey), this is my first solo instrumental E.P. since I started to make beats in Y2K (2000).
I sampled some Turkish records and then I had some musicians adding their incredible touch with local instruments such as bağlama, daff and guitar.

This is the first part of “MammaLiTurki!” multimedia project and anticipates a Beat Tape series, a Photo Book and a documentary coming soon.
