Legend has it that, at the end of the nineties, the A&R division of a major label rejected the Dynamite Deluxe Demo saying that it lacked that certain something. A good 20 years, 13 albums, innumerable mixtapes and around a billion legendary features later, Wickeda MC, aka Samy Deluxe, has more than demonstrated that he must have fallen in a pot full of that certain something when he was a child because, with sales of over a million records, Samy Deluxe is now one of Germany’s commercially most successful rappers.
At the beginning of April 2018, Samy Deluxe gave a MTV Unplugged concert on MS Bleichen, a museum ship berthed in the Port of Hamburg. The recording of the show appeared was released as SaMTv Unplugged and went straight to 2nd place on the German album charts.

For the second edition of his exceptional show – ‘SaMTV Unplugged’ – Samy Deluxe is joined at the mic by artists who accompanied him in the two decades of his career. In addition to completely new arrangements of classic songs and pearls never performed live before, the show is also sure to have one or more surprises for hip-hop fans away from the stage.

Simon Below Quartett

Simon Below Quartett

Attention modern-jazz fans! A genuine highlight awaits you at the Nebbiensches Gartenhaus on 5 April: the Simon Below Quartet. Sometimes, their interplay is extroverted and energetic, sometimes melancholy and minimalistic! Simon Below’s compositions leave lots of room for interpretation.  But see and hear for yourself, live and in colour. Admission is free of charge with a Musikmesse Festival ticket!
