Quio, the MC and singer based in Berlin's buzzing club scene, has finished her second album with electronic producer, AGF. She is one of the few female MCs in Germany, and she drops her rhymes over drum'n'bass, garage and dubstep. With Phiu!, she continues to follow her own path. She is already highly acclaimed by critics for her first album, Like Oooh!, released in 2005. On this record, the versatile vocalist shows once again how multi-faceted her styles can be. From the angry rapper to the delicate singer, from the light-hearted MC to the serious speaking artist. Be assured, with Quio's vibrating mixture of hip-hop, club, electronica and pop you will never get bored! She plunges readily in and out of her collected influences: from Ol' Dirty Bastard over the Beastie Boys to Tanya Stevens, Lady Saw and Sovereign, from The Smiths to Phoenix. All these are minced up, recombined and given the unique electronic flavor of Quio's producer, AGF aka Antye Greie. Strong beats support high-impact rap, and deep bass brings out the tangent fragility of Quio's vocal lines. Quio has also invited some prominent guests to support her crazy styles: Nicolette, Edu K, Audiotaxi, Lise, Afia, Kwaku, Nanie, Lempapa, Dr. Data and Al Haca.
