Biography

Västerås, Sweden (1992 – present)

Looptroop formed in Västerås, Sweden, 1992. The band consist of three members: / Embee and the lyricists Promoe & Supreme.

They were four members but CosM.I.C has left the group. His appearance on “Fort Europa” (Album) was his last. Read about it on http://www.looptrooprockers.com

Dj Mc Marshall (later to be known as EMBEE) and his classmate Marcie Cee shared a newfound love of music in the early . The rest of the jerks in the school didn’t get it, and the two were both excited about having something that was their own and eager to let some more people in on the secret. One day they would laugh about who in school looked least likely to be able to rap. They soon decided it was definitely that longhaired, loud-mouthed, tight jeans wearing dude in the 8th grade: Mc Mårten (Promoe).

Some months later Dj Mc Marshall and Mc Mårten recorded their first song, and many more were to come. They would team up with two other young guys from their hometown of Västerås, Sweden and eventually take on the name Looptroop that now reigns supreme over nearly every continent. Mellow T (Cosmic) was one of the two guys that joined forces with them. He used to be in another Västerås crew called The Hot Dogs, and before that it was Groovy Soundsystem.

“I remember seeing Cosmic battling some of his old crew members at a highschool disco,” reminisces Promoe. “This was before I knew him, and I have a clear memory of how the kids he was battling were reading their lyrics off big pieces of paper on the stage floor while performing. I was not impressed.”
