Biography

Was that Chio? Or Cujo? Or something like Cee-U?

NO! Its Q-U-I-O! like Oooh!

Quio, a Berlin based MC, singer, performer wants to be misunderstood
and taken unseriously.

Quio, started MCing in 1997 as MC LOONEY TUNES.
She performed with Drum’ n Bass and HipHop DJs in Berlin Germany and
throughout Europe. In 1998 she met DJ G-SERVE from AUDIOTAXI in WTF
together with DJ CHRISTINE LANG.
They organized parties named ON BASS TRACKS. Until today QUIO is part
of a radio show on Berlin’s former Pirate Radio Station TWEN FM, named

Underground Essentials.

In 1999 Quio met AGF when they both performed in a club. Various
collaborations followed.
In 2003 they started QUIO. 2004 they released the first 12” on AGF

AGF and Quio have put together their different musical heritage, to
come up with some uniquely new combinations, e.g. they mixed Drum&Bass MC

The album was created during the last 2 years while QUIO was being
operated by 2 children aged 1 1Ú2 and 3.
