Mastermind xs is a two-friends-project (daniel stephan & heiko petry) from saarbrücken (germany). some years ago they started "mastermind xs", creating tune after tune rooting deep into dub, reggae, electro, drum´n´bass, indie, punk and many other influences.

As a result their music is based on a foundation of dub & heavy bass with conscious lyrics. their sound unites different styles which hardly fits into one single genre and is always exploring new spaces. Mastermind xs are working with ableton live and different instruments, adding sitar, melodica and everything they are able to play with, to form a unique ear-candy-mixture of groovy tunes. Daniel: guitar, bass, sitar, thin whistle, keyboard, programming, melodica Heiko: vocals, lyrics, melodica, keyboard live-performances can vary from a 2-man-setup up to a full band with several additional live-musicians.

2010 saw their first release, the instrumental-ep „one dub many roots“, on the french netlabel libre comme l´air. In ocotober 2011 their first long-player "reset all sytems" was released on angeldustrecords and can be downloaded for free here.

2012 to 2014 mastermind xs have been busy recording and producing their new record „freedom of choice“, which was mastered by celt islam and will again be released in 2014 on libre comme l´air. during this period several tracks appeared on different compilations and podcasts.

collaborations and remixes are always welcome!

Mastermind XS est le projet musical de deux amis (daniel stephan & heiko petry) de Saarbrücken (Allemagne).
Ils font de la musique ensemble depuis 11 ans. Tout a commencé par un groupe appelé "Sheepshooters association" autoproclamé reggae-psycho-rock´n´roll avec plusieurs autres musiciens. Ayant échoué dans la course aux charts, ils se sont retrouvés à jouer une sorte de punk-rock avec deux autres amis dans un groupe du nom de "Bagdad pussies"…

Il y a 2 ans, Daniel & Heiko on finalement démarré "Mastermind XS ", créant morceau après morceau, s'enracinant profondément dans le dub, le reggae, l'electro, la drum'n'bass et bien d'autres influences encore. Ils travaillent avec Ablton Live et différents instruments, ajoutant du sitar, du mélodica et tout ce dont ils arrivent à jouer pour ficeler une mixture exquise et groovy pour les oreilles.
