Artist Info

U-BAHN

U-BAHNPowered by Audioscrobbler™There are at least two artists with the name U-Bahn.

1. Maltese Dance Duo

Mark Grima and Matthew Agius, had both been studying classical music, and their musical knowledge encouraged them to set up a home studio and record their ideas on tape. By the year 2000 at the age of 18, they succeed to attract the attention of top club DJs with a number of demos, and in the same year they received an award for 'Best New Talent' at the Club DJ awards. 2001 saw their first hit on the air waves with the song 'Closer' which was then followed with other releases such as 'Evening Falls' featuring Enya’s angelic voice.



.:2002:.

In 2002 U-Bahn released their debut album ‘Freedom’ - a collection of songs including hits like 'Rocket High', 'You Are Mine', 'The Only Way' and 'Closer'. With the success of these tracks came along a large number of requests to perform live in clubs, parties, award nights and also at a baroque theatre – the Manoel Theatre. Their performances, upshot in an attraction to clubbing enthusiasts who enjoyed live music and placed U-Bahn along side top international names.



.:2003 - 2004:.

During 2003 - 2004 Matthew and Mark started off their solo career reaching out different styles of dance music. This helped them experiment with new fresh sounds and styles. In 2004 Mark worked together with DJ Ruby on the award winning remix 'Love Me or Hate Me - Ira Losco'.

The end of 2004, Matthew and Mark returned back on stage for a massive one hour show for 04/05 NYE concert titled 'U-Bahn LIVE Classics Edition' alongside Jan Johnston and other international names entertaining 3000 clubbers in Gozo.



.:2005 - 2006:.

In 2005 U-Bahn were joined by a new member Keith, who accompanied the band during live performances and was the voice behind the hit single 'Prove Yourself'.

2006 saw another collaboration with DJ Ruby, this time 'Accident Prone - Ira Losco'. Mark also made his way with 'Sway' on the 'Pure Malta' compilation released on the Holland based record label Fektive.

U-Bahn ended 2006 with a surprise remix of 'Sampei', the original popular manga cartoon melody. This track broke local Maltese records hitting the number 1 position in local Top 40 radio charts.



.:2007 - 2008:.

Following the success of 'Sampei' , Matthew and Mark toured clubs and headlined major festivals. Summer 2007 saw the release of 'Dirty Electro' which was influenced by the underground sound that took Europe by storm - electronic sounds with rhythmic drum beats all wrapped up with a fat bassline.

2008 was a relatively quite year for U-Bahn as they upgraded their studio.



.:2009:.

While Matthew moved off to Ireland, Mark got back in shape and back in the studio. A new song to be released in summer takes U-Bahn back to its roots, melodic sequences and enchanting vocals. 'Beautiful Eyes' is to be released in June.



.:Live setup and production:.

Described as the island’s foremost live dance act, U-Bahn's large LIVE equipment setup varies from: sequencers, samplers, synthesizers and several FX modules all in total full control. Infact for U-Bahn working in the studio is one thing, but going fully live without using any pre-recorded tracks is truly a challenge.

U-Bahn are constantly working on new material, from House to Progressive, breaks and chill out tracks.
