Subotage Entertainment is the place you need to go for your musical entertainment. We’ve been providing the freshest sounds of Hip Hop in the new and old millenium, and if there’s one thing we’ve learned, it’s that Hip Hop and music will be around forever…
Subotage Entertainment is based in Germany and was started in the autumn of 1997 when we got in touch with Truth Elemental of Brick Records from Boston who wanted his label artists and friends to perform in Europe the next summer.
Since we knew a lot of people through getting around with our magazine “Subotage” for some years and had been constantly traveling from jam to jam all over Germany and Europe and since we had already thrown a couple of parties of our own, we decided to make it happen. The planned shows for next summer turned into a 4-weeks-long tour going all over Europe which featured Mr. Lif, 7L&Esoteric, Virtuoso, Truth Elemental, DJ Z-Trip, Del the Funky Homosapien and Casual. We did it, learned our lesson and knew the way to go. Since then, we’ve continually grown and have been kicking it with many of the nicest, amongst them Souls of Mischief, Swollen Members, DJ Vadim, Yarah Bravo, Killa Kela, Edo G, Unspoken Heard, J-Live, Masta Ace, Visionaries, Lootpack, Lone Catalysts, Dudley Perkins, Georgia Anne Muldrow, Five Deez, Rasco, Planet Asia, Arsonists, Looptroop, Apani b, Bahamadia, Ill Bill, La Coka Nostra, Zion I, Ra The Rugged Man, Sean P and the Boot Camp Clik, Aloe Blacc, Mayer Hawthorne, Bilal, Jeru The Damaja, Beatnuts, DITC, Black Milk, FranknDank, Fashawn, Phat Kat, Slum Village, Blu, Exile, Chali 2na, DJ Mr Thing, DJ Static, Marc Hype, DJ Rhettmatic, DJ Shortkut and many more…(thank you very much to all of the artists we worked with.. we appreciate everything greatly! Thank you also to everyone who has supported and helped us throughout the years, especially to all the promoters we have worked with together well all this time.. THANKS!)
Our mission is to bring to you a positive vibe, fresh and innovative music and the kind of quality Hip Hop we think Hip Hop needs to progress and thrive and to give something back to the culture that has given us so much. Most of our artists are from outside Germany since we like to kick it internationally and bring people together. Which does not mean that we do not or don’t want to book artists from our own country since we do book our locals and will continue to do so if the music is fresh and the vibe is right.
Beside continuing to serve you the treats in Hip Hop, we also like to branch out into neighboring genres, as long as we find some soul in it and an edge that we like. We’ll see what the future brings!
