Maachew Bentley and Nasty Nigel hail from Queens, New York and started their foray into music as two parts of the seven men rap group, World’s Fair. Fast forward a few years later and they’ve built a community of followers in an entirely different music category care of their electrifying sets and a residency with Lot Radio.
Known as MARAJA, Maachew and Nigel perform as a duo, synchronizing BPMs and sometimes even sporty sunglasses.
From the festival circuit in Europe to the nightclubs of Hong Kong, they’ve developed one of the most pliable sets amongst their peers, bringing grime, house,
baile funk, reggae, and hip hop together to move every sensibility and highlight their global musical palette.
