Former member of the group N.A.S.A, he toured the world with their debut album "The Spirit of Apollo" and performed in festivals such as Coachella.
Laudz is a new cat in the game, however even with only 5 years in the business he's worked with the likes of like Snoop Dogg, Dr Dre, as well as Brazil's top hip hop MCs. The two have also scored movies, commercials and tracks for videogames.
Together, the two have created an intense collection of club bangers,that blends Trap and Bass music with Electro,Hip Hop, and Latin Samples in a unique style.
They first got worldwide attention with their underground hit "Mambo", a sure shot in any dance-floor, and their recent collab "Assets" with Yellow Claw (released by Mad Decent) propelled them even further, placing Tropkillaz's footprint in the Trap Movement.
Being recently featured on Run The Trap's Top 10 Trap Duos (tastemaker blog in the scene - run by Complex Music), having their remix of N.A.S.A's "Hide" on the Top 10 iTunes Electronic Charts (US & UK), official remixes for Major Lazer, and with recent support from superstar DJs like Diplo, Flosstradamus, DJ Snake, Steve Aoki, to name a few, Tropkillaz have proved to be heavy-weight contenders.
