2004 they released the first 12" on AGF Producktion and here is the full length album of the Quio. AGF and Quio have put together their different musical heritage, to come up with some uniquely new combinations, e.g. they mixed Drum&Bass MC lyrics with piano and strings into a melancholy anthem, and hiphop lyrics with experimental beats and a blues guitar. The album was created during the last 2 years while QUIO was being operated by 2 children aged 1 1Ú2 and 3. She likes to explore what is misunderstood and break up what supposedly makes sense. In misunderstandings she sees both the chance to have performer and listener create something new, and to put into question the perception of understanding something the ãwrongÒ or ãrightÒ way. Quio is against seriousness when it is used as a tool of dominance, in the way that seriousness gives weight, means truth, means realness. Never wanting to impose meaning.
She writes against preconceptions and boxing people in, especially women into premade schemes. Quio is a fan of the moment of surprise. She will break unbearable content into amusing snippets of new sense - or break up nonsense and stitch together a new unquestionable world of seriousness with its own set of clichees and idiotic rolemodels. Her backround as MC to all sorts of broken beats like a like DrumnBass, UK Garage, HipHop, Grime etc. has given her the ability to (secretly) keep her lyrics so unreal. In her music she moves from club to pop to toon and likes to oscillate between hiphop, bubblegum and experimental grooves. You get me? Please don«t! Make yourself up, cause I won«t! There is never just one side to QUiO. Quio gets bored pretty quickly, so if she wants to be taken seriously all of a sudden you are allowed to twist her nose. Read more on Last.fm.
