A08 Booking Agency Profile

Book A08 for your next corporate event, function, or private party.
The two Berliners, DIRK LEYERS and DJ NOMAD, demonstrated their hard-won musical freedom in a paradoxical way: by using an 808 drum machine to add to and recreate traditional African rhythms. This was after years of delving into the depths of musical genres and pushing the boundaries of blending, mixing and honing rhythm patterns and harmonies from around the globe.
Rather than relying mostly on artist samples, the two produced the majority of the sounds themselves, blending drum machines and synths with analog sound. They raised the bar by transforming their studio endeavor into a full-fledged live performance at one of Berlin's VULKANDANCE nights.
The duo now performs live for smaller and medium-sized venues with a basic laptop and drum machine/synth setup, or a full stage band with drummer Dodo NKishi (of Mouse on Mars), master percussionist Eric Owusu (of the Ebo Taylor Band/Kwashibu Area Band) from Ghana, and a variety of MCs and vocalists..

Frequently Asked Questions about booking A08 to perform.

Many performers, actors, speakers and other talent like A08 in certain cases will consider virtual appearances via live streaming. They perhaps may accept lower fees too. If you are seriously interested in booking A08 or other talent shown on our site, we will research their desire and the specific fee for your live-streaming event or project request.
A08's current work schedule and location in relation to your event's type, date, budget, and locality will play a primary factor in the acceptance of booking A08 for your party. As long as your funding is commensurate with the price range to book A08, CTI will propose your event to the official agency representing A08. After we consult with them, we will provide a personal and accurate quote that includes: final costs, availability, and actual interest in being hired for your specific event or party.
CTI can give you the accurate A08 booking price once we submit your event details to their camp. "How much does it cost to book A08 for an event?" is a frequent question we get. The final A08 booking price is contingent on many variables and the booking fee we may show is based on a range derived from our past experience with what will A08 charge for an event. An example fee to book A08 is in the starting range of $15,000-$24,999. However, any recent popularity change would cause a price fluctuation well beyond this example. Also, their speaking fee might be different than the fee shown for the cost to perform or to just appear. Popularity, career stage, along with current demand will cause fluctuations in their speaking price as well. The final booking price may be more than what is shown, but you should at least have a budget within that range for them to consider an appearance, performance or speaking engagement.
CTI negotiates on behalf of professional event planners and talent buyers for paid appearances! We cannot give out direct contact information of the A08 agent or help distribute fan mail, personal messages, gifts, requests for free appearances, or donations of time. The A08 manager and agent will only work with us if we present them with funded offers for their client to work your event.
There is low probability to book A08 for a party with anything substantially less than the published booking cost price range. We will negotiate with the A08 agent on your behalf if your funding is in place. By not having funding ready then it will more difficult to book A08, because they get many offers to work events that are at or above asking price. It is also important to consider the travel costs when researching the A08 booking fee, as additional expenses like this, as well as an entourage of staff and equipment, are not necessarily built-in to the booking fee range shown. If your budget does not factor that in, then there is no benefit for them to want to be hired. We do not personally speak for A08, but in our experience in booking talent for over 25 years, this is generally the outcome of inadequate funding.
