Sieg Bushido

Crest powers rapper Bushido to victory

Germany - Rap star Bushido savoured the taste of a dual victory at Germany's 17th Echo Awards, held in Berlin last month. Billed as the Teutonic Grammys, the Echos are considered to be one of the most important music prizes in Europe. Rubbing shoulders with international prize-winners such as James Blunt, Linkin Park, 50 Cent and Nelly Furtado, Bushido was voted Best Domestic Live Act and Best Domestic Artist R&B/Hip-Hop for the third time running.

Something of a national icon in Germany by virtue of his controversial lyrics and colourful live presence, Bushido has recently finished a sold-out tour supplied by premier German live production specialists, Complete Audio, Berlin. The rider specified a Martin Audio line array driven by Crest Audio Pro8200 and 9200 amplifiers.
Bushido has been working with Complete Audio for all his recent tours. According to Complete Audio's project manager André Rauhut, the combination of a Crest Audio-driven Martin Audio line array system complete with XTA control was precisely what was required to deliver Bushido's powerful, energetic rap show. "I love the dynamic and crystal clear sound of the Crest Pro200 amps. They offer plenty of headroom for Bushido's muscular groove."
