Biography

� Mark Angelil (24) - Songwriter, Producer, Rapper
� Tyron (26) - Songwriter, Singer, Rapper

Mark Angelil is lebanese and nothern irish. Tyron is bresilian and spanish from his adoptive parents. They originally met in 1995 as they were both living in the same neighborhood and very soon found they had one passion in common : music. This led them to share their favorite activity : the recording studio.

Before they had even left school they spent most of their time recording hundreds of tracks in Mark's home studio.

During the following years, still collaborating, they developped their carreers respectively recording their own albums and performing on stages all over with Mark's hip hop band : "Hord & Dea".

In addition Mark participates in different music projects producing tracks for Kathleen chaplin, Opee and Stress with whom he sings the song "T�n�bres" which stands out as one of the best tracks in the hip hop charts in 2005. Tyron on the other hand lends his voice for many recording projects and sings live for dozens of artist's in concerts.

It is only in 2006 that Mark and Tyron decide to record an album together which was initially supposed to be a combination of their solo tracks. But from the first session their collaboration turned into an ultra urban mixture of Rap, Soul and R&B. Convinced by the result they decide to create a band : "Dustyboyz".

Dustyboyz is the first french speaking hip hop band to bring rap to both a provocative yet highly entertaining level. The melodies and flow are elaborate and the production is destined to hit the clubs. Though their music is very personal they do not hide being very influenced by hip hop from the south of the united states which is still quite unknown in Europe.

Their first promotional album : "Street Album Vol.1", released in May 2006, with collaborations from Stress, Opee and Driver is already considered a collector's item. Their first album, due to be released beginning of 2007, is certainly one of the most awaited of the moment.

Given their surprising and dynamic energy along with a mature sound full of personality, Dustyboyz brings a freshness still unknown to the french speaking hip hop world which will please not only the true hip hop fans but also groove lovers of all horizons.

C'est dans leur quartier, en 1995, que se sont rencontr�s Mark Angelil, originaire du Liban et de l�Irlande du Nord, et Tyron, d'origine br�silienne et espagnole par ses parents adoptifs. Tr�s vite, Mark et Tyron vont se trouver une passion en commun : la musique, et vont entrer dans leur terrain de jeu favori : le studio d'enregistrement.

Alors qu'ils ne sont pas encore sortis de l'�cole, ils se consacrent presque enti�rement � la musique et enregistrent des centaines de titres dans le home studio de Mark.

Dans les ann�es suivantes, toujours en �troite collaboration, ils d�veloppent leurs carri�res respectives en enregistrant leurs propres disques et en �cumant les sc�nes avec le premier groupe de rap de Mark : "Hord & D�a".

En parall�le, Mark participe � plusieurs projets discographiques en produisant entre autre des titres pour Kathleen Chaplin, pour Opee et pour Stress avec lequel il chante le titre "T�n�bres", qui est l'un des titres marquants des charts hip-hop en 2005. De son c�t�, Tyron pr�te sa voix � divers projets en participant � des enregistrements et des concerts de dizaines d'artistes.

Ce n�est qu�en 2006 que Mark et Tyron d�cident d�enregistrer un disque en commun qui devait d�abord �tre un m�lange de titres solos de chacun. Mais d�s les premi�res sessions de studio, leur collaboration privil�gie une formule ultra urbaine qui m�lange le Rap, la Soul et le R&B. Devant le r�sultat de cette collaboration, ils se rendent tr�s rapidement � l'�vidence et d�cident de cr�er un groupe : "Dustyboyz".

Dustyboyz est ainsi le premier groupe hip-hop francophone � amener sur la sc�ne un rap divertissant et provocateur, enrob� de m�lodies et de flows �labor�s et de productions destin�es aux clubs. Si leur musique leur est propre, ils ne cachent pas une influence majeure du rap venu du sud des Etats-Unis mais encore assez m�connu du grand public en Europe.

Sorti en mai 2006, leur premier disque promotionnel intitul� "Street Album Vol. 1", avec les participations de Stress, Opee et Driver, est d�j� consid�r� comme un collector. Leur premier album, � para�tre d�but 2007, est certainement l'un des plus attendus du moment.

Gr�ce � une �nergie et une dynamique surprenante, ainsi qu�un son mature rempli de personnalit�, Dustyboyz am�ne une fra�cheur encore inconnue dans le paysage du rap francophone, ce qui va plaire non seulement aux afficionados du rap, mais aussi aux amateurs de grooves de tous les horizons.
