The Wighnomy Brothers are Robag Wruhme and Monkey Maffia. The two got to know each other in 1989 (supposedly while break dancing) but became the Wighnomy Brothers in 1997. Robag Wruhme spend a lot of the nineties as a chill-out DJ, starting the project Beefcake in 1996 with Volker Kahl.
Wruhme and Maffia cut their DJ skills at the Thüringer Club, and they are currently residents at Club Kassablanca, both in Jena. The pair founded the record label Freude am Tanzen in 1998 with the motto "Stehter Tropfen höhlt den Stein" ('steady drops will drill a hole in stone'). In 2002 they added a sublabel Musik Krause, both of which are distributed by the Cologne based Kompakt stable.
The Wighnomy Brothers' music is self-described as "raving with reason": sometimes cheerful and sometimes dark, together or solo the pair make minimal techno that punts straight for the dancefloor.
Monkey Maffia is also the owner of Fatplastics, a record store in Jena
