Biography[edit]

Weiller was born in Rome, Italy, into a family with three brothers and one sister. The entire family moved back to Atlanta, Georgia. While growing up in Atlanta, he took to playing several instruments, including guitar, bass, and drums. Although an avid punk rock fan, he gained a deep interest in electronic music in college and began producing Drum N' Bass around 1999. He joined the drum and bass trio Evol Intent in 2000 in his hometown of Atlanta. Weiller has also produced trap, moombahton, and dubstep under the moniker Bro Safari starting in 2008. He formulated the producer name by throwing around "Broseph" and "rastafari" combining it to for Bro Safari, the current name he tours under.

Weiller formed the group Minus Music with Matthew Kelly, producing under the name. Matthew Kelly eventually received a Doctorate in Middle Eastern Studies, and lived in Jerusalem.

He currently lives in Austin, Texas with his wife Heather, a/k/a Robotpoko, and their son Elliot Weiller. Heather is a stay at home mom who devotes her life to her family, the fans and arts and crafts.
