The Resident in the best club of the world is coming to Cyprus for the first time !
Marcel Fengler’s musical influences present themselves double tracked. His early teenager years are stamped by Hip Hop from crews like NWA, Gang Starr and A Tribe called Quest, who have been his undisputed heroes. Even today, Fengler spins some Hip Hop, but only in private. His interest in electronic music on the other hand has been inspired by continuous experiences in Berlin based techno clubs like E-Werk in the early 90s. The heavy, progressive synth- and acid sounds of this era still wield some magical power on Fengler today.
„As the musical range today is vaster than ever, it is really important to me in which context I’m playing out my records. That’s why I love traditional labels like Planet E, M-Plant and Internal and artists like Ron Trent, Kenny Larkin, Kevin Saunderson, and Chez Damier as much as I like contemporary artists like Sleeeparchive or Lessismore.“
Since the mid 90s, Marcel played at „Club im Park“, a youth club in Fürstenwalde, where he later launched a party series called „SC 93“ together with Marcel Dettmann. In 1997 he started to play at Berlin’s Tresor among other clubs and when Berghain opened in 2004, he became a resident on our big techno floor.
„It is important to me that music tells kind of a story using varied styles from all eras. That’s why I favour to build my sets up, then down again. It has to be varied and it has to snake through the night in waves.“
In 2007 Marcel has started to produce his own music as well. His tracks and remixes are directly influenced by the heavy Techno sound of the Berghain. His complex drum sounds and his generally rough sound design connect seamlessly to his often more than five hour long DJ sets.
