Minilogue, Diva Li, Nigls
In 2016 Marcus Henriksson played at our TEKNEST Festival when the rain was pouring down on the Bird Nest. His sound drove away all the gloom and people danced like maniacs in a waterfall. How that happened was a miracle. Maybe just like he said, “This part of the rave heritage is always with me: having an experience of soul and inner images during dancing.” Now we welcome him back with his colorful, tribal, psychedelic and hypnotic touch.
Marcus Henriksson, aka Minilogue, has dedicated his life to this inner and outer journey for a quarter century. Fascinated by the connection between human beings and music, as well as nature majesty and sincerity, the Swede has distinguished himself with an extra touch of soul and pure talent to connect with the listeners of his DJ sets and productions all over the world since 1993, painting landscapes and drawing images for the audience to travel within. His journeys are not bound by styles. They are authentic electronic dance music connected to nature, lovingly intended to ignite the spirit within.
After having produced 6 albums and over 80 vinyl singles along with other great artists like Sebastian Mullaert, the release of his first solo album “• ElectromagiO •” is now on its way. “This part of the Rave heritage is always with me: having an experience of soul and inner images during dancing. This hypnotism and focus on the inner lead me to a kind of magic and mysticism. In this, I feel and see colors of all kinds and also my own self and uniqueness.”
A quarter-century of experience and spiritual exploration have made Marcus Henriksson a unique artist in the electronic music scene. In perpetual reinvention, without ever denying who he is deep inside, Marcus aims to express his thoughts and his soul through music and let it speak for itself. Any dancer or listener who has shared a moment with his sound art can attest that his DJ sets are authentic journeys that never leave any traveler behind.
So now he’s coming back.
