"No way!" (or something along those lines) was our immediate reaction to Marcelus' EP 1. It seemed astounding that the four tracks, released late last year through DJ Deep's Deeply Rooted House, represented French producer Cédric Bros' debut release, such was their fluidity and assuredness. The 25-year-old Paris-based producer followed up a few months later with EP 2 and confirmed what we had first suspected: that Marcelus was definitely on to something. His style to date has sat somewhere near to that of Berghain's more house-inclined residents, although tracks such as "Sulfuric," with its raging acid lines, have proved him unafraid to tear down this shroud of subtlety.
Tasha’s story within electronic music started when she began to promote parties at revered venues such as Plastic People in London. Her first venture was a co-promotion called Medium that was started in 2007 by a trio of like minds, including her good friend Sigha, where they would book multi genre parties and alternative sets at a time when this type of idea was almost unheard of.
It was in Dec 2010 when she decided to go it alone at Plastic People and started her own concept called ‘Neighbourhood’ initially for her friends to come and play and listen to music that they loved, the party quickly evolved into something more. It has now settled as a showcase for cutting edge electronic music, housed at Dalston’s Dance Tunnel.
There have been many plaudits along the way- endorsements have come from Rinse FM in the form of a monthly resident guest slot over a four year period, BBC 1xtra featured mixes, Metalheadz, Glastonbury, Ternesc and of course Jaded to name a few. Her DJ’ing has seen her play at some of the best clubs in the world from London to Australia. Tasha is very much in demand for her ‘music first’ attitude, selection and ability. It is at this point where she has decided to really push herself as an artist and so begins the next phase of her journey.
