Booking Marcel Heese

Contratar artista / Booking artist

Marcel Heese was born in 1983 in a small town near Berlin. At the tender age of 17, he accidentally encountered electronic dance music for the first time, after hearing sets from Love Parade on the radio. Instantly catching the bug, he started getting deeper into it week by week, soon leaving commercial sounds behind him.

In 2002 he visited Berlin techno mecca – Tresor – for the first time, where he was lucky enough to hear a dj set from Anthony Child aka Surgeon. Harsh, post-industrial techno left a huge impression on him, which fuelled an ongoing interest in the Birmingham sound that still lasts today.

In 2003 Marcel bought his first turntables and almost instantly started spending all his money on vinyl records. Being a diligent and careful listener, he soon discovered deeper sounds and got hooked on a variety of styles: Detroit, Chicago, Dub Techno, Ambient, Italo Disco, Noise, Industrial, Breakcore and Dubstep to name a few.

His first public gigs came in 2007. He quickly gained approval for his sets and as a result in April 2008 Marcel became part of the prestigious Tresor Headquarters team. Besides playing in Germany he has also visited some foreign countries like Spain, Scotland, France, Netherlands, Italy, Finland, Slovenia, Belgium, Slovakia, Croatia, Poland and Lithuania.

His main influences are Underground Resistance, Robert Hood, Jeff Mills, Downwards Records, early Warp Records (Artificial Intelligence), Throbbing Gristle, Whitehouse, Nitzer Ebb, Basic Channel, Plastikman, Sähkö, Planetary Assault Systems, Carl Craig, Derrick May, Drexciya Trax Reords and Italo-Disco.

Marcels current sets are an amalgamation of all those but in spite of such diversity he manages to keep them smooth and congruent.

2013 will see the start of his own record label Finitude which will kick off with a release from PMH (P.E.A.R.L. & Marcel Heese). Together with Mario Berger he has done a remix for Alexander Kowalski that will be out on Damage Music Berlin. Right now he is working on various other projects and collaborations.
