As a record release party for her new double LP on the excellent Klangbad label, Dutchwoman DJ Marcelle will deliver another of her unpredicatable sets at Bei Roy this saturday.
Dubbed the female John Peel, whatever names are dropped without a doubt Marcelle is one of the few truly eclectic DJs out there as the new mix Meets Further Soulmates at Faust Studio Deejay Laboratory goes to show.
Surprise, adventure, entertainment and education: Four key words often used for describing Dutch DJ Marcelle/Another Nice Mess who releases her third double vinyl album since 2008 on the German Klangbad label. Using live (and in the studio) three turntables, on this new album Marcelle takes her mix talents to higher heights. She is as much, or even more of, a musician as she is a dj.

By putting different styles of music in a different context, she changes the way we experience those individual styles. She fuses musical styles like no other, making it seem like they always belonged together and making the audience believe they are listening to one track instead of three played simultaneously!
For Marcelle the musical form is in a way irrelevant, as long as some urgency is there and a need for not standing still. Therefore sometimes bookers, journalists and audience members initially get confused because Marcelle is hard to pigeonhole. A fitting description would be ‘avant garde ethno bass’ – but you decide.
