Schwindel #2: DJ Marcelle + Mieko Suzuki at ausland / Friday, 25.05.2018
MARCELLE is the most glamourous trickster of all our favorite DJs. Her special power: Deejaying with three record players at a time, which discombobulates everything to a whole new level of harmony and chaos
For those who will want to know the name of the game being played, Marcelle excises the stuffiness of predictable genres to bring the action directly to the dance floor.
What is this punk-riff doing right now in this dancehall-track? And why the fuck is the breakcore-tune sounding way much cooler when Marcelle blends it with rembetiko or polka? What are the boundaries of techno and from which point on the scale can music be considered danceable?
These are the questions we would be asking ourselves – if we weren’t otherwise too busy twirling blissfully across the dance floor, dazed and amazed by the constant twists and turns. Marcelle doesn’t show us a way through the jungle of music, she’s planting a whole new one with each of her style-forming DJ-sets – just another nice mess! It bubbles in the ear like a plunge into a bathtub filled with champagne.
