non-mainstream club music, highly functional
DJ Marcelle is one of the most seasoned and widely respected DJ’s in Europe. She’s a true pioneer with her ‘free’, brave and creative way of mixing. Besides this she has always been following the latest developments in forward-thinking music and has therefore a keen ear for exciting new sounds. For the label Klangbad, owned by Hans-Joachim Irmler of Krautrock band Faust, she has released four double vinyl albums, mainly dedicated to and comprising her three turntable composition/mix talents.
The Munich based label JAHMONI is proud to release her first 2-track Club EP. In The Wrong Direction echoes what she does on stage: it’s non-mainstream club music, and it’s highly functional. Marcelle is on a life-long quest of proving that most music in club culture is quite boring but that’s justified as having to be so because of functionality and audience expectation, while she claims that this is not true, it’s just a lack of intelligence, courage and creativity on the part of most DJ’s.
According to DJ Marcelle, you can make the most boring crowd dance to the most awkward music recording, it all depends on attitude, mixtalents and in which context you present it. And it’s in this spirit, that the two tracks on this 10inch are both provocative and unusual, but at the same real club smashers – the stuff you play at prime time in your set. Genre-wise we’re speaking NL tribal techno, post dubstep, broken beats, glitch, eclecticism, but really, we’re talking about attitude, roughness, freedom and – a raving dancefloor.
