MARCEL FENGLER (DE) Techno according to Marcel Fengler has nothing to do with being a go-getter or having an alternative career, it is way more than means to an end: it is his definitive and concentrated passion.
In Marcel Fengler´s world, opposites attract. Ambient and electronica are equal parts in his sets that owe as much to the UK´s progressive school of relentless techno as they do to that special `Berghain sound´. A dictum created by music journalists and a description that is a diverging as Berghain´s resident DJs. Being one of them since day one, Fengler made his very own and self-confident contribution to that sound. He really knows his craft. Fengler´s DJ sets are characteristically offensive and dynamic, hard and consistent, but also surprising and emotional. In a realm that is dominated by technology and machines, his bright personality and the human aspect stay visible. You can feel his personal touch.
A similar versatility can also be found in his studio work. Marcel´s fondness for synth pads goes along with gloomy electro, hard and steady-paced techno doesn´t compete with his sense for moods and deepness. His search for different parts that work as a whole is as visible here as it is in his DJ style. Marcel Fengler looks for quality over quantity. Nothing leaves his studio that hasn´t passed this test. Neither artificial shortage of releases nor coyness, this behaviour is essentially Marcel Fengler: passion before purpose.
