Marek Hemmann (Germany)

a.k.a Marek Hemmann
<p>Marek Hemmann, vintage 1979, knew for a long time even before then that he<br /> wanted to make good music. Following initial dabbling on the guitar, which after<br /> a while was clearly far too limited sonically, he then set-about exploring the<br /> realm of electronic music. This didn’t just come out of the ether, his enthusiasm<br /> sprung from his first visit to a techno-party. The DJ as anti-rock star – there was<br /> definitely something there. The feeling of togetherness of everyone, the light<br /> playing off the music and the effect – that was the indicator. Everything began<br /> in his shared flat – with a sampler&#8230;<a href="#" id="more_link" onclick="$(&quot;bio&quot;).visualEffect(&quot;highlight&quot;); $(&quot;bio&quot;).update(&quot;&lt;p&gt;Marek Hemmann, vintage 1979, knew for a long time even before then that he&lt;br /&gt;\nwanted to make good music. Following initial dabbling on the guitar, which after&lt;br /&gt;\na while was clearly far too limited sonically, he then set-about exploring the&lt;br /&gt;\nrealm of electronic music. This didn\u2019t just come out of the ether, his enthusiasm&lt;br /&gt;\nsprung from his first visit to a techno-party. The DJ as anti-rock star \u2013 there was&lt;br /&gt;\ndefinitely something there. The feeling of togetherness of everyone, the light&lt;br /&gt;\nplaying off the music and the effect \u2013 that was the indicator. Everything began&lt;br /&gt;\nin his shared flat \u2013 with a sampler and synthesizer. The next was a few years of&lt;br /&gt;\nintensive twisting and turning on knobs and controls 24/7. The weekends brought&lt;br /&gt;\ncopious partying and inspiration in the clubs, all the while constantly collecting&lt;br /&gt;\neclectic tones and sounds, archiving and arranging and back again. From a&lt;br /&gt;\nfew samples there now stands an extensive collection, the pool maintained over&lt;br /&gt;\ntime with new joints constantly being added. The way about the electronics is&lt;br /&gt;\nfor him however rather playful, the ambition lying not within being a slave to&lt;br /&gt;\nthe machines but actually results from employing the less-is-more strategy. In&lt;br /&gt;\ntime the natural tendency of every artist had begun to emerge. In 1999 at small&lt;br /&gt;\nparties in Gera and the surrounding area he shared his tonal ideas with others&lt;br /&gt;\nas a live act. Fired on the positive resonance his sets are constantly updated and&lt;br /&gt;\nenhanced. His love for house music can be clearly heard through his actual livesets.&lt;br /&gt;\nDeep bass meets up with vocal fragments; rattle and percussion carry the&lt;br /&gt;\nrhythm \u2013 funky minimal techno with space for other elements. Thus Marek has his&lt;br /&gt;\nown distinct style, which maintains his brand flavour \u2013 open the Powerbook and&lt;br /&gt;\nlet\u2019s get it on\u2026&lt;br /&gt;\nwww.freude-am-tanzen.com&lt;br /&gt;\nwww.marek-hemmann.de&lt;/p&gt;&quot;);; return false;">Show complete bio</a>
