She plays with expectations and roles: on her albums whales become singers, a thunderstorm is the bass and some fanatically religious shouting gives a dubby beat that extra twist. Left field techno, free jazz, weird hip hop, cutting edge electronica, new and old African dance music, dubstep and less classifiable records all get thrown into the Marcelle blender.
She is an original, skilled mixer, with a very distinctive style of her own, avoiding most dj-cliches and stale rules. As much inspired by avant garde art movements as fluxus and dada, the real life absurdism of Monty Python as by the wild experiments of dub, post-punk and the latest developments in electronic dance music – Marcelle has always been following musical developments very closely and has a keen ear for innovative and ‘new’ sounds. She strongly believes in the excitement and artfulness of creation and development. With her extensive record collection of some 15,000 vinyl and counting, Marcelle has a strong historical knowledge of past and contemporary ‘underground’ music.
