Marcel Fengler's musical influences present themselves double tracked. His early teenager years are stamped by HipHop from crews like NWA, Gang Starr and A Tribe called Quest, who have been his undisputed heroes. Even today, Fengler spins some HipHop, but only in private. His interest in electronic music on the other hand has been inspired by continuous experiences in Berlin based techno clubs like E-Werk in the early 90s. The heavy, progressive synth- and acid sounds of this era still wield some magical power on Fengler today. „As the musical range today is vaster than ever, it is really important to me in which context I’m playing out my records. That’s why I love traditional labels like Planet E, M-Plant and Internal and artists like Ron Trent, Kenny Larkin, Kevin Saunderson, and Chez Damier as much as I like omtemporary artists like Sleeparchive or Lessismore.“ Since the mid 90s, Marcel played at „Club im Park“, a youth club in Fürstenwalde, where he later launched a party series called „SC 93“ together with Marcel Dettmann. In 1997 he started to play at Berlin’s Tresor among other clubs and when Berghain openend in 2004, he became a resident on big techno floor. In 2007 he released his first own record on Ostgut-Ton (09). „It is important to me that music tells kind of a story using varied styles from all eras. That’s why I favour to build my sets up, then down again. It has to be varied and it has to snake through the night in waves.“ Read more on Last.fm.
