Tresor – Unrush – Muzan Editions
Trends come and go, but some music is simply timeless. This is where Mareena’s focus as an artist lies. Having developed her musical career in synchronicity with the steady advancement of techno and house after growing up in the GDR where techno emerged in the '90s, she has since established her own distinct sensibility for musical narrative.
This evolution led naturally to DJ gigs in many notable venues and organizations such as Berghain, De School, Tangent Gallery in Detroit during Movement Festival, Faust Seoul, Gegen Berlin, The Bunker New York, Monasterio Moscow, IfZ, and most prominently her residency at Tresor since 2012.
As a DJ she is a chameleon, carefully stitching together immaculate and immersive sounds that will quickly turn any discerning dance floor into a sweaty rave. Her sound reveals an intelligent eclecticism fused with bold elements of surprise that exemplify her rich knowledge of electronic music culture and history. Dynamic techno sets in clubs and lush ambient sets in churches create a balance within Mareena's musical sphere.
However, her career encompasses much more than just DJing. In the last few years, she has also emerged as an adept producer, with releases on Muzan Editions, Tresor, UKW49b as well her own label, Unrush. This quickly led to international recognition, with her collaborative album with JakoJako Atlas Der Gedanken receiving Album of the Day accolades on RA. These releases display the refinement of her production skills, where her dedication to modular synthesis has transpired into a palpable passion for discovering new sonic pathways.
Unrush has grown too. With over 70 mixes and 4 compilations released to date, the series has expanded to include a broad family of artists and shows no signs of slowing down. With a focus on humanitarian aid, the label aims to also make social change while enabling listeners to be more present. All of these achievements have established Mareena as a powerful artistic and curatorial voice within the underground electronic music scene.
