Marie Montexier

It is like Marie Montexier digs deep down into the ground to find that golden vein of bassy groove she is hunting for. She often finds it and nails it perfectly: Marie Montexier has a distinctive way of presenting records, turning them into personal trademarks. With fresh ears she looks back in sonic history, picking and matching genres, intertwining the old with the contemporary. Whether tracks are labeled as well or less well-known is of no significance to her, as long as they contribute to the story she wants to mediate.

Born in Germany with French origin, Marie's preferred format as a DJ is vinyl, a crucial part of why she began DJing and collecting music. Curious about genres and styles, multi-eclectic influences informs her sound. Her sets, mainly based on breakbeat and big on UK flavour, are global melting pots where genres and edges blur; oldskool acid, tribal-scented beats and trippy techno merge here. Marie brings a twisted quirkiness, lighting up a sometimes harsh-sounding corner of the scene.

Although new in the industry, Marie Montexier's hard work has not gone by unnoticed: during her debut year of 2019, she was selected "Newcomer of the Year" by German music institution Groove Magazin, an honor for any artist. Marie currently holds a residency at internationally renowned party Warning, taking place at Berlin's ://About Blank venue. In addition to that she is hosting her monthly radio show Pistache FM via Munich's Radio 80000 and is currently preparing the launch of her own label.
