Rank #3: MARC MARZENIT. Be For The Podcast 017
Inspired by a spiritual structure, Marc Marzenit gives us this ethereal, sophisticated and perfectly executed set, exclusive for the 17th episode of Be for the Podcast.
Serene and placid beats, immersed in organic sounds and incandescent vocals, were skillfully selected for a special seven-hour session at the XII century Cathedral La Seu Vella in Lleida as for the very first time in over 800 years of history, electronic pulses flooded the walls of this magnificent building. It is no surprise, therefore, that tickets sold out five days before the event in what was a spectacular success for the Catalan artist.
Marzenit showcases his taste and technique perfectly by connecting house, dub techno, techno and adding some hints of electro into the groove to create a captivating and eclectic DJ mix. Beginning with an almost melancholic tranquility, the set gradually emerges, the sound arrangements building a system that little by little becomes more agile, full of movement, warmth and vital energy, without ever losing the calm and the imperturbability of the original structure.
