Next week, on the 3rd of August, VLLA will be transformed in a BAUHAUS Klangfabrik.
We thought it would be nice to deliver you some background info about the DJ’s playing, starting with:
Mark Maenad. Coming from a punk and rock background and having started his own recording studio in 2005, Mark found his way into the electronic scene back in 2007. Soon after discovering the endless potential of digital producing, Mark joined forces with a friend and the live elektro-act Black Oysters was a fact. After playing lots of shows even at Amsterdam Dance Event, Black Oysters got the attention of the French Mr. No of MOTOR fame, who now have a hit record on CLR.
Impressed with Mark’s production skills, Mr. No turned to him to start up a new project: Petsoop. In the short time since their moment of birth in 2010, Petsoop has managed to make a lasting impression on the elektro/techno scene, both with their own smashing songs like 2Bit and Slingshot and with remixes for Wannabeastar and the Whip, among others. Now, after four years of creating smashing climactic
elektro-bangers, Mark has turned towards techno as well.Inspired by the likes such as Brian Sanhaji, Speedy J and Lucy, Mark now focusses on producing a dark, unsettling and concrete style of techno. Adopting the monniker Mark Maenad to distinguish his techno from his elektro productions with Black Oysters, he now is ready to create an ecstatic techno frenzy all over the globe. His live dj-sets fill the crowds with a combination of dancing and drunken intoxication. Be there and be a witness!
A few mixes by Mark Manead’s hand to start you up:
