In Interview with Marc Romboy Ahead of San Diego Debut at CRSSD After Dark with Maetrik

This coming Saturday, March 2nd, Marc Romboy will be landing in San Diego for the first time to perform at one of CRSSD Festivals’ signature After Dark parties.

Taking place at Spin, the event will see the veteran French producer and DJ join Maceo Plex’s techno alter-ego, Maetrik, for what we believe is the ideal way to close out the first day of this year’s CRSSD Spring edition.

Over the course of the last twenty-plus years, German born DJ, musician and composer Marc Romboy has become synonymous with a soulful electronic music sound that has taken him all over the world. As well as releasing on only the most influential labels, from Innervisions to Ovum and Kompakt to 20:20 Vision, he is also the sole mastermind behind the influential Systematic Recordings label and has been since 2004.

Nowadays an album specialist, 2006 saw him release his debut album, the captivating „Gemini” whilst in 2017 Marc released his first listening long player called „Voyage de la planète“, a pure electronica album with classical music influence and later, in summer 2017 the live recording of his collaboration with the Dortmund Philharmonic Orchestra called „Reconstructing Debussy“, in cooperation with Boiler Room hit the stores.

Despite being a key player for so long, Marc is still as relevant as ever and remains right at the sharp end of electronic music. Proof of that comes in the form of his DJ schedule, which takes him from Fabric to Womb and Berghain to Watergate, as well as to not one but three separate Boiler Room shows. All three proved Marc to be a dexterous performer who never relies on obviousness or gimmicks, instead telling truly musical stories that place dancers right at the heart of the action.

San Diego and CRSSD attendees are in for a treat on Saturday night, and we saw this as the perfect opportunity to catch up with Marc.

Giordanø Enlists Remixes From Mike Parker, Kastil and Kalter Ende for “Axis Of Rotation” EP on Concerns Music

The fact that movement is equivalent to existence and energy is a stringent factor to Giordanø as well as an essential support to lean on for this new release. Although, the Italian producer limits his inspiration to the disproportionate strength exercised by a core to materialize relentlessly the continuous rotatory displacement of a body. Nothing is more penetrating and robust than the magnitude displayed by the most deeper part of an incessant circular flow.
