Seemingly weaving through space and time as we pass the unofficial end of summer, our mysterious French contributor Marselan appears out of nowhere to bless us with a new mix just before he disappears back into the fog and returns to Europe. His last session for us at the tail end of 2014 left us with such a strong impression of him that we brought him into the fold without having ever even seen him let alone met in person, and once again his elusive nature only adds to the enigmatic aura behind his distinguished yet cosmic sound.
Citing the rich underground scenes of Paris, Lyon and Montreal as major influences on him, Marselan’s introspective fusion of minimal House and soul searching Techno bridge together effortlessly with the finesse and poise that the French are so revered for. Stripping down the elements and focusing in on the most primal grooves, Marselan meticulously crafts a hypnotic sonic tapestry, letting the tracks breath so that each subtle change highlights the rousing effect of every propulsive aural detail. Long, intricate mixing and flawless track selection with a natural understanding of the needs of the dance floor imply to the true skill of the man behind the moniker, setting Marselan apart from the droves of overhyped “deep” DJ’s that dominate lineups of the most respected club nights and festivals the world over, marking the veiled Frenchman as a real force on the scene to watch.
The name of this mix, “La Brume Du Matin” translates loosely to “Morning Mist”, the perfect visual manifestation of the melancholic late night journey Marselan takes you on, as well as the literal observation of the state of your surroundings when you step outside of the darkened club after having experienced one of his mind altering, body controlling sets first hand. From the communal playas of Burning Man to the exclusive enclaves of Berghain, Marselan’s consciousness expanding sound is one that all connoisseurs of fine House and Techno need to acquaint themselves with.
