Widely known for his labels Lumberjacks in Hell and Intimate Friends, German-based DJ and Producer currently living in Amsterdam Marcel Vogel delivered us one hour of powerful house music and more.
How did you made this podcast?
This is a live mix from last weekend at Club Magazine in Lille, hosted by Antoine Wildcake who also recorded the set and send it to me. I am currently playing a residency there that sees me at Club Magazine about once a month.
The mix was done on a Pioneer DJM 900 with 2 CDJ’s and two turntables.
What kind of musical styles can we find into it? What did you wanted to express?
As usual for me I’ve played a mix of Disco, House and Afrobeat. In short: Dancemusic. My aim was to take the audience on a journey and present them different styles of soulful music. The energy of the club demanded a certain level of energy in the music.
A big project in the future you want to talk about?
I have tons of projects going on this year. I have just released two 12″ with my brother Khalil Anthony on Lumberjacks in Hell called “Brown Curls” and “Dance The Blues Away” which have been the result of four years of work. They feature remixes by Nebraska, Julien Dyne and BB Boogie.
I have another 12″ coming on Lumberjacks in May called “If You Like” , also several remixes and about to finish a compilation for BBE. With Lumberjacks in Hell and Intimate Friends it is business as usual with loads of exciting projects like Planty Herbs, Jonna, Alma Negra and more….
