Marcus L [Ameniia / Intrepid Skin]DJ / Live - Travels from Seoul, KOR
Born and raised in Seoul, schooled, developed and informed in the UK before decamping to Berlin, Marcus L’s meteoric rise as an influencer within the electronic music scene internationally has seen the Korean artist, entrepreneur and music maker establish himself as a harbinger of cultural importance worldwide. Helping establish Seoul’s Faust club as its resident DJ and label manager, to his work at production house Kammer Radio, Marcus L’s bookings, sets and broadcasts have seen the DJ & producer shape and create a crucial platform for artists and guests alike to experience a futuristic vision of dance music in the new age.
Purveyor of deeper beats, industrial sonics and warehouse rave to ‘90s acid techno inspirations, Marcus L has breached Europe in recent years with sets and appearances at Berghain and Robert Johnson to Red Light Radio in Amsterdam and E1 in London. The subject of a recent Vice documentary on Korea’s clubland struggle in modern times, his trans-continental collaboration with the likes of Berlin’s Herrensauna and connection to supporting artists like Jeff Mills, Avalon Emerson and DVS1 in Asia, has seen him invited to appear at ADE’s 2020 edition as speaker for a panel discussion on Seoul, its electronic music scene, and underground.
With highlighted mixes to be discovered on Possession, Rinse FM France, Dommune and Resident Advisor, Marcus L’s own productions have recently found their way to SPFDJ’s Intrepid Skin label (via the Kimchi Slap EP) aligning his music with the likes of VTSS, Nene Hatun and Hadone. Founding the Ameniia label in 2014, furthermore, he’s created a burgeoning platform for his own music to proliferate while working with a select group of local and anonymous artists alongside commissioning remixes from AnD, Manni Dee, Lauer and Ambivalent to Takaaki Itoh, AWB and Wrong Assessment.
A shrewd selector as much as he is a sub-culturalist, artist and producer, Marcus L connects the wild west of mainland Europe with the neon-lit streets of South Korea and the far east.
