MAREENA (Tresor, Unrush / Berlin)
As one of the curators of the New Faces nights as well as the founder of the UNRUSH podcast, event series and record label, Mareena has continuously crafted new conduits for both established and emerging artists to break down musical barriers and transform the world around them. As a DJ she is a chameleon, carefully stitching together immaculate and immersive sounds that will quickly turn any discerning dance floor into a sweaty rave. Whether she is playing peak time, warm-up, or after hour, her sound reveals an intelligent eclecticism fused with bold elements of surprise that exemplify her rich knowledge of electronic music culture and history. Dynamic techno sets in clubs and lush ambient sets in churches create a balance within Mareena's musical sphere, and one can immediately sense that she feels at home no matter the setting.
