AIAIAI MIX 053
Born in Germany with French origin, Marie’s preferred format as a DJ is vinyl, a crucial part of why she began DJing and collecting music. Curious about genres and styles, multi-eclectic influences informs her sound. Her sets, mainly based on breakbeat and big on UK flavour, are global melting pots where genres and edges blur; oldskool acid, tribal-scented beats and trippy techno merge here. Marie brings a twisted quirkiness, lightening up a sometimes harsh-sounding corner of the scene.
Although new in the industry, Marie Montexier’s hard work has not gone by unnoticed: during her debut year of 2019, she was selected “Newcomer of the Year” by German music institution Groove Magazin, an honor for any artist. Since then, Marie went on to play venues across Europe, including the likes of Berghain and Fabric, and currently holds a residency at internationally renowned party Warning, taking place in Berlin.
Marie Montexiers's own words on the mix:
"This only vinyl mix is a club mix from summer 2021, a time when we had the chance to experience club culture together again. Usually I’m more into breaks, bass and techno but here I bring a lot of power house and acid into the mix. And don't be too sad, winter is here but summer will come again and we will be able to dance together again. Until then, enjoy the time with the music at home. - x"

We created the series to promote and compensate musicians with new weekly mix releases on Soundcloud and Mixcloud - all curated by Benji B.
In an increasingly uncertain business of being a musician DJ or performing artist we wanted to find a way to contribute to supporting the music and nightlife scene.
The effort intends to equip artists to advance their creative and performance opportunities on a global stage, as nightclubs and music venues have largely faced ongoing closures and other restrictions internationally as the COVID-19 pandemic persists.
