In her sets she really prioritises storytelling, engaging in connections with her audience through infectious positivity and jumpy, boundless energy.

Debuting on ASY*S’ iconic FeChrome label, Marhu quickly made waves with her distinctive sound. Interestingly, her background as an international horse rider for many years infuses her music with a unique connection to nature and animals. This connection often manifests in cheeky ways, such as the subtle sound of a horse’s breath at the start of her ‘Spark’ radio show episodes.

Marhu’s discography boasts releases on labels such as Fe Chrome and HE.SHE.THEY where her tracks showcase a fusion of pounding kick drums, intoxicating acid synths, and always have that energy pumping. Collaborating with techno luminary ASY*S on tracks like ‘Hooked,’ Marhu has demonstrated her versatility and innovation as a producer.

For 2024, Marhu’s debut on Electric Ballroom is inspired by Brussels iconic Opera monument “La Monnaie”. It’s a blend of bittersweet melodies and epic orchestral elements, creating a powerful sense of grandeur and drama. On the flip side Marhu serves “Whisper Of Youth”, a modern uptempo Techno affair.

Marhu’s performances have captivated audiences worldwide, with performances at venues and festivals including Extrema Outdoor, Dour Festival, Rex Club, and Love Parade Berlin. Her 2024 gigs at Close Weekend in Oberhausen and I Love Techno in Montpellier underscore her status as one of the ‘ones to watch’ on the rise.

VALENTINØ

Italian DJ and producer VALENTINØ makes his debut on ARTCORE this February, with a killer 2 track original release showcasing his trademark hypnotic melodies and frenetic rhythms. With past releases on Second State, Suara and Materia, he also is the co-founder of Mantra Club in Genoa and runs his own label Overtime Records. You’ll find him playing some of the ARTCORE Showcases that Indira Paganotto announced last month, alongside Indira herself, Chris Liebing, Ben Klock...

From the brooding beginnings of ‘Baba Baby’ it becomes clear that whilst VALENTINØ has sought to embody the ARTCORE aesthetic within the EP title track, he is just as earnest in his commitment to producing fast and unsparing techno. Following a cocktail of deftly layered drums comes the crackling of fireworks to signal take-off for a mercurial rush through a dark lunar journey dispersed by unearthly vocals, frazzling synths, and pummelling bass.

Up next, ‘My Mind’ wastes no time in thundering into gear with bruising intensity and little sympathy for those unprepared. VALENTINØ’s cerebral understanding of his craft allows for a distinct take on quintessential techno as off-kilter drum-breaks and eyebrow raising effects – such as the “surprise” – add oodles of character and dashes of colour to an otherwise shadowy soundscape.

It’s clear why VALENTINØ’ has been selected for the boundary pushing imprint’s next release as looks to further establish her already compelling reputation through ARTCORE’s artist roster.
