Marusha live: The Queen of Techno mixes it up for a night in Bangkok

After Dark Magazine - Sunday, February 13, 2005

One of the world’s most famous female DJs will be performing at Concept CM2 of Novotel Bangkok on Siam Square for a one-night only concert on Feb 16.

Germany’s Marusha has been mixing up the best since 1991 and has since played for party dancers across the globe. Now it is Bangkok’s turn. Dubbed as the Queen of Techno, Marusha broadcasts weekly on Berlin’s Rave regularly on German youth television. Having created the platinum hit Somewhere over the Rainbow and gold listed follow-up It Takes Me Away, Marusha released her first of numerous Techno albums Raveland.

After being invited to perform in countless gigs at almost all of Germany’s trend-setting parties in the Techno/House scene and abroad, it was to no surprise that she was soon awarded the VIVA Comet, Best Techno, Echo Award, Best National Female Artist, as well as nominated for MTV’s Best Female Artist Award in front of the Brandenbourg Gate in Berlin.

After a one-year hiatus from the studio, the end of 1995 saw Marusha releasing a new hit single Deep, which rocketed through the charts and reached a remarkable number, 12 spots in a short time. The follow-up singles Unique, Wir and Secret carried her more success in the Techno/House scene.

In 1997, Marusha’s fans were astounded when she released another chart topper Ur Life, which drew on her many experiences she had gathered from people during her tour abroad – all with a meaningful message. More mature musically she now envelopes the sounds of hip hop and new wave into the techno form, creating a new channel sound.

Marusha’s distinctive will and her impulsive behavior have helped her fit comfortably into the position she is in today, with a path of clear musical development mixed with her unmistakable style. Until today, Marusha firmly leads the world as the True Queen of Techno. This is truly a not to be missed event for all party lovers in Bangkok-whether you are into House, Techno or Hip Hop.

The Marusha DJ Set LIVE in Bangkok at Concept CM2 is being held in conjunction with the International Peace Foundation to help raise money to assist the Ban Kroo Noi Children’s home to assist their activities in providing support to many of Thailand’s disadvantaged children.

The International Peace Foundation is an intercultural and Tran disciplinary foundation aiming towards facilitating peace. The foundation doesn’t take sides, but acts as a mediator by creating an independent platform for dialogue where representatives of science, politics, economy, culture, religion, the media and youth can meet, share their viewpoints, listen to each other and find mutual ways of understanding and cooperation.

In this regard, all tickets sold during the Marusha Show at Concept CM2 will be donated by the International Peace Foundation.
