- „Mari van DUS“ meaning of her music cannot ever reduced up to one genre! -
Mari van DUS rather likes to work in the studio and lets her music speak
for itself. A Music that hits where it happens. Sometimes hard on the
floor with intense beats, sometimes with soft tunes for the chill out or
inspiringly with detached spheres. A music reflecting her moods and
preserving her emotions, a music destined to be shared heart to heart.
She would not commit her music productions to a certain style or common
genre. Each track can be unique or become the key note of a whole
session. Freedom and flexibility stand in the first place. That also
applies to her personal mutability. Likewise she does not want to be
limited to a certain image or by any common standards. Keeping her mind
open for the new and for her music is what she wants. In need of a name
or lable for her music productions, she reduced her ambitions and
philosophies to a common denominator: Mari van DUS !
established in 2009 one of her last music projects. In the beginning
there was an affection for film music – such as from Ennio Morricone -
and listening to all kinds of classical music on vinyl records. At the
age of 14 she started taking keyboard lessons and in the following year
she became a member of the school band already. The classical period
marked the start into her ever more expanding musical passion, followed
by HipHop and all kinds of different electronic music. This musical
experiences still have a deep impact on her work.
As she puts
it the fascination for electronic music still lies in the possibilities
of a computer, translating ideas and emotions into simple b(ea)its and
bytes and transforming them into acoustic landscapes.
early years she founded a HipHop band with some friends and gained first
experiences in music production. After the band split up years later,
she continued her solo career. At the same time she started as DJane at
various clubs and discotheques in her hometown Duesseldorf. Different
projects with rappers, a pop production with a female singer/songwriter,
a trance project with DJ Angelo as well as various productions with
other music producers followed. After a total system / HDD crash and
loss of all of her production data she decided to take a time out in
order to concentrate on her individual fulfilment apart from music
After a six years creative break where back since
2009 launched her comeback with her last Project and an easy-going remix
of “Nuits Blanches“ from Blank & Jones.
We are looking forward to what is coming up next. Meanwhile listen up to „Mari van DUS“ !
