Marc Romboy vs Stephan Bodzin
In 1992 – whilst studying human medicine – fascinated by the early Techno and House records on R&S, Plus 8 and Underground Resistance, Romboy decided to begin producing himself. Along with his friend Klaus Derichs, he bought the legendary Akai sampler S1000, the Roland TB 303 bass line machine and a mixing desk: “We spent our very last money and produced some freaky underground records for labels like See Saw, Adam & Eve and Rising High. When the musical success began I stopped studying.”
After launching his weekly radio show “Systematic Sessions” in 2009 which is broadcasted by almost twenty different radio stations all over the world and a temporarely move to New York with his family, Marc and his mate Stephan Bodzin released their long awaited album “Luna” including all their songs and more than 20 remixes of the highly profiled artists like Moritz von Oswald, Robag Wruhme, Martin Buttrich, Roman Fluegel and many more. The release of the long player was accompanied by a two months lasting and unique live tour all over the globe…
Stephan Bodzin has been a hugely influential figure within the global techno scene for years. The reason the German has endured where many had fallen by the wayside is because of his devotion to authenticity. “Without it, everything would appear to be nothing more than a hollow shell,” says the son of an experimental musician who is now a revered talent in his own right.
2015 will see this Bremen mastermind release his second full length, “Powers of Ten”, as well as a new single on DJ Tennis’ and Tale of Us’ taste making label Life & Death. The album is another magical piece of work that focuses on melody and rhythm, on fat bass and vivid sound design and is a truly captivating journey though the mind, music, body and soul of one of dance music’s truly modern greats. It is just the latest chapter in what has been an exhilarating musical journey in the capable and creative hands of Stephan Bodzin.
Marc Romboy and Stephan Bodzin will provide the Techno Stage at Dance Valley Festival 2015 with the best beats the Germans have to offer! Make sure you check out the rest of the line-up too, which includes artists like Fedde Le Grand, Blasterjaxx and Oliver$.
