A true vinyl addict, resident DJ in Tresor.Berlin and Unrush founder.
Berlin resident since 2004, Mareena developed her musical career in interaction
with the steady advancement of techno and house in Berlin after moving from
Rostock / East Germany. As a result of her experiences within the diverse musical
channels of Berlin, she has developed her own distinct sound. This
development naturally led to DJ gigs in many notable underground clubs such as
About:Blank, Berghain, Griessmühle and eventually a residency at Tresor. Her
influences range far and wide, including anything from Detroit and Chicago acid to
the more hypnotic take on dub, ambient, and techno. Throughout the years she has
performed extensively both locally and internationally, accomplishing the rare feat of
earning a reputation solely as a DJ and curator.
Acting not only as one of the curators of the New Faces nights as well as her own quarterly Klubnacht at Tresor, Mareena is also the founder of the UNRUSH record label, podcast, interview, event series and record label. Through these multiple mediums, she has continuously crafted new conduits for both established and emerging artists to break down musical barriers and transform the world around them. As a DJ she is a chameleon, carefully stitching together immaculate and immersive sound landscapes for any occasion. Whether she is playing peak time, warm up, or after hour, her sound reveals an intelligent eclecticism fused with bold elements of surprise that exemplify her rich knowledge of electronic music culture.
