    Biography

    Marcus Füreder better known by his stage name Parov Stelar is an Austrian producer and DJ who has been active as a musician since 1998.

    Marcus Füreder began his career as many producers do on the late night DJ circuit. At the end of 1990s he was paying his dues on the Austrian club scene whilst slowly moving up line ups. His first EP came in 2001 and was titled 'Shadow Kingdom', a couple more years passed of gigging and working on his production skills before he launched his own label Etage Noir Recordings in 2003.

    A couple of years later his EPs and singles began to get radio play in Austria which helped him break through to the rest of Europe. His electro/swing was viewed as an innovation of the times with the BBC claiming that Parov Stelar was one of 'the most promising producers active in Europe today'.

     

     

    He released a number of albums on his own label in the following years and performed at some of Europe's biggest music events including Zurick Open Air, Rock Werchter and Glastonbury. Often performing with the accompaniment of brass musicians, his swing electro was a big hit and in 2009 he got a commercial break when 'Coco' peaked at #65 in native Austria and #10 in Greece. Since then his chart positions have increased dramatically, 'The Princess' charted within the top 10 of Austria, Switzerland and Greece.

    In 2013 he was a big winner at the Amadeus Austrian Music Awards picking up the accolades of Best Live Act, Best Electronic Act, Best Album. His notoriety has earned him the opportunity to work with the likes of Lady Gaga and Lana Del Rey, and he has now sold over 250,000 albums worldwide.

  • Wu-Tang vs. The Beatles

    All this is probably The Grey Album’s fault. Since then, DJ’s (or just plain whomever) have been flooding the internet with more often than not middling mashups of hip hop and rock. There have been successes: Blue Eyes Meets Bed Stuy is pretty damn good, recommended if you haven’t sought it out. Jaydiohead came around, put Minty Fresh Beats on the map, and was pretty good as well. There was another Radiohead hip hop mashup, don’t recall that one as well, there’s been so many of these things, who knows anymore.

  • Gogol Bordello bassist Thomas 'Tommy T' Gobena is a man of the world

    It's breakfast time at Dukem, the popular Ethiopian restaurant on U Street NW, but Thomas "Tommy T" Gobena orders lunch. In a city of red-eyed, Cinnabon-scarfing frequent fliers, he might be the most jet-lagged man in Washington.

    Gobena lives in Alexandria but will spend most of this new year in the air and on the road, playing bass for Gogol Bordello, a merry band of self-branded "Gypsy punks" scheduled to hit about 200 stages across the globe in 2010. Days earlier, Gobena was wowing a crowd of 20,000 in Mexico City. In a few days, he'll be at it again in St. Petersburg, Russia.

  • Tenor Saw : A dancehall tenor

    Passed away nearly 20 years ago and even if his career was short, Tenor Saw impressed reggae history and specially the dancehall music.

It's with this song that he met his first success in Jamaica. But it was nothing compared with what was going to happen…
