Ahead of this week’s Red Bull Music Academy Tour which touches down in Manchester for three days of shows, talks and events, you can now listen to legendary drum and bass producer Marcus Intalex’s Red Bull Radio Show where the producer explores the musical heritage of Manchester from 808 State to New Order and beyond.
Forward-thinking, energetic, soulful, and heavy on the groove – that’s how Marcus Intalex likes it. A drum‘n’bass DJ with more than 20 years of mileage on his clock, he cut his first track in 1994 and hasn’t looked back since. Based just down the road from Manchester in sunny Burnley, he was bang-in position to dive headfirst into the early 90s dance culture still chaining itself to the doors of the feted (but fated) Hacienda nightclub. A lover of Chicago house and Detroit techno, his flavourful and groovesome drum‘n’bass relates directly to those forms and is often picked up on by strictly 4/4 heads. Part of the production duo MIST with ST Files, he’s racked up plenty of underground hits on his two record labels, Soul:R and Revolver, while releasing jacking house and techno under his Trevino moniker.
