Marie Montexier

It is like Marie Montexier digs deep down into the ground to find that golden vein of bassy groove she is hunting for. She often finds it and nails it perfectly: Marie Montexier has a distinctive way of presenting records, turning them into personal trademarks. With fresh ears she looks back in sonic history, picking and matching genres, intertwining the old with the contemporary. Whether tracks are labeled as well- or less well-known is of no significance to her, as long as they contribute to the story she wants to mediate. Born in Germany with French origin, Marie’s preferred format as a DJ is vinyl, a crucial part of why she began DJing and collecting music. Curious about genres and styles, multi-eclectic influences informs her sound. Her sets, mainly based on breakbeat and big on UK flavour, are global melting pots where genres and edges blur; oldskool acid, tribal-scented beats and trippy techno merge here. Marie brings a twisted quirkiness, lightening up a sometimes harsh-sounding corner of the scene. Although new in the industry, Marie Montexier’s hard work has not gone by unnoticed: during her debut year of 2019, she was selected “Newcomer of the Year” by German music insTtuTon Groove Magazin, an honor for any artist. Marie currently holds a residency at internaTonally renowned party Warning, taking place in Berlin. In addition to that she is hosting her radio show Paryìa FM via Berlin‘s Radio HÖR and launched her own label, Paryìa in 2021. Where Marie Montexier, releases the label’s first EP, by the German-Turkish artist a.b.u.3.0.3. Creating a range of slow and fast rhythms while mixing different genres from experimental structures to floor fillers, Paryìa doesn’t only highlight a personal and intimate side of a.b.u.3.0.3.’s work but also Marie’s sense for crossing genre boundaries. Driven by her passion for music Marie Montexier started Paryìa to create a community platform for artists, that she finds inspiring and exciting. Paryìa will release a broad set of many different genres. From dancefloor music to experimental sounds, the label aims to break out of conventions and experiment freely in the universe of electronic music.
