A chance meeting in the early 90’s, through Flex boss L Double, led to Marcus Intalex pairing up with producer and engineer ST Files and gave rise to the partnership we know today as MIST. In 1999, the pair’s ground-breaking release ‘How You Make Me Feel’ on 31 Records began a new soulful movement in Drum ‘n’ Bass at a time when the scene was driven by predominantly dark and aggressive sounds. Following up their success with a series of high-profile remixes for MJ Cole, Un:Cut, 4 Hero and Solid State, MIST duly established themselves as leaders in the field and, together with Calibre as Mist:ical, turned heads with their debut LP ‘The Eleventh Hour’ in 2007.
Since 2001 and the set-up of Soul:r label, they’ve released their own music and that of like-minded artists including Calibre, High Contrast, DJ Marky, dBridge, Alix Perez and Lynx & Kemo. Sister label Revolve:r provides exposure for more experimental sounds, with Dutch dubstep don Martyn back in the frame for the latest release 'After Seven', in collaboration with Marcus on the imprint where his career began.
The highly successful Soul:ution residency at London superclub Fabric continues to go from strength-to-strength, with S.P.Y now added to a core that includes Calibre, Marcus and the ever-reliable MC DRS. Marcus’s Fabric Live 35 mix CD highlighted many of the reasons why, proving that music with lasting appeal and a diverse selection are among the key ingredients. The Soul:ution Radio sessions for Red Bull Music Academy give worldwide reach and remain a focal point for the forefront of the Drum ‘n’ Bass scene, keeping Marcus Intalex in constant demand as a DJ across the globe. Regular appearances for the likes of Metalheadz, Ram and Renegade Hardware have helped Marcus to avoid the obvious tags and pigeon-holes like ‘liquid’ and ‘minimal’ and reinforce his versatility as a DJ.
One of Drum ‘n’ Bass, and indeed Electronic Music's true visionaries, Marcus continues to set the pace and champion new artists wherever he travels. In 2012, Marcus has already began the year with a very strong solo single on Soul:r, plus remixes for Lana Del Rey, Blu Mar Ten, Little Dragon and Spearhead Records. We can look forward to more great music from Marcus Intalex and Soul:r this year including an artist LP from long-time cohort MC DRS. Plus of course with the addition of Trevino, Marcus spreads his unique musical vision across tempo's and genres.
