From Desolat and Remote Area to Moon Harbour via Düsseldorf – in short, that’s how Arado’s story is best summed up. With the spotlight getting brighter for this talented German export, he's already accrued a world-wide scroll of premium parties at Cocoon and Watergate Germany, Tenax in Italy, Café D’Anvers in Belgium, WMC in Miami, and a legendary closing finale last season at Space in Ibiza. Furthermore, his ongoing appearances for the People Like Us and Bad Boys Club events, are making it hard to believe that the first page of this young success story was only written in 2009.
Arado is genuine proof that almost everything is possible with the right amount of dedication and perseverance. As an undeniably talented producer - his "Uganda Express“ release, signed by Loco Dice for his Desolat label, kick-started his career to international status. Following this acclaimed release came other outstanding productions on labels such as All Inn and Dame Music, which ultimately led to an EP on Matthias Tanzmann’s Moon Harbour label that even took him aboard their booking squad.
Whether in the beginning in partnership with Den Ishu or nowadays in collaboration with Italian Marco Faraone, Arado simply knows a thing or two about rocking the Deep & Tech House Floors worldwide. His raw, driving grooves with a Chicago edge enjoy the support of the international DJ elite, and are responsible for propelling him to the top of the rankings as an electronic music artist. With 2011 in full swing, Arado has already produced top releases on Etruria Beat and Cecille Records, Four:Twenty, as well as remixes.
It’s written in the stars where this German Rheinlander will go, but one thing is for sure: his journey has just begun...
♦ CIHAN MARENO
A rich European heritage and a peerless passion for his art, Cihan Mareno’s status as ‘world citizen’ includes Germany, Belgium and the Netherlands on its path, with Turkish roots also playing their part. Cast-iron DJ credentials alongside a portfolio of production skills have seen the German native perform across northern Europe and beyond to Ibiza, Asia and the USA, while producing a raft of original and remix material that has been given the stamp of approval with support from Richie Hawtin, Marco Carola and Loco Dice. 2014 has seen the formation of the exciting Ella Unique record label and clothing brand as it begins to flourish with an exciting roster of talent on core beliefs based upon, “soul, inspiration and heart”. A strong and successful career already behind him, Cihan Mareno’s work ethic cannot be called into question, as his star continues to shine brightly in the underground dance music arena.
Cihan Mareno is a product of modern multi-cultural Europe. Born in Germany, raised in the Netherlands and now resident in adjoining Belgium; a self proclaimed ‘world citizen’, Mareno’s Turkish roots further account for a distinctive blend of flavours so evident in his DJ and production work that has seen him push the boundaries of his chosen craft.
Overcoming parental concern, it was not long before Cihan’s passion for the music he saw on Dutch television and radio, transformed into a will to succeed in a career littered with an unusually large number of pitfalls. An exceptional ear for musical tonality ensured that the small steps of warm up DJ slots for friends in local Dutch clubs, soon developed into giant strides as Mareno’s technique and skills rose to a point where he began to hold his audiences captivated. A jarring move to Belgium in the late 1990s, aged 17, only served to strengthen his conviction as his maturing tastes saw a move toward the tech house arena. A residency in his adopted Belgian homeland at club “Focus” followed, and a rapidly expanding set of DJ credentials saw gigs in Poland, Turkey, Asia and across mainland Europe, from Poland to the UK. Among the plethora of clubs to provide a platform for Mareno’s performing talents, “Cafe Anvers”, “Peppermill” and “La Rocca” have featured, with further global appearances in Ibiza and the USA cementing a growing reputation. Since the turn of the decade, a production career, simultaneously blossoming adjacent to a demanding DJ schedule, has further seen Cihan Mareno locked in a studio producing and remixing a catalogue of other artists with significant success.
Now fully integrated into the underground dance movement, techno, tech and deep house are the vehicles that drive the Cihan Mareno sound. Over half a century of Beatport production credits currently sit proudly next to his name, and, since the “Secret Sultan” EP first hit Sezer Uysal’s Dark Pleasure imprint in 2010, Kaapro Rec, Soulman Music and Tulipe Records have all captured Mareno’s pristine rhythms and deep grooves, supported by such luminaries as Richie Hawtin, Marco Carola and Loco Dice.
2014’s opening months have shown no let-up in the growing portfolio of skills with the launch of a new record label and clothing brand under the “Ella Unique” banner effortlessly combining the inextricably linked components of music and fashion with Cihan Mareno’s own “sense and style”. With ambition to produce digital and vinyl releases and the creation of a “lifestyle brand” through the Ella Unique name, Mareno’s infectious optimism is based upon the simple premise that, in spite of the economic realities of the modern twenty-first century, inner beliefs are paramount and, “when things are carried out from the heart, they have a habit of working out.” A simple maxim provides a simple set of core beliefs: money is important but not to the detriment of “soul, inspiration and personal relationships”.
A growing roster of talent, a burgeoning fashion brand and a passion for music that has seen an enviable collection of skills forged in the competitive arenas of live appearance and production work. The future is certainly exciting for Cihan Mareno as his star continues to shine brightly in the underground dance music firmament.
