Marco Resmann (Upon.You Berlin) Biography
Berlin. The mid 90s. The home and the heart of the electronic music scene with its countless legal and not-exactly-legal venues, a flourishing scene embracing all kinds of genres from Techno to House and beyond, with tapes on circulation, regular radio shows and an annual climax named Loveparade.
Infected by and brought up on this wide ranged diet of electronic music the city had to offer Marco Resmann started to work on what should become his profession of the future. Led by his neverending love for House Music he stepped up on stage behind the decks, eventually started to promote parties and built his Audiogain studio where he continuously honed and refined his production skills on analogue gear.
This steady work paid off in form of a first release on Martin Landsky’s Intim Recordings under his former artist alias Phage, often used in collaborational work with Daniel Dreier for a series of conjunctional, highly acclaimed 12“es. Around this time in the mid- noughties Marco Resmann also formed an alliance with Tassilo Ippenberger and Thomas Benedix under the name of Pan-Pot, which soon became known as a triumvirate production force redefining the trippier side of Minimal Techno.
Apart from these projects, it was another fruitful collaboration that was meant to last. After meeting and immediately clicking with Norman Weber at a millennium NYE event in Italy they started to DJ together on a regular basis for years before they joined forces in the studio, establishing their project Luna City Express as a main project of Moon Harbour Recordings with numerous EP’s, Remixes and a widely praised album named Hello From Planet Earth released under the labels roof.
Recognized for a full decade as one of the stalwart projects when it comes to tasteful, open minded House Music from Germany the two Berlin-based producers have recently set up their own label Luna City Lab in 2014 – a vinyl first platform for their unique musical vision they also still share with their dedicated audience in venues all over the place.
Backed by this experience and an excellent reputation a DJ Marco Resmann joined the world famous Berlin-based Watergate club as a resident in 2006 and has played countless nights in this hallowed space ever since as well as graced the tenth anniversary volume of the Watergate Mix-CD series with a flawless tour de force ride through his personal club favorites and anthems in February 2012 – a mix that can be considered as a milestone in his remarkable career so far.
As a solo producer at the controls this career also includes remixes and releases on praised labels like Watergate Records, Mobilee, Upon.You and, lately, Poker Flat Recordings.
But there’s even more to Marco Resmann than being the loved DJ playing out to devoted, dedicated crowds all over the world and the critically acclaimed producer who fully masters his craft, serving a unique fusion of House and Techno with a recognizable twist to his followers with every single release and remix.
As co-founder of the Berlin-based Upon.You Records which, with a back catalogue of
nearly 100 releases on the main imprint and several subsidiaries, without a doubt developed into one of the main global players in House and TechHouse since 2007, Marco Resmann has given proof of his talent for spotting talent and the ability to invest consistent, dedicated, straight-up work in the house he and his labelmates built.
With an exceeding artist roster Upon.You and the associated agency Upon You Bookings have become a major part of the international club scene and are vital, ambitious and thriving as ever, looking into a bright future to come.
