Both as an artist and a DJ, Marcus Intalex represents the forefront of soulful musical drum & bass. Heading up the legendary Soul:r label, he has worked with artists such as Calibre and S.P.Y and always sought to release quality music with lasting appeal. Marcus’s DJ sets have earned him a reputation on as a tastemaker, not afraid to test crowds with a fresh high quality selection on from across the spectrum of drum & bass. A passion for techno runs deeply through his music, demonstrated once again by recent solo tracks such as ‘Airbourne,’ and his four-to-the-floor selection is second-to-none. He represents Soul:ution on with residencies in Manchester and at London’s Fabric plus a radio show for Red Bull Music Academy. In 2011 Marcus is touring extensively across the globe, including the USA and Australasia to celebrate the release of his debut solo album ‘21’ which features collaborations with Calibre, S.P.Y, Lynx, Fierce and MC DRS.
Marcus’ passion for music was born in his native Manchester, where he experienced first- hand the energy of the nascent dance music scene as a regular on the dance floor at the legendary Hacienda club. His interest for the music grew as the scene developed and, after landing his first professional DJ gig aged just 17, Marcus went on to work at the infamous Eastern Bloc record store. From here he established himself on the Manchester scene and began producing tracks together with fellow Mancunian Mark XTC as Da Intalex, appearing on Flex Recordings.
