Mae Marceau is one of the most sensational new talents to emerge from the vibrant Amsterdam techno scene. Despite her DJ career having started only a little while before the corona pandemic, Mae already won the Verknipt DJ contest, was selected to play a set during the ADE DJ marathon at Amsterdams Most Wanted (AMW) radio, and played at big clubs in Amsterdam for well-known concepts, e.g., Vriendjes en Vriendinnetjes, Panama, Club NL, Recycle Lounge Gallery Club, Club Jack. From February until September 2020 Mae was a resident DJ at AMW.FM with her own techno show: Science of Sound. Mae is also host of and resident DJ at MaeDay, a techno concept that saw its highly successful first edition on November 29th at VLLA Amsterdam.
Ever since the corona crisis Mae was invited to play for various livestreams (The Bassment, Recycle Lounge Gallery Club, Club Atelier) and to contribute podcasts for some renowned concepts (e.g., Rock the House, Nachtruis and Scherpe Randjes). Mae currently focuses on producing with a first highlight being the release of her mash-up between the classic Daft Punk – One More Time and the raw, banging techno track Progression UK – Proximity Effect. Since January 2021, Mae writes monthly about her favorite three new techno releases for the large Dutch electronic music platform This Is Our House.
With respect to describing her style as a DJ: Mae is versatile like a veteran and an adventurous tech rookie at the same time. With her contagious energy and every present smile she captivates every audience she gets to take on her musical journey. Mae Marceau flows from Carl Cox’ funkiness into deep Charlotte de Witte-like waters, with a raw edge that reveals clear influences from Amelie Lens. Her background as a scientist and writer makes her a bold and exploring storyteller, unafraid to throw in a surprising, spacey piano-driven house banger for the euphoric momentum.
