We’ve welcomed a couple new additions to our agency this month, both of which we are very excited to have on board with us. So much so that we wanted to take the opportunity to properly introduce these electronic music moguls who both hail from one of Berlin’s most reputable music labels: Get Physical Music. We are thrilled to have Derek Marin and Andrea Ljekaj on board, we have found that their journeys through the industry have been nothing short of brilliant and innovative, we are proud to be showcasing their talent at Jane Music Agency.
Derek Marin is no newcomer to the scene, he’s been moving mountains in the electronic music industry for over 23 years now and has a number of big milestones to show for it. Over the years Marin has developed and polished his music which has led him to making big strides and standing out in the electronic music industry. To date Marin runs three music labels which are known across the world and motivate thousands of aspiring DJs and producers to find and perfect their sound and be part of these institutional music houses. You may of heard of his own industry indents: Faucet Music & Like Button, Subtrak Records and the Berlin Techno collective Disclaimer. Outside of managing his own music labels Marin is also associated with a number of other influential and renowned labels such as Plastic City, Superfreg, Get Physical, Little Helpers, Endless, Nervous, Toolroom and My Favorite Freaks. And if he’s not found heading one of his labels then you’ll be able to catch him performing his signature acid and minimal techno sounds around the globe under one of his many aliases like Platonik, Autopilot, Modest D, Mycrof & is in the group PLOY. One of the things we find most alluring with Marin is that most people will think they’ve never heard of him but later find out that they’ve got a number of tracks by him but just so happens to be under a different name. He is undoubtedly one of the hardest working people in the underground electronic music industry, his past is nothing but motivational.
Andrea Ljekaj may have a few less years in the industry under his belt but this hasn’t stopped him from building an already impressive track record in the underground electronic music scene. His signature style which leans more towards minimal techno and tech house has earned him a prodigious and even an award-winning reputation. His music which can be described as powerful and euphoric caught the attention of reputable music establishments such as Get Physical, Einmusika, Save Us and Selador quite early on in his career which hasn’t stopped progressing since then. This underground music phenomenon can now be seen on stages across the globe at some of the industry’s biggest festivals like Sonus, Dimensions and Labyrinth. Not to mention that if he’s not playing his own quality productions then they are often heard across international frequencies on global music platforms such as BBC Radio, Boiler Room, at Burning Man or during sets by underground music heavyweights such as Joris Voorn, Laurent Garnier, Maceo Plex, Dubfire and many more. His passion for producing and designing music is undeniable, it is what has kept him motivated and given him continuous streams of inspiration for his striking music.
We hope that their music and stories will inspire you as much as they have at our agency. They have recorded exclusive sets for our listeners so don’t forget to check out our Soundcloud page so you can see for yourself what these guys are really
