Intensity of Sound is Marcel, who grew up near Frankfurt, Germany where he was introduced to music by his parents at an early age to the sounds of the 70s to artists such as Elton John, Billy Joel, ABBA, Genesis, Cat Stevens, etc.., but when one of his friends in 1978 played him the single of The Robots by Kraftwerk he was really captured by the sound. He then focused more on electronic pioneers such as Human League, OMD and Gary Numan. In 1982 he moved to a mostly Rock and Country music oriented Texas, but still his interest in electronic music grew stronger especially when New Order released their single “Blue Monday” in 1983. One year later he started DJing at the age of 15 at parties, but was not until 1988 when he was finally noticed by a club owner in Lubbock, TX and began spinning at “The Planet”. In 1989 he was voted to be one of the TOP 10 most progressive DJs in the US by Details magazine and also was runner up at Razormaids New Beat Contest.

This was also the year when he was introduced to producing by his friend Kay Praag and started working on some demos which unfortunately were never released. When Marcel moved back to Germany in 1991 he continued as a freelance DJ, but also wanted to start making his own tracks so that in 1994 bought a home recording studio. When his old friend Kay split with the members of “Alter Ego” in 1996 he teamed up again with him, but now for good and they soon released their first 12” on Phuture Wax records. Other releases soon followed, but a few years later their label was dissolved and they started into a new foray of electronic music; House and Downbeat. Joined by a female vocalist Kim Bennett their track “Drifting away” was released in 2007 to strong play. Remixes and releases including Lounge Affairs 1 and 2 were released on 3345 Music. Intensity of Sound's music has been used in numerous major films, TV and radio, as well as gracing lounges and dance floors around the world!
