This year I was lucky enough again to play again for our Brasilian friends at the Mareh Festival. The location was stunning in Atins in the North of Brasil with the last 2 hours of the trip on a river boat down what seemed like the Amazon. AMAZING!!!
Atins is also knowN for it’s amazing sand dunes in the national park Lencois Maranhenses, which is basically a desert landscape full of rainwater lakes. They only helped add more joy to the Mareh family as they partied for the whole week long.
I was lucky enough to play twice this year. First, on the opening party where I kicked things off actually and was followed by the lovely Paramida from Berlin. Detroit Swindle and Vermelho then finished us off in style as Paramida and I examined the local situation more closely.
Following that it was my favourite time of the year. Yes you guessed it!!! The Disco Deviance Boat party at Mareh!!! Truly one of the best inventions ever in my humble opinion. The mixture of sunshine, remote location, positive disco vibes and Brasilians is just so infectious and rather mind blowingly good.
Now I have done many before but this one was really special. And to do it alongside my disco brother from NYC JKriv (he of Razor N Tape and escort amongst other things) made it even more memorable. In fact, I cried like a baby at the end of our back to back set. It was just so good!!! And there was so much joy on that boat. Here is a video of us going off at the end. The quality is a bit shit but I think you will get the basic idea…
Anyway for those who couldn’t make it I did a mix for Mareh as usual and you can check it out here:
VIVA MAREH!!! There are not many parties anywhere with the ambition and sense of freedom, love and family as this one. MUITO BOM!!!
