Slash Dot Dash Podcast 028: Mary Velo
Originally from Toronto, Canada, Mary Velo got involved in music at an early age. It wasn’t till the 80’s where she discovered Depeche Mode and got attracted to deep & moody sounds. In 2007, Mary Velo moved to Berlin where she got strongly influenced in the Deep House & Techno scene.
With a creditable discography which includes releases on labels such as Frozen Border, Semantica, Gynoid Audio & Coincidence, Mary has proven that hard work gets you somewhere.
Mary Velo’s releases have gotten rave reviews from sites & magazines such as Resident Advisor, Groove, Fabric, FACT, Little White Earbuds, De:Bug, Juno, & Boomkat. Her tracks have also been played & charted by Silent Servant, Function, James Ruskin, Ben Sims, Rebekah, Brendon Moeller, Edit Select, Dominik Eulberg, Toby Tobias & ROD, which has brought Mary to the list of new upcoming techno talents. Her track “Detune“ (out on the Frozen Border Minutes In Ice comp) was also featured in Sandwell District’s Fabric 69 mix cd.
Mary Velo has played in highly respected events & clubs such as Berghain, Tresor & Tomorrowland 2013 doing both Live Sets & DJ sets.
Mary’s been on our radar for quite some time now and we’re delighted that she wanted to be part of our podcast family. After the alternative home listening of the last podcast from Pär Grindvik, it’s back to business as usual as Mary puts together a intense excursion into hypnotic rhythms, hard hitting beats and spacial atmospherics to set the toes tapping, head nodding and heart racing.
