Chinese New Year and family reunions are set to be made memorable by Le Méridien Kuala Lumpur this...
Dear party peeps! We dedicate this Sweatbox edition to all things Techno this Saturday, October 14, 2017 . The minimal funky style that squeezed out of the mainstream and made a name for itself through pioneers such as Robert Hood. The funky loops and the hypnotic riffs not only conffer originality to this style of techno, but also versatility - it can be deep or banging, melodic or very stripped down, multi -layered and complex or simple beats, minimal techno can go within the pitch ranges more like any other techno styles and still keep the audience hooked and hynotised.
We are pleased to host the return of Edycted , a KL techno pioneer , alongside our residents- Otherkind and Obadius and a long awaited DJ guest - Marco Lenzi (Molecular Recordings, UK) .
Marco Lenzi is hailing from italy and moved to London in the late 80's bang in the middle of acid house scene. Unlike his Italian fellow musicians, his sound has unique influences from artists who are pioneers in experimentation. This helped him shape a unique style of seamless DJing and his picks are nothing but sensational. As a producer, remixer, DJ and record label owner, Marco has secured himself a well deserved place amongst the techno veterans worldwide and his revered style combined with nearly 3 decades of experience are what we are going to witness this Saturday at The Sweatbox.
It will be a night with identity, style and power of some of the most wonderful techno tracks out there.
We look forward to seeing you on the dancefloor! <3

Marco Lenzi was born in Livorno, Italy and raised in Rome, where as a teenager he got into clubbing, record collecting and mastered his DJ technique. Marco's love of electronic music started over 20 years ago after he inherited some records from his father, an electronic engineer for NASA. His early influences include K. Stokhoussen, Pierre Henry, G. Ligety and other producers from the 1960' s, artists who weren't afraid to experiment with new sounds and techniques. This is something that Marco keeps in line with his own production and DJ work, and with seamless mixing and the originality of his programming he soon developed his own unique style.
Marco moved to London in ‘88 and got into the acid house music scene. He was at the heart of 2 of the best record stores in London – Silverfish and Eukatech. Marco, Nils & Hans Hess and Alex Oppido started the Silverfish Records store on the Charing Cross Road in the heart of London in the early 1990’s. The store was an important part of the growth of the dance scene in the UK, and its reputation was built from the knowledge that they injected into it. After Silverfish, Marco, Nils and Hans opened the infamous Eukatech records in Covent Garden, which provided not only somewhere to listen to the latest tracks but also became known for releasing quality music and winning awards as best independent record label.
Marco’s passion for music led to the birth of Molecular Recordings in 1994, now one of the most respected cutting edge labels in the U.K. On Molecular Marco releases his own material along with many records from artists like Anderson Noise, Chris Liebing, Colin Mc Bean (ex Advent), Danilo Vigorito, Holy Ghost, Inigo Kennedy, Kelly Hand, Oliver Ho and as well the successful anonymous xx series. Marco has also produced more than 50 records on labels including Molecular, Missile, Audio, Eukatech, Noise Music and Primate, just to name a few.
Marco is a techno veteran who has been producing, remixing and playing all over the world for the best part of 2 decades, taking his minimal and funky sound to the masses. The A-Z of countries around the world where Marco has performed: Austria, Bahrain, Belgium, Bosnia, Brazil, Bulgaria, Colombia, Czech Republic, Croatia, Ecuador, France, Germany, Greece, Holland, Hungary, Indonesia, Italy, Japan, Kosovo, Macedonia, Malaysia, Mexico, Philippines, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Russia, Siberia, Singapore, Slovakia, Spain, Switzerland, Turkey, UK, USA and Yugoslavia. In 2008, Marco was voted number 49 in the DJ Magazine Top 100 DJ in the world.
Techno peppers his sets, and he now bravely labels himself a minimalist. "Sometimes with a trend, people are like sheep and follow it," he explains. "But I have been playing and producing minimal techno for a very long time. Minimal techno has been around for nearly 15 years. It's not a new thing." Indeed, it was the original minimal godfather Robert Hood who included Marco's 'Taboo' on his recent Fabric CD - testament to Lenzi's authenticity of touch if ever one was needed.
Marco is now concentrating on the relaunch of his Molecular label as well as spending more time in the studio, after taking a break looking after his 2 daughters. He is busy developing new sounds and styles, producing new releases for Molecular and various other labels, with an album project in the pipeline. Music will always be a part of his life
