MALENTE – Full Bio Nov 2010

Around for over a decade German DJ and producer MALENTE has released a total of five albums since the year 1999. The origin of his name „Malente“ is based on the fact that he was born in a small town in northern Germany, which is called Malente (since this question is frequently posed…).

The Music: After his first 12" „Fertig“, Malente´s debut album „The Spirit Of Malente“ (UNIQUE Records) is released in 2000, including the unforgettable „I Sell Marihuana“. Combinig organic 70s funk with electronic sounds.

Four tracks from his second album „No Risk No Funk“ (2002) breezed through to single-releases! The Video of „We Came To Party“ was broadcasted by MTV and by the German music-channel VIVA. Since 2004 Malente got more and more into dirty electro.

Malente releases his works now also MOONBOOTQIUE Records, the label of DJ team Moonbootica. Following the MOSTON & MALENTE single „In The Sky“, Moonbootique over the years release „Washington“ (2004), „Crowdrock/Tight With You“ (2005), „Hot Daddy" (2006) and "Killer Applikation" (2007 wich is being played by Tiga, Chris Lake, Crookers etc).

„Rip It Up“ (2005), Malente's third album, shows his path from organic funk to kranky electro madness. At the End of that year, Malente releases the first 12“ „Like A Freek”. This piece of vinyl immediately enters the top 10 of the DCC and held its place for seven weeks.

2006 Malente presents ManroX: Theme From Manrox“ (Luscious Sounds), and does Moston & Malente „The 2 & Only“ (Splank!), embraced by English mags from I:DJ to Mixmag! Also his first DJ-Mix CD is put out 2006: „Top Of The Clubs Vol.30“ (Kontor).

The 2nd single from the „How Can You Still Stand To Stand Still“ album, again a big seller named „For The Revolution“, is followed by the release of that album in late 2006. With this album Malente is moving from breaks, heading into digital dirty rockin', fidgety electro stuff.

2007 Malente starts off with two 12"es in the top10 of German Club Charts at the same time! „Killer Applikation" (peak #2) and „Open Secret" (also #1 in salescharts). The follow up “tHIS MANROx” backed with “Sp€nd Ur Ca$h” reaches #7 May.

What wasn't mentioned before is that Malente loves remixing. Over the years he reworks tunes by Mason, Moonbootica, Bob Sinclar, Coburn, Turntablerocker and many more. That’s why he put together the CD-Compilation including the best Malente remixes so far plus a brand new Malente DJ-Mix CD. The Double CD “Whow” hit the stores in late October 2007. A Vinyl Album Sampler 12” is released with it and in December Moston & Malente’s “F*cked Up” 12” another single from the album.

2010 starts with MALENTE vs AZZIDO DA BASS - They’re Killing It“ in march. It’s a kranky stomper that is so far out that you'd have to invent a genre for it. It’s Malente’s debut on Steve Aoki’s DIM MAK label and reaches the no.1 spot in German Club Charts.

In May EXPLOITED release MALENTE&DEX follow up Habibi and Indian influenced house stomper. It also climbs to no.1 in German Club Charts.

But producing is not his only passion. Malente lives for his DJ-sets where he’s playing a lot of unreleased material & special edits.

When Malente is playing one of his outstanding DJ-sets, PARTY is to be expected and no puristic bullshit.
