Along side his twenty year musical career, Marcus Henriksson follows and propagates a path of spiritual development and healing by means of yoga, meditation and entheogens, and he’s always allowed the brain cleansing and soul soothing effects of this journey to bleed over into his production.
At the same time, Marcus has been living in his own forest studio deep in the woods an hour away from Malmö, so it’s no wonder his sounds are so organic and spiritual.
Marcus has achieved a lot before now, most notably as Minilogue alongside Sebastian Mullaert. Although that project is now dormant after releases on labels like Cocoon, Mule and Wagon Repair, it still gets together to play live. The pair’s other collaborative effort, Son Kite, is still active however, and remains a foremost psychedelic trance (psytrance) act.
Now largely back to working solo, the multi-discipline creator that is Marcus is back on his mission of creating a psychedelic ritual and taking listeners on a journey by using their communal gathering and his music as a vehicle to carry audiences past their own fears and limitations. Marcus believes we can connect to something greater that lies beyond our ordinary life and perception, and if we really let go of everything, even letting go of the sense of "I", we might connect to our true self. Marcus essentially releases his music on his own label Home Records.
This year, he offers Curiosity Music a superb remix of an Alexi Delano’s track, another great name of the Swedish scene, to discover in the EP Lodestar Bang. The release is due on the 3rd of October 2016.
As a DJ, Marcus always taps into his first rave experiences, where he was won over by musical journeys long into the night, but also deep into himself. Because of that, he now likes to build connections with his dancefloor and considers every festival and club he headlines as a sacred and holy experience, which always plays out in the magic of his music as it unfolds through supple dub, heady techno, intensely smooth rhythms and mind altering ideals. Aiming to lock listeners into a trance by whatever means he can, Marcus Henriksson is a modern day musical magician.
