Calibre celebrates the life and career of friend & close collaborator Marcus Intalex. Joining him will be Marcus’ long time production partner & Soul:r mainstay ST Files, plus Manchester D&B icon Tasha.
Inspirational, humble, irreplaceable – these are the sentiments that appear again and again in the tributes made across the years from the global drum and bass underground to salute Manchester’s quiet low-end godfather, Marcus Intalex.
The artist’s passing was met with a deep, nostalgic realisation at just how far his influence as a DJ, producer and mentor extends. That’s not to mention everyone’s ongoing love of his dry Northern wit and no-nonsense wisdom. Five years on, his Soul:r imprint and influence on the community still stays strong.
Listen To Marcus Intalex Tell His Story
In an interview for Resident Advisor’s Exchange podcast, recorded just 10 months before his untimely passing, Marcus Intalex candidly discussed his take on dance music, on how rave changed football hooligans in the north, the dangers of DJing drum & bass in ’90s Manchester where calls for a rewind were literally accompanied by blasts from a sawn-off shotgun, plus his challenges producing modern techno under his Tavino alias.
