Marco Scherer aka Datacult // Villa Violet // Meller
Biography Marco Scherer is not a name that's commonly associated with the new breed of electronica and dance producers that've been circulating for the last couple of years - he's no novice when it comes to production and highly honed skill within the studio. In fact, the truth couldn't be any further away from the idea of a newcomer to the vast world of electronic music production. Besides keeping himself busy with sound-design jobs for Loopmasters, Digidesign, ReFX, Tone2 and fully exercising his creative, technical muscles, he also produces beats and bars as Datacult and Meller, spanning from staunch techno through to his own brand of 'trippy trance' released through a plethora of labels such as John Fleming's Joof Recordings, Per-Vurt and Shabulized. More of his creative vibes can be experienced when listening to Villa Violet which Martin Eyerer's label Kling Klong is happy to feature. But he doesn't limit his efforts to production and djaying only. One does sometimes wonder how deep this creative mine of his is, but since 2010 readers of the German Beat magazine get regularly funneled more of his energy through regular articles about sound-design and workshops.
