(Deeply Rooted – FR)
French producer and DJ Marina Trench’s career is slowly blossoming. Taking a steady, restrained approach the rising talent found her feet musically during her time studying fine art in Bordeaux, immersing herself in the local electronic music scene where she began DJing, and since going on to become an avid vinyl collector and vinyl-only DJ. Relocation to Paris in 2014 saw further engagements with the French scene and her first forays into production began, Trench spent two years working on a selection of tracks without telling anyone or sharing them, for her ‘‘all good things take time’’. Evidently this dedication to her craft has payed off, the inaugural EP was snapped up by the revered Parisian artist DJ Deep for release on his acclaimed Deeply Rooted imprint, a testament to the quality of Trench’s output and an endorsement that marks the beginning of a new chapter in Trench’s career. Kerri Chandler was tapped for remix duties of Marina’s debut and jumped at the opportunity, again attestation that this burgeoning artist is clearly taking steps in the right direction. Local Parisian institution Rex Club has already locked in a date alongside Chandler himself, as well as further bookings at Concrete and Djoon and another Deeply Rooted release is penciled, it’s clear to see things are only just beginning for this hotly tipped act.
