It’s time for the fifth instalment of our “In The City: Focus on” series! This time round we welcome our very good friend Marius Maier, better known simply as Re.You. His success in the global electronic music scene has continued to gather pace as his prolific release schedule, live show and DJ sets at clubs across the world, go from strength to strength. Ever since his first release with us in 2010, Re.You has continued to impress us and with this ‘Focus On’, we ask you to come in closer and check out Re.You for yourself…
First tell us the behind story about your featuring with Forrest..
Forrest. contacted me via email and told me that he was a big fan of mine and asked for a collaboration. I checked his stuff online and I was feeling his voice immediately – so catchy and unique. So I sent him a layout of “Are you For Real”. He recorded this brilliant vocal lines in his studio and sent those back. So actually we didn’t meet yet. I’m very happy about this collaboration – music production 2.0.
What’s your favorite city that you have visited?
There are so many stunning places and it’s hard to choose between them but the best city I’ve visited is Cape Town. I was staying there for 5 weeks in 2011. I fell in love with the city. And of course south african wine tastes amazing. I already planned my next stay for 2014, escaping the german winter.
What’s your typical Re.You food on tour?
I always try to eat local food and try new things where ever I might be. My favorite food I tried abroad was on my trip to South Korea. During the trip I only ate korean barbecue and bibimbap. I became a big fan of korean food.
What is the funniest thing ever happened while touring?
I was traveling with my tourmanager Torsten to play at a festival in Georgia. After flying for 8 hours we landed in Batumi. The promoter of the event told us that it takes about one hour from the airport to get to the location. Actually it took us three hours. And why? Because we couldn’t drive, every 100 meter all kinds of animals blocked the road – pigs, cows, chicken. The most funniest thing was that there were a cow and a bull on the street having sex and we had to wait for a while until they were done. They didn’t even care about us or the car horn. It was really funny … Crazy trip! I need to go back to Georgia soon.
