Her musical passion is Techno: groovy, impulsive, straight forward and partly influenced by rhythmic Tech-House elements. Thanks to Marleens technical prowess and the creative mastery of Traktor, her sets are renowned for their creativity and unique musical style. She plays with 4 decks all in all with the aid of 2 midi-controllers to enable a creative and individual DJ set. Marleen Polakowski is popular for her rather hard sound that draws the shy dancers out of all corners and thus inspires the audience over and over again. Biography At the early age of 14, Marleen Polakowski discovered her passion for electronic music. In 2004 she started to practice mixing vinyl with her DJ friends and was unstoppable ever since. In 2006 she went to Australia for nearly 2 years to network with international contacts in the electronic music industry and to diversify her musical influences. There, she started playing with CDs and she also began to produce her own music with several software sequencers. In early 2008 she went back to Germany and at 17 started her DJ-career at the legendary “Rheingold” Club (also known as Poison Club) in Duesseldorf. 11th April 2011 she released her first official EP "Confused Flute" at the label "BM Slim" (sublabel of Baile Musik) under her old artist name “Mimi Marleen“. Since early 2013 she is a member of Mike Maaßs agency and label "Black Circus". Up to this date, the young techno-driven babe is active internationally and is booked by the best clubs in Germany (including Nature One, U60311-Frankfurt/Main, Butan Club-Wuppertal, BKI-Hamburg, several Clubs in Berlin and many more) to offer the audience an unique techno-highlight.
