Motor City Drum Ensemble is a unique kind of ensemble in that it consists of just one man : Simultaneously retro and futuristic German House pioneer Danilo Plessow. Being influenced by jazz, soul, funk, hip hop and house, he is revered for his chameleonic composition skills, production finesse and remix mastery. Danilo compiled his brilliant DJ Kicks LP on !K7 in 2011, which also spawned the acclaimed MCDE single ʻL.O.V.E.ʼ Many highly estimated podcasts (for RA/XLR8R/Juno Plus/FACTmag. a.o.) prove his impressive selection and exquisite mixing skills.
Always proving his emotional and melodic side without forgetting how to make people dance, heʼs equally accomplished as a DJ. His technical ability and vast and diverse musical taste has taken him all over the globe to showcase his turntable skills playing the premier venues and festivals on all continents. Today MCDE is renowned for his eclectic taste in music and his technical wizardry in producing, both of which have made him a globally profiled DJ and producer, who has been re-defining house music over the last years.
