Malente

The German DJ and producer MALENTE has released a total of four albums on Unique Records since the year 2000. The origin of his name „Malente“ is based on the fact that he was born in a small town in northern Germany, which is called Malente. The Malente-sound is not simply ElectroHouse. It is more pumping Electro-House stompers with a rockin’ & funky feel - and this on the basis of that typically positive Malente-Vibe! No doubt it’s easier and better to listen to that than to couch in terms.
