If people think of Switzerland, they think of green meadows, clear water, snow-covered mountain tops and fresh air. In the world of electronic music they think of soulful house music and a history of great parties and clubs. It is in both these environments that Marco Biagini aka Kellerkind grows up in. In the small and rural town of Solothurn Kellerkind discoveres Chicago house music in the local clubs and becomes fully infected with the virus of house music. 15 years later, Kellerkind has become an irreplaceable figure in the Swiss electronic music scene. When it started, it was fun. Now it is passion. After many nights spent on the dancefloor at Solothurn’s then only good club “Nachtschicht”, Kellerkind starts to DJ, first in the bedroom and soon in the clubs in and around his home town. The warm and soulful music of Chicago and deep house remain his biggest influences when he starts to blend his favorite tracks on the turntables. Very quickly, he starts to play out in all of Switzerland’s big clubs. His clever arrangements of records, but even more so his constantly pulsating and grooving sets become a trademark that can still be heard in his DJ sets today. “It’s all about the groove”, he claims for himself.
