MOTOR CITY DRUM ENSEMBLE
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. He was born in 1985 in a small town in rural southern germany and soon moved to Stuttgart, the world’s cradle of the automobile and Germany’s ‘Motor City’ (w. Mercedes, Porsche, Bosch headquarters). Hence, his best known artist moniker ‘MCDE’ obviously is a reference as well to his home-town as to his first love in music, the Soul, Jazz and Techno sounds of Detroit. The ‘Drum Ensemble’ is a link to his collection of classic drum machines, technical backbone of his accomplished and renowned electronic music.
