MWX aka Marianne Wilson is a multidisciplinary artist, balancing her time between DJ-ing and design. Influenced by Glasgow’s vibrant and expressive music scene, Marianne developed a fervent interest for synthesisers and the music they can make leading her to avidly collecting italo, disco, new wave, post punk and electro from far flung locations, both nationally and internationally.
Mixing across genres and tempos with a desire to bring life and excitement to the eclectic dance floors are crucial to the dynamic at an MWX party. This approach has been crafted and shaped over years with energy and influence drawn from being exposed to the great music and incredible atmospheres of the Glasgow scene, with encouragement from kindred spirits Optimo Espacio and Magic Waves.
As well as residencies spanning the past 5 years, MWX has played respected parties and events across UK & Europe such as Magic Waves Festival, Sub Club Sound System and BBC Radio 6 Music Festival. In between DJ bookings, Marianne frequently contributes to radio stations such as Intergalactic FM with her monthly Magic Waves slot and now regularly on renowned station NTS.
Italo, new wave, post punk and electro, in styles both old and new, have had the most musical influence on MWX, as she distils the over-riding feeling and energy in her approach to crafting her sets. Music that is both emotive and connective is crucial in the sharing experience MWX likes to bring to minds and bodies on the dance floor.
