DJ Angel, or Marlene Engel, lives and works in Vienna, where she has been performing since 2008.
Engel is involved in organizing the independent event series BLISS together with Esther Straganz and Rana Farahani. She is active in collaborations such as BLISSSQUAD (with Jessyca R Hauser and Lilly Pfalzer) and has worked with experimental club imprints NAAFI and Janus as well as F23, Kunsthalle Wien, Electric Spring, and Crossing Europe Festival.
An active force in curation and arts organization, Engel has also been a part of the Danube Festival in Krems, the Elevate Festival in Graz, and the Real Deal Festival. Since 2016, she has been working as a curator for Wiener Festwochen, and programs the Hyperreality Festival for Club Culture in Vienna.
As a DJ, Angel’s mixing weaves sputtering, distorted textures into sparse, club-oriented rhythms. Her “Confusion 4 BLISS” mix exhibits an affinity for Janus and PAN-affiliated sounds as well as an enthusiasm for experimentation on the dancefloor.
