Parov Stelar, Austria’s sensational electronic artist is bringing his signature sounds to the Rebel Toronto!
Parov Stelar (birth name Marcus Füreder) was born in (Linz, Austria) in 1974 and is a composer, producer and DJ. His musical style is based on a combination of jazz, house (an electronic music style that began in Chicago in the early 80, characterized by repetitive 4/4 beats, rhythms mainly provided by drum machines, off-beat hi hat cymbals, and synthesized basslines), electro (a genre of electronic music and early hip hop directly influenced by the use of the Roland TR-808 drum machines, and funk), and breakbeat (a genre that grew out of the isolated parts of classic funk and soul records that break dancers would dance to). He’s widely regarded as one of the pioneers of electro swing; a genre that combines jazz and vintage/modern swing with electronic dance music to create a dance floor focused sound that’s more readily accessible to the modern ear but that also retains the feeling of live brass and the energetic excitement of the early swing recordings. He’s had a stellar career with 13 studio albums, 1 live album, 21 extended plays, 11 singles (one of which has been certified Platinum in Italy), and his music has been featured in many TV commercials and in the video game Forza Horizon 3.
