October 25, 2017

Marcus Füreder began working as a DJ in Austrian nightclubs in the ’90s, which eventually led to production and publishing work around the turn of the century—before he began releasing downtempo electronic songs under the name Plasma. And while that moniker didn’t stick, the musical path did: Under the name Parov Stelar (above, the video for “Everything of My Heart”), the prolific musician has released a host of singles, EPs and LPs—2007’s Shine (stream it below) earned him...
