Bio

Return of the Amazons is a Female DJ Team who will take you on an adventure through the tales of rocking electro mixed with tropical, Bollywood, Hip Hop or Pop, as well as video installations and .... simply explosive D.J. Sets combined with live Vocals.
The lights are too bright & the base is too heavy, oversaturation is the wake of call for post feminist, post capitilist additudes to regress to the better past of matriarchic society.
Yes, you have a reason to be afraid! Melissa Logan and Maral Salmassi are the amazons!
Maral Salmassi is a producer, MC and dj who has been bringing audiences to an elevated state of dance scince her early days in Cologne in early 2000's.
Maral is one striking femme. She exudes talent and beauty, combined with a hint of masculinity, giving her a distinct edge in the music she creates and the way she styles herself. Founder of notable techno label, Konsequent Records in ?97 feat. artists like Jay Denham, Cari Lekebush, The Advent or Claude Young and new media label, Art of Perception in ?99, an exclusive limited Soundtrack series in co-operation with Games Workshop UK for the game Warhammer 40.000 by artists like Alter Ego, Jimmy Tenor, Zombie Nation or Andrew Weatherall, Maral's past explorations in music have paved the way for what is her most exciting and diverse label to date, Television Rocks.
Since 2003 Maral works mainly on her own productions as producer and singer and can look back to a number of collaborations with acts such as Siriusmo, T. Raumschmiere, Zombie Nation, Zero Cash, Hey Today, Fukkk Offf or Deichkind. She was touring with Uffie & DJ Feadz of Ed Banger Records, started the Hip Hop DJ Project „Die Boys & Ein Girl“ with two members of the German Band Deichkind and designed a sneeker for Reebok.
