Parov Stelar aka Marcus Füreder is a musician who lives and works in Linz, Austria. His style is characterized by the freedom of jazz combined with the groove of house and breakbeat. He performs as a DJ worldwide, where his sample-heavy remixes borrow enough from both modern beats and 1930s jazz as to be appropriate for both the dancefloor or the easy chair. His creative blends of old and new sounds have lead some to describe his music as steampunk or neo-Victorian. Parov Stelar is the head of Etage Noir Recordings.
