Marco Niemerski, known professionally as Tensnake (born 1975), is a German DJ and producer from Hamburg best known for his 2010 track “Coma Cat“, which appeared on at least 15 compilations that year.
Tensnake emerged in the mid-2000s with a disco-influenced style and rose to critical acclaim by the end of the decade. He is most widely known for his popular 2010 song “Coma Cat“.
Born in Hamburg in 1975, Marco grew up listening to disco, soul, boogie, funk and 80s pop. As he grew older he went through a brief Mod phase before finding and embracing more dancefloor-inspired influences from Larry Levan to Junior Boys Own, Romanthony to Masters of Work.
After starting the Mirau label with friends in 2005, Marco’s first record was “Around The House“. He made his commercial recording debut on the Mirau label with his Restless EP in 2006, which he followed up with I Say Mista in 2007. In addition, he released EPs on the labels Players Paradise (Dust, 2007), Radius Records (Fried Egg, 2007), and Endless Flight (Keep Believin’, 2008).
Tensnake’s first taste of critical acclaim came with the release of “In the End (I Want You to Cry)” EP on the label Running Back in 2009. The EP was voted number one on djhistory.com’s end-of-the-year list, and was the main driver behind Tensnake’s breakthrough success. The release of “Coma Cat” in 2010 was the defining moment of his career to date. The track entered four charts published by the Official Charts Company, including number 85 on the UK Singles Chart. His debut album, Glow, was released in 2014.
Talking about the album’s lead single “58BPM” featuring Fiora, Tensnake commented “I wanted to make a statement with the first single and surprise people.” Glow features collaborations with Fiora, Stuart Price, Jamie Liddell, MNEK, Jeremy Glenn, Gabriel Stebbing (Nightworks) as well as Nile Rodgers.
