The Dutch DJ and producer doesn't take herself too seriously on her new video and record

DJ Marcelle/Another Nice Mess 'Too Long' from Wrangelfilm on Vimeo.

Dutch DJ and producer DJ Marcelle has been travelling around Europe and further afield for the last 15 years or so, sharing her impressive three-turntable sets and own productions with new audiences every time, and her latest record marks her second with Jahmoni Music following a label debut last year.

Above is a video for the cheekily-titled 'Too Long', blending her eye for delightfully percussive, off-kilter sounds. Taking in all manner of peculiar samples and handclaps across its 12-minute runtime, the track is set to a DIY video exploring, one presumes, the producer's native of The Netherlands.

'Too Long' is one of four tracks from her new record, released by Jahmoni Music on June 9, with the release also offering up alternate takes on the lead track, including one with additional trumpets, a considerably shorter version, and a much shorter and abstract version put together from broken and scratched records in her collection (including a sample of Lee 'Scratch' Perry).

The four tracks were put together in only a few days with the producer choosing to step away from spending too long fiddling with computers and machines in a studio.
