Sónar by Night - SonarClub
Dutch DJ Young Marco is one of a singular breed of selector - combining obsessive crate-digging with his own unique taste. Expert in practically any genre you can imagine, he equally at home dropping sets of 70's Ottoman ambient, West Coast American house or mutant beats mixed with jazz psychedelia and rare grooves. It's no surprise then that Marco is in high demand both as a compiler of mix CD's and mixes for the whole spectrum of on line music media. With such dexterity, Marco could conceivably play any of Sónar's stages without any problem, but the slot he will be in charge of in this 2018 edition is particularly well matched to histalent: SonarClub, on Friday night, between Gorillaz and Bonobo. Non-stop dancing guaranteed.
In addition to his magic hands behind the decks, Marco is also remixer and producer, with an album to his credit ("Biology", 2014) and EPs on platforms such as Rush Hour and Dekmantel. He is also part of the balearic ambient trio Gaussian Curve, with Jonny Nash and Gigi Masin, with two wonderful albums published on another Dutch label, Music From Memory. As if that were not enough, he still has time to direct his own record label, Safe Trip, in which he published "Sorry For The Late Reply" -with songs by several artists and genres all of them remixed by himself- and the two volumes of the series "Welcome To Paradise", dedicated to the Italian dream house of the late 80s and early 90s.
