We are back, with Marco Faraone!
Marco Faraone is a prolific and versatile producer whose incendiary live sets have earned him the attention of all the right people.
Hailing from Tuscany, Italy, Faraone grew up immersed in music – his father was a DJ in the 80s, working for a local radio station, whilst his grandfather was also a folk singer and a musician. Surrounded by these diverse musical influences, Marco started playing around with hiphop records from the likes of Run DMC and Tupac, graduating into drum n bass when he wanted something a little “freakier”. His talent didn’t go unnoticed for long, as Faraone landed his first gig at just 14 years old.
As his style developed, Marco became fascinated with the 90s house championed by Masters At Work and Todd Terry, whilst admiring Laurent Garnier for his ability to effortlessly play diverse sets.
He’s since developed a worldwide reputation as an extremely skilled producer, with releases ranging from the warm analogue house grooves of his most recent Moon Harbour EP ‘Next Level’, to the relentless, hypnotic techno of his latest EP for Rekids and On Edge Society. It’s thanks to this versatility that Faraone has released on so many respected and different labels in a relatively short period of time – Drumcode, Rekids, Ovum, Be As One, Sci+Tec, Desolat, All inn records, Holic Trax, Get Physical and Truesoul have all provided a home for Faraone’s productions.
