Marco Bailey is somewhat considered an icon when it comes to techno and the dance music industry as a whole. It starts with a beat, and for Marco that as in the late 80’s. In 2014 he celebrated 25 years of Marco Bailey, a true achievement for someone who is an ambassador for the scene as well as an amazing DJ and producer.
He grew up in Belgium, and it all started out when he went to a small local club in his nearby city. At this point, he knew little and didn’t have any musical heroes, but soon released that he would rather be behind the decks than on the dance floor.
After teaching himself his early days in the 90’s were all about hard work and dedication. Playing gigs for small fees or sometimes even for free, this was how Marco learnt the trade and got to his feet, created a small local following playing everything from rock, funk and hip-hop. In 1994 he found house and techno, where he started releasing on some small labels, under “Marco Bailey”.
His break came in 2000 with his first EP on Carl Cox’s Intec imprint with “Play It Back”. Over the next couple of years he worked on his own imprint, launching MB Elektronics, with the first release in 2002 with “Caprioska”. The releases came flowing over the next few years, which saw the release of his critically acclaimed “Rube Boy” album back in 2004, soon followed by “Dragon Man” LP on John Digweed’s Bedrock in 2011.
Since 2000, he has had numerous releases on Intec as well as Bedrock who have supported his techno productions from the beginning. Not forgetting labels including Sleaze and Drumcode in recent years, as well as his very own MB Elektronics, with now over 150 releases to date since its inception, the label is considered one of the top techno imprints in the industry, with releases from the likes of Adam Beyer, Joseph Capriati, The Advent, Nic Fanciulli and Speedy J to name a few.
His most recent album was with 12 track “High Volume” released back in 2013 on MB Elektronics, dubbed by some techno aficionados as a masterpiece. It was at this time, he also released an up close and personal documentary “Marco Bailey”.
His Electronic Force podcast has been a huge success from the get-go, with almost 300 episodes to date, he has had every artist on board from Carl Cox, Alan Fitzpatrick, Umek, Joseph Capriati, Sam Paganini and Carlo Lio. It’s heard by millions of listeners in more than 50 countries.
Marco has been touring relentlessly throughout his career, he’s an artist who can say he has probably played at almost every club in the world, and been listed at the top of major festivals. He hasn’t stopped, and this summer was no exception his MATERIA brand taking a new home at Vista Club, Ibiza. Every Sunday, he offered artists including Sam Paganini, Carlo Lio, Julian Jewell, and Paul Ritch for the closing on the 28th August all came out to party with Marco and the crowd.
You can expect to see the MATERIA brand reach far and wide this year, with parties in London, Vienna, Amsterdam and Tokyo planned this winter. Mid October will see the release of the MATERIA compilation mix, a collection of tracks selected personally by Marco, of both his own releases and all the artists which played at MATERIA in Ibiza this summer.
MBR Limited is his latest label project currently with 13 releases from a selection of artists. There will also be 20 limited edition series on the label from Marco himself, showing the deeper, darker and purer sound of techno he has been producing of late.
The next release is due out on the 21st October with “Gravity Drag” EP – keep your ears peeled for this one, as it’s a true dance floor destroyer.
2016 continues to be another landmark year for Marco, with his first MATERIA residency considered a huge success, the brand looks to move worldwide, and the labels are only continuing to grow. He is a true pioneer of Techno, and has no plans to put on the brakes anytime soon.
Some artists are content earning the label of “overnight sensation,” while others patiently rely on hard work, dedication, and perseverance to earn the title of “everlasting sensation.” The latter is unquestionably the case for enigmatic Toronto native producer/DJ, Carlo Lio.
Originally known for leading the pack of prodigiously talented Toronto producers, Carlo has utilized his trademark cosmic house and techno sound to cement his status among today’s prodigiously talented world-renowned producers.
For proof, look no further than his remix of the
‘Diablo’ track on Cocoon Recordings. One of the
greatest rewards an artist can receive is to be recognized by his musical heroes, and an even greater honor occurs when those heroes ask you to remix for them. Such was the case for Carlo when Dubfire and Oliver Huntemann approached him to remix ‘Diablo’. Without hesitation, Carlo accepted this project and the resulting track not only topped the charts, but it manifested Carlo’s personal dreams in a single shot. Ever since, Carlo’s discography has exploded, with his music catching the eyes and ears of some of the biggest labels in the market – SCI+TEC, Bedrock Records, MOOD, Desolat, Suara, Intec Digital, and Mindshake Records just to name a few. And in the coming months, Lio will be releasing remixes and collaboration projects for Mathew Dear (aka Audion), DJ Sneak, Paul Ritch, Carl Cox, and Nicole Moudaber.
As talented as Carlo is in the studio, his deep pulsing tech-house and shaggy techno beats are even more powerful with captivating dancers in clubs and festivals around the globe.
With home bases in both Toronto and Barcelona, Lio effortlessly maintains the life of a superstar DJ, continuously roaming the planet for new dance floors to conquer. This year alone has Carlo billed on some of the world’s biggest events, including BPM Festival (Mexico), Digital Dreams (Canada), Audiogate (Germany), Balaton Sound (Hungary), Barrakud (Croatia), Les Plages Electroniques (France) and Music On (Ibiza).
Having no intentions of slowing down from this pace anytime soon, rest assured Carlo Lio is at the top of his game, routed straight into the international limelight with a lifetime of accolades ahead.
