Leaving a mark on charts, dance floors and music enthusiasts the world over, Dutch born MaRLo backs up the #1 Best Trance DJ and #2 overall DJ in Australia with no justification required. From Beatport #1’s escaping the studio to headlining some of the most sought after dance events in the world, MaRLo is influencing trance, tech trance and progressive house music like no other.
With a solid European beginning, now Australian residing MaRLo took inspiration from pioneers Mauro Picotto, Aphex Twin, Ferry Corsten and The Prodigy where the studio came before the shows and a live act was how he ignited. Driving an incredible talent in the studio he has risen to striking heights claiming top chart spots. Signed to Armin van Buuren’s Armada Music, A State of Trance Recordings proudly boast releases that have taken the world by storm, with Armin personally noting that MaRLo knows how to program the best lead sounds.
Recent anthem Boom not only took #3 on Beatport’s paramount ladder but carried its weight when Armin Van Buuren shared a moment with tens of thousands of fans awakening the “Boom dance”, going viral in just days! Just prior to Boom, The Island featuring Jano claimed #1 spot on Beatport while the Megalodon and Lightning EP’s both upheld strong spots also. Claiming top 10 glory is the anticipated mid year release from MaRLo- Always Be Around breaching the norms globally.
In the remix world, fellow artists demand the finesse of MaRLo following the success of Ferry Corsten’s Punk winning over #3 spot on Beatport while the remix of Armin Van Buuren presents Gaia’s Stellar stole away the prize at #5. Dash Berlin has too created hype around this dominating artist with his remix for Like Spinning Plates featuring Emma Hewitt while W&W too were enlightened by MaRLo’s remix of Impact.
Behind the decks, MaRLo sets ablaze A State of Trance crowds from Privilege Ibiza, ASOT 600 in Beirut to Den Bosch. While Armin Van Buuren’s renowned events deliver brilliance featuring MaRLo, this precisely tuned artist has also graced the stage at Holland’s Trance Energy, World DJ Festival in South Korea and London’s Ministry of Sound and Gallery. Local fans have been treated to a MaRLo show at Stereosonic, Creamfields and Future Music Festival while supporting shows with Dash Berlin, Tiesto and Above & Beyond rank in some of his best shows to date.
The future holds an explosion of musical glory at the MaRLo camp where anticipated releases fused with epic spots on the world’s most incredible electronic events will take charge and won’t be slowing down.
