Marco comes from an electro and progressive house background and he is not new to the dance music scene, he has been producing and DJing for several years under a different alias. In the Summer of 2012 he fell in love with the warmth of deep house and garage vibes which spurred him on to create his Titan Road guise. Totally addicted to the groove this new project has already had releases out on labels like Cr2 Records, LouLou Records, Smiley Fingers, Twisted Fusion and DTD records. He is currently DJing at Qloom and Alter Ego events in Italy and he is co-founder of the label Endless Music. He is also an active member of the Verona based Monkeys Music collective.
Lotus intros with a muted kick drum and eerie pad combi alongside shuffling hi hats. The kicks get a boost of power and we find ourselves locked on to the infectious groove that follows. Thos pads linger for a long time before opening up creating a rich texture. Cool vocals litter the sound and blend beautifully with the deeper vibe. A rumbling bassline keeps the low end rocking making this an absolute stomper of a track you will not want to miss.
Backlash offers up a superb tech house groove that will have the floors pumping all night. A nice and smooth intro brings in a pumping kick drum and a captivating synth pad. Dancey, rhythmic hi hats come through and really get the track moving with a little help from a fantastic percussion section. The hypnotic bassline keeps us hooked for the duration giving the track truly infectious nature. A must have track no doubt.
