The three-track Random EP floats between deep & tech house with a driving dark late night atmosphere perfect for discerning dancefloors. The title track is built around an eerie sample and string rise and is both modern and classic in its approach to the production. Italian producer C Minor takes things in a more stripped back direction with his remix of Random, a futuristic reinterpretation for fans of Basic Channel & classic tech house. Finally Stop takes things in a big room direction; following an evil bassline & vocal hook this track is equally at home in a sweaty dark warehouse as on the terrace at DC10.
Deeply immersed in the ocean life & natural beauty of his home base on the Hawaiian Islands, Marasco first caught our attention for his work with deep house producer Tuccillo (King St, Freerange). Their collaboration on the Hawabiza Project gave birth to a more classic house sound and delivered stand-out releases for Seamless Recordings & CityDeep Music. Marasco's long connection with the US West Coast and producers like Halo (H-Foundation) opened doors in the house community. Soon his solo productions & remixes appeared on Underground Collective,
Siesta Records and Halos Surface Recordings, which included a remix by house heavyweight DJ Sneak.
Marascos first release for Nordic Trax was the 2013 Need EP, which turned a lot of heads and was supported by the likes of Fish Go Deep, Nikola Batalya, Tuccillo, Yass, Luca Bacchetti, Johnny Fiasco, Mark Farina, Inland Knights and Laurent Garnier who exclaimed "WHAT is superb - full support from me."
