Having already picked up three plays on Above & Beyond’s ‘Group Therapy’ radio show including the coveted ‘Push The Button’ feature, Melbourne’s Marcus Santoro lights up the trance & house-music fuse boxes at the mere age of just 20. Full of delicate, building chords, soothing atmospherics and undeniable groove, he has truly laid down the law on musical enthusiasts and their playlists globally.
A producer from the young age of 12, the inspiration flooded in reeling from a close but influential family friend. Pining to get on those bedroom decks and educate the neighbourhood, the sounds came organically. It wasn’t long before his child audio assets in Daft Punk, Michael Jackson and Coldplay fell incredibly in tune with his own exploration of the musical mile. Taking to the studio before his teens, Dirty South and Axwell expanded his drive, reaffirming his beat.
Unstoppable, the Santoro profile has been tapped by Hardwell’s very own Revealed Recordings, with releases on Ultra, Sony, Warner, Armada Music and most recently Enhanced Progressive where his studio aptitude is imprinting itself on airwaves.
’All the Way’ with The Potbelleez made its way to the top 10 ‘Future Hits’ on Shazam and on radio across the nation. His winning remix of Sick Individuals ‘Lost & Found’ found its way to the top 20 on Beatport’s Progressive House Chart. His latest release 'There Is Only You' released through Enhanced hit #8 on the Beatport Trance Charts. Marcus Santoro isn’t far behind on support either, raking in names such as Martin Garrix, Tiesto, Dirty South, David Guetta, Nicky Romero and many more.
After a successful tour across Australia and perfectly executing powerhouse venues like Sydney’s limelight Pacha and Marquee, to Adelaide’s super club HQ, it’s no surprise Marcus’ talent is bringing in a seamless demand for his compelling sound.
Australia has welcomed its most refined electronic export - Marcus Santoro.
