08/07/12 w/ Young Marco

There must be something in Amsterdam’s water that heightens the musical capacity of its habitants and it comes as no surprise that producer Young Marco is one of these. Marco has raised the bar with his own imprint Hand of God, collaborations with Tom Trago and Awanto 3, a split single with Juju & Jordash issued by his employers Rush Hour and ultimately the landmark NoNoNo b/w Darwin In Bahia 12″ on ESP Institute – two eso-house trance inducers that sounded as if he’d entered the collective consciousness of a Bwiti iboga ceremony. I’ll never forget when Yamantaka Eye dropped Darwin In Bahia at Sugar Mountain Festival, completely transforming an audience of cross-armed stiffs into the most frenetic dance floor. A potent concoction from this medicine man. Expect to hear a lot more from Marco before the year’s end with promise of a string of 12″s leading up to a full length LP, as well as remixes for Michael Ozone, Francis Bebey and Heatstick.
