MARCO BAILEY (Drumcode, MB Electronics, Bedrock)
Marco grew up in a small village inBelgium. Nothing much happened there really, but he did learn that one doesn’tachieve much without working hard. He is a true hedonist but a workaholic aswell. Marco loves to work hard and spin records as much as possible; sleepingis for later. Therefore, his colleagues know him for his no-nonsense kick-assmentality.
At the age of 12, Marco wanted nothing morethan to become a sportsman since motocross and competitive cycling were hispassions until injuries made it impossible to continue and Marco soon had a newobsession – music, then shortly after that DJing, his burning, all-consumingdrive could only be calmed by getting into music. A positive result of this isseen on a daily basis in the studio, where together with his best friend Tom Hadeshe works on tracks and DJ sets, puzzling just as long as it takes to get it tosound right and release the right energy. Marco calls this his ‘positivedisorder’, positive because it gives meaning to his life. He is constantly onthe road or at work in the studio and doesn’t take his job lightly. He investsall of his energy to make sure he can give the best possible performance to hisaudiences all around the world.
Having a superstar status in Belgium, hetravels the world playing the biggest events as well as the small intimateclubs. His mixture of party techno, minimal and electronic house means he is apermanent fixture at all major European festivals and clubs. With love, hardwork and fantastic sounds he has succeeded in gaining worldwide recognition.Playing events like Extrema Outdoor (NL), Awakenings (NL), I Love Techno (BE),Nature One (DE), Wire (JP), Monegros (SP) and clubs such as Zouk (SG), Ageha(JP), Space (ES), Industrial Copera (ES) and Chinese Laundry (AU) he has madeclear that he still is a big force to reckon with.
Killer releases on Intec Records, Primate,Zync & Tortured, confirmed his strong reputation as a producer over thelast eight years. He has since set up MB Elektronics & MB Selektions torelease high quality music and remixes by none other than Adam Beyer, Umek, BenSims, Smith & Selway, Claude Young, Christian Varela, Redhead, AxelKarakasis and Takaaki Itoh. November 2009 saw the MB labels 55th release.
In 2000 he joined forces with ChristianVarela to set up Pornographic Recordings, a respected outlet to give unknowntalent a chance to release their music. After a short hiatus where both partiesconcentrated on their own careers the label is back up and running withreleases from Joseph Capriati and Cristian Varela. The Pornographic parties,which are a great success in Spain, are continuing to become bigger and betteraround the world. Marco Bailey does not like to think in boxes but more outsidethe box. Although he has an expansive taste in music, techno keeps intriguinghim. Despite techno growing into a bigger genre with its sub-styles in minimal,tech house and hard techno, he still discovers fascinating records in everystyle. This is the reason Marco’s sound is so diverse and surprising.
A slight change of both his production andDJ-ing styles has led to recent releases on John Digweed’s forward-thinkingBedrock Records (‘Jungle Laps’, October 2009 / ‘Watergate EP’, January 2010 /‘Rayavadee’ with Tom Hades, April 2010), with a new artist album due on the labelin February 2011.
2010 has given Marco so many happymemories. Whether it be Marco’s shows with Carl Cox at Space Ibiza and BrixtonAcademy London, or the landmark of celebrating 60 releases on MB Elektronic’swith Marco’s ‘The Sixtieth’ compilation, or the honour of being voted 20th mostpopular DJ in Japan by the influential Loud Magazine. Most recently, Marco hasreleases currently available on Spektre’s Respekt Recordings (‘Sweet NarcosesEP’) and Fergie’s Rekluse label (‘Acid Sop’). Both EP’s are collaborations withTom Hades and should keep the floors rocking over the New Year period withtheir heavy intense grooves and playful melodies. To finish the year offperfectly, Marco’s weekly ‘MB Elektronik Force’ radio show is now availableworldwide as a podcast via iTunes.
