Artist Spotlight: Young Marco

Having paved his way through Amsterdam’s music scene for over 10 years via a string of infamous residencies, renowned releases, and an iconic series of Boiler Room appearances, Young Marco has now become one of the names most associated with the city when it comes to underground music.

Famed as one of the best crate diggers about, his ability to transform those finds into euphoric dancefloor moments has garnered the attention of fans worldwide, especially after his run of featuring 8 years in a row on the infamous Dekmantel Boiler Room sets. Not only a digger & a selector, Marco has released on some of the world’s most respected labels including fellow Dutchman Antal’s Rush Hour records, and Lovefinger’s ESP Institute label, helping to complete his profile as a tastemaker.

In his latest and last appearance on the Dekmantel Boiler Room stage, Marco switched up the dusty house, island grooves & middle eastern disco style he had become so synonymous with, for a driving techno & trance power hour, instantly connecting with the crowd and fans worldwide. The set is already his second most viewed online, in just 2 months.

The standout moment was his closing track, an explosive remix of Imogen Heap’s esteemed ‘Hide & Seek’ track, which sent everyone into a frenzied scramble for the track ID. After teasing it for a short while in comments sections online, Marco finally announced the track was his own version, and that it would be coming out this year.

On January 28th 2023, we’re extremely excited to invite Young Marco to headline our Coroner’s Court opening party, alongside fellow Dekmantel icon & techno fanatic, Courtesy. It will be Marco’s first time playing in Bristol since he played Lakota’s main room on New Year’s Eve 2019, a legendary Lakota night featuring a lineup also including Palms Trax, Nightmares on Wax & DJ Boring.
