CF: Hi this is Connie Fan from Soletron.com here with Marc Marzenit at Ultra Music Festival. Hi how are you?
Marc: “Good, so happy to be here.”
CF: Thanks for coming here.
Marc: “My pleasure.”
CF: How’s your set so far?
Marc: “Well it was nice. I played in Bedrock stage. It was more underground music, but I enjoy playing so much with a lot of friends. My stage was kind of hidden from other ones in the corner, but the sound system was amazing and I had so much fun. The people here are so nice.”
CF: For the people who aren’t familiar with your style of music, how would you describe it?
Marc: “Well, I think it’s kind of a deep techno with progressive sounds. It’s between tech house and techno with melodies. Something more dark.”
CF: When did you start producing music?
Marc: “I started when I was 11 years old. I’ve been making music almost all my life. I started playing piano. I took seven years of piano, and then I started DJing when I was 14. Then producing, I made my own label. It’s kind of a long career.”
CF: So what got you into producing and doing deep house?
Marc: “When I was young I loved electronic music. My dad used to work in a record shop, so I got a lot of vinyls in my house, and I was a kid playing with them. Since I was a child, I loved electronic music. I couldn’t tell you why. It’s been a passion I’be been having all my life.”
CF: So when you make your music and you’re playing it during live sets, what do you want your listeners to take away from it?
Marc: “I really want the listeners to listen to the story, not random tracks. One of the things I don’t like is listening to random tracks. They are not telling you anything. I like to make the people feel a story. They can feel more chill and go out, a moment of happiness, powerful moments, feeling happy.”
CF: What are your inspirations for these stories?
Marc: “Usually what I like to do is have two or three songs. I think that’s the most important thing. Then depending on the crowd, I’ll go this way or some other way. I like to prepare the first three tracks then nobody knows where we’re going to end up. It could be crazy or deep.”
CF: Where have you been around the world?
Marc: “Australia, Canada, Mexico, Argentina, Europe.”
CF: Where are you favorite places? Where are the best crowds?
Marc: “I had so much fun playing in Argentina. Out there they are really really into it. They are really big fans. Soon as you are playing a track, 10 seconds they know the name of the track. If you do some mistake or whatever, they are really critical, so its a good good good crowd.”
CF: What are you currently working on right now?
Marc: “Right now I’m working on an album on Bedrock, the stage I was playing on yesterday. I’ve been working on this the last, probably, year. I will finish in May, something like that.”
CF: Can you give us a taste of what we can expect?
Marc: “It’s going to surprise a lot of people. Usually I work with singers, but in this album I wrote the lyrics. There are some kinds of deep house tracks going more into techno. Really really nice. I made really really really nice story. I think people are going to love. I think it’s really nice. It has a lot of meaning to me.”
CF: As a last shout out to our Soletron fans, what would you like them to remember you as?
Marc: “Well, remember me as a crazy ride. I don’t know.”
CF: What do you love to do?
Marc: “I love to make people happy, to feel something. Not empty music. The music needs to feel a bit of hurt. It needs some sort of hurt.”
