The unstoppable force-of-nature that's MaRLo is revealed as a dark knight of the tech-energy sound.


MaRLo’s tech-energy style has taken some American club and festival audiences by surprise.

Winter at long last gives way to spring across the Northern hemisphere and, escaping his home country of Australia’s impending winter not a moment too soon, internationally recognized trance and techno DJ and producer MaRLo embarks on these shores.

MaRLo (real name: Marlo Hoogstraten) is a Dutch-born electronic dance music producer from Australia. His unique style – affectionately dubbed “The MaRLo Sound” – derives from the sub-genres of tech-trance, hard-trance and the big room sound. MaRLo considers as his musical influencers such accomplished fellow DJs and producers as Armin van Buuren, Aphex Twin and The Prodigy. In the recording studio, MaRLo has lent his magic touch to remixes for fellow trance heavyweights, Armin, Dash Berlin, Ferry Corsten, W&W and Gareth Emery. As a live performer, MaRLo delivers explosive physical energy and showmanship. MaRLo is best known for his international hits, “Haunted” featuring his wife, the vocalist Jano, and “Atlantis,” the latter peaking at the #1 chart position on Beatport last year. But perhaps the track for which MaRLo is most instantly defined in the eyes and ears of today’s youth is his original production, “Visions,” a monstrous thriller released in 2012. Armin himself commented that, “MaRLo knows how to program the best lead sounds.”
