“Leave My Hand” is as melodically uplifting as one would expect a trance song to be, and this work may be seen as a foil to the much darker, breaks-driven “tech-energy” sound that’s MaRLo’s alter-ego.

Electrifying. Enthusiastic. Ecstatic. Captivating to watch, MaRLo gives his entire body and spirit to DJing when he is performing. His unabashed love for the music is so infectious, he wields the power to turn any sleepy room or lazy meadow into a ram-packed, steamy party where smiling faces and dancing bodies mash and bounce like atoms in a nuclear reactor. As an electronic dance music producer, MaRLo knows just where the sweet-spot lies and he hones in on the target each time he composes a new track or song. MaRLo's "Leave My Hand" (Armind), featuring Emma Chatt, is out now.

From the outset, a gut-rumbling sub-bass commands the airwaves and instantly grabs the attention of all listeners in earshot. A mournful, enchanting piano riff enters immediately thereafter, signaling something emotional just ahead. Just then, the wistful, silvery vocals of Emma Chatt enter the picture like the delicate voice of an angel. “Leave My Hand” starts off as a ballad and gradually builds into a very pretty trance song that will have music fans singing along and swaying to and fro. The song builds in triumphant, sweeping, euphoric swells until the vast chorus and drops where a 4/4 beat eventually appears. “Leave My Hand” is as melodically uplifting as one would expect a trance song to be, and this work may be seen as a foil to the much darker, breaks-driven “tech-energy” sound that’s MaRLo’s alter-ego.

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 among many others. 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. MaRLo’s signature track is still relevant today,\ -- his monster hit from 2012, “Visions” -- and crowds erupt whenever he plays it now. As Armin himself commented, “MaRLo knows how to program the best lead sounds.”

Emma Chatt is a 23-year-old singer/songwriter hailing from Perth, Australia, with previous releases on Dark SoHo and Redux Recordings. Gifted with an agile, refined singing voice, Chatt has recently teamed with MaRLo on the recording, “Leave My Hand,” and she has performed live alongside MaRLo in his Altitude concerts.
