Marco Faraone is a prolific and versatile producer whose incendiary live sets have earned him the attention of all the right people. A native of Tuscany, Faraone became a resident at Florence’s globally-renowned Tenax club, a regular slot that meant he quickly graduated from ‘crafty up-and-comer’ to one of modern Techno’s most recognised and respected names. It paved the way for a career that’s since seen him DJ at the likes of Fabric, Panorama Bar and Amnesia and alongside household names such as Jeff Mills, Chris Liebing and Ben Klock.
Anyone familiar with his output -both as a DJ and as a producer and label owner- will be all too aware that his is a sound that’s practically impossible to pigeonhole. Marco’s productions have graced some of the scene’s most respected labels like Drumcode, Defected and Rekids as well as his own much-respected UNCAGE imprint.
