Marlus


Read the Marlus Interview below and share it on social media.


Please tell our readers who you are and what you do?


I’m Marlus, 18 years old, music producer and Dj from Italy. I come from a small city in the north east where there aren’t many possibilities for artists and musicians of my music genre.
Music has always been my passion: it all started when I was 10 and I begun a drum course with the parson of my country, I have to thank him because he passed me all his passion and from here I began djing at private parties and I started listening to unknown and underground musical genres.

As a producer I started a year and a half ago with FL Studio, playing it as a child, but months later I started learning and better understand electronic music and its composition.
Last July, after 3 months of work and improvement, I released on my Soundcloud profile with the label ‘Get Monkey’ my first single called “Roses”, a Chill Trap track. I'm not proud of this track, it does not represent me, I like to do what transmits emotions to me.

Months later, on October, I released my second track called “Love (4u)” dedicated to my girlfriend and my third one called “Just Celebrate”. These two tracks have a lo-fi hip-hop influence and thanks to the ‘lo-fi family’ group I won the ‘Producer Of The Month of January 2018’ contest.

The 16th of January came out on ‘Your Secret’, an Artist Intelligence Agency Soundcloud page, my fourth track, an Indie Lo-Fi song. This is so special because I found a great Italian singer called Carla Gristina and she sang over my release “Love (4u)”.
The track name is “To Get Her (Love)” and you can find it on Soundcloud, Spotify, Apple Music and in all the stores.


How would you describe your influences and how have they changed over the years?


My musical tastes have changed and over time they change continuously.
As a child I started listening to Hard Rock and Metal, like AC/DC, then I discovered EDM and it all changed. I started with Deadmau5, David Guetta and Swedish House Mafia and then I opened my mind.

At the moment the artists that influence me the most are Kaytranada, Flume, Disclosure, Sam Gellaitry, Louis Futon, Shiloh, Petit Biscuit, Cashmere Cat and Mura Masa. I listen also to Bass Music genres, like dubstep, riddim, trap and bass house.
I often listen to some italian Indie music, Pop american singer, rappers from around the world, they all give me inspiration for my music.
Everyday I try to discover new talents on Soundcloud or listen to alternative music.


What´s new right now?


I don’t have gigs in program, only private parties, maybe I will play the first hours in a club in my city, where I will surely play my productions!

I’ve got a lot of new material but any release in program. I made a lo-fi flip of Drakes’ new song ‘Diplomatic Immunity’, i’m working on a collab with Azkoo and one with Marco Campo, my two italian friends.

Maybe there will be a new collaboration with Carla Gristina,I made also a lot of new lo-fi chill songs and I’m working for a release of an EP.
