Deep House: Marcelo Demarco “Be Quiet”
Marcelo Demarco, an established Uruguayan producer, and founder of South American Tech House Label, Suro Records,has just released ‘Be Quiet’ – the latest in a busy line of activity that’s ensured both he and Suro have remained at the forefront of the music game over the last year. It was released on vinyl on the 27th of September and subsequently now it arrives in digital format. Marcelo Demarco developed his unique style based on the underground sectors of house music, consisting of an exotic combination of ethnical and memorable rhythms and his signature blend of custom electronic tones together with tech influences. His productions are versatile, full of original soundscapes and synth design and range from the deep to the groovier side of the underground sounds of House and Techno. Attracting support from: Marco Carola, Richie Hawtin, and Luciano, he’s quickly gaining the attention of some of the most infamous spinners in the business, the international music press and key radios alike.
His latest project ‘Be Quiet’ is an impactful tech house workout, containing powerful bass-lines and distinctive eerie percussion. Starting out with a subtle, almost clock-like electronic synth accompanied by a kick, ‘Be Quiet’ ascends with a curvier rhythm and diverse contextual noises, whilst a soft voice initiates the next segment. Marcelo Demarco throws down an infectious bass-line, whilst keeping the mesmerising rhythm throughout, adding a paint of vibrant electronic effects. Once again a whisper leads to the next part, where the production intensifies with the aid of curious synth chords, which are perfectly blended into the mix. A marimba-like sound and highly compressed drum-fills are added to give more movement to the production whilst climbing to an even higher energy level. A drop is then introduced; the marimba sound becomes more prominent whilst the vocals take over. A short drum solo gets the energy pumping and lifts the track to its full-form again with sporadic drum fills giving the production an added ethnic feel. Once again, Marcelo Demarco makes use of a well-pexecuted drop to take the song through its final surge of power. This drop transcends into a minute ascension, which fades away in the final seconds of the song, ending with a whisper of ‘Quiet’ – ironic as the production is anything but this, but it all works together impeccably and will no doubt be doing the damage on the dance floor.
Aside from the original mix, ‘Be Quiet’ is also available in a darker and deeper remix by El Mundo, a producer known mostly for his work as part of El Mundo & Satori. This project is unquestionably an extension of Marcelo Demarco’s reputable career, and is a solid effort to push towards even higher grounds.
