DARKER THAN WAX
feat. Marco Weibel & RAH
COVER | free entry before midnight, $20 after midnight
Brought up on a diet of soul, early chicago/detroit house, jazz and rare grooves, DJ / selector Marco, dabbles in all things deep, spiritual, raw and honest. Originally from Singapore, Marco is one of the brightest selectors to have emerged out of the burgeoning South-East Asian scene. His move to New York has only furthered his musical reach, and his eclectic sound palette spans across a wide range of sounds from Beats, Dancefloor Jazz, Boogie, Afro/Brazilian, Hip-Hop, House/Techno, Footwork, Dub, Soundsystem Culture and beyond, depending on the setting. Known for his tight mixtapes and guest sets on platforms such as Worldwide FM, Block.fm (Tokyo), Rinse FM and Live For The Funk, this talented cat has shared dance-floors with established tastemakers such as Francois K, Quantic, Yaeji, Scratcha DVA, Photay, Kyle Hall, Inga Copeland, Iman Omari, Howie Lee to name a few.
Steadily making his rounds, Marco has played in numerous cities such as London, Barcelona, Brussels, Hamburg, Tokyo, Toronto, Montreal, Sao Paulo, Rio, Jakarta, Bali and holds various residencies in New York City. Marco co-hosts 2 of Darker Than Wax’s staple radio shows. 'Darker Than Wax FM’, a weekly mix show that airs live on The Lot Radio as well as ‘We Move’, a monthly broadcast recorded out of Red Bull Studios NY. The shows, 130 episodes deep, have a cult following and featured diverse guest such as Lefto, Flamingosis, B.Cool-Aid, Byron The Aquarius, Suzi Analogue, FaltyDL and others. Highly sought after for his deep digs and selections, Marco always connects the dots between the old and new. Whether Marco’s playing at major festival, Dimensions in Croatia, Potato Head Beach Club Bali for the sunset, or the smoked-out basement club Black Flamingo NYC for Discogs-endorsed ’24 Hours of Vinyl’ (presented by Music Is My Sanctuary) in Brooklyn, Marco’s ability to discern the vibe and dish out thoughtful and appropriate frequencies for head nodding or straight dance floor annihilation, he’s got it locked down.
Spearheading US operations, Marco is also core member of music label/collective Darker Than Wax, which has been constantly pushing the boundaries of underground/leftfield music, and supported by the likes of Gilles Peterson, Bradley Zero, and more.
RAH’s foray into electronic music began with her fascination of rolling amen breaks and drum patterns in drum and bass - this formative pursuit naturally progressed to the turntables, which triggered her ability as a selector. Her sound has since developed a to distinct, eclectic style that has reached out to audiences across Asia, Europe and America. She recently made her debut at international festivals, Dimensions 2018 in Croatia and Wonderfruit 2018, in Thailand.
RAH is part of two independent movements in Singapore, Darker Than Wax & Revision Music - where she explores as a DJ alternative sounds the likes of Afrobeat, Jazz, Hip-Hop, Funk, Soul, Dub, and Bass and everything else in between. It’s a mixed bag of fun that aims to please both herself and the dancing.
