Marco Weibel (NY)
Brought up on a soul diet, DJ / selector Marco, dabbles in things deep, funky, diverse and raw. Originally from Singapore, Marco is one of the brightest selectors to have emerged out of the South-East Asian scene. His recent move to New York has only furthered his musical reach, and his eclectic sound palette spans across a wide range of sounds from Beats, Modern Funk, Disco, Dub, Boogie, Afro/Brazilian, Deep House, Footwork, UK Bass and beyond.
Known for his tight mixtapes on platforms such as Dubspot Radio, Karmaloop and Live For The Funk, this talented cat has shared dance-floors with established tastemakers such as Francois K, Scratcha DVA (Hyperdub, UK), Kyle Hall (Wild Oats), Krystal Klear (All City), Pablo Valentino (FACES/MCDE) to name a few. Steadily making his rounds, Marco has played in numerous citys such as Singapore, Tokyo, Toronto, Montreal, Sao Paulo, Rio, Jakarta, Bali and holds various residencies in New York City. Whether he’s playing at major Singapore festival, Zoukout (2013), Potatohead Beach Club Bali for the sunset, or the intimate industry hangout Black Flamingo in Brooklyn, be sure to expect a wide variety of head nodding frequencies to get down to while he’s on the decks.
Spearheading US operations, Marco is a core member of music label/collective Darker Than Wax, which has been constantly pushing the boundaries of underground/leftfield music. Featured by the likes of Hypebeast, Ala Champ Magazine and brand collaborations with Adidas and G-Shock, Darker Than Wax’s mint catalogue of releases have also gotten nods and plays from the likes of Boiler Room, Rinse FM, Brownswood, Soulection to name a few. Marco also co- hosts the labels monthly radio show, syndicating off Dash Radio.
