Marco Weibel (NY)
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, Bass, Soundsystem Culture and beyond, depending on the setting.
Known for his tight mixtapes and guest sets on platforms such as Dubspot Radio, 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, Scratcha DVA, Yaeji, Photay, Kyle Hall, Krystal Klear, Iman Omari, Howie Lee to name a few.
Steadily making his rounds, Marco has played in numerous cities such as Singapore, 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 that airs on Radar Radio in London. The shows have featured some amazing and diverse guest such as Lefto, Flamingosis, B.Cool-Aid, Byron The Aquarius, Andre Power, Nickodemus, Nick Hook and others. Highly sought after for his deep digs and selections, Marco also hosts a monthly mix series, ‘Various Channels’ on Balamii NYC. Whether Marco’s playing at major Singapore festival, Zoukout (2013), 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 dancefloor annihilation, he’s got it locked down.
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.
