For all his industrious Progressions, creative Dutch trouse monger Marco V has certainly changed his colours on the ascent to the summer season. Armed with a new offering for his TAO imprint in the form of ‘GOHF’, the distinguished producer turned multi-faceted industry figure embraces the realms of grind-happy Electro House.
Where previous solo productions hinted at his ongoing plight to incorporate the oversubscribed genre, ‘GOHF’ fits the profie perfectly. Laced with raging high-end synth work and a diligently heavy-set chord sequence, Marco’s Knife Part-esque stylings may not hit the mark where originality is concerned, but reigns supreme on the merits of adrenaline soaked stylings with the dexterity to fuel both club and festival crowds alike for 2012.

At the outset of what promises to be a strong year for the renowned Dutch beatsmith, Marco V’s ‘Anologital’ was always going to be open to substantial intervention from his European peers. Leading with a distinct take on Marco V’s tamer original cut, rising Dutch duo Bassjackers kick off proceedings with a distinctly lead driven outing of mechanically pitched Progressive House that emulates the renowned energy of their respective homeland scene. Like-minded peers First State then step in to bring an overtly heavier outing of deep and resonating leads and heavy-hearted bass frequencies for the grittier remix of this package. Russian two-piece Hard Rock Sofa then take ‘Analogital’ to their own persuasive peak time heights, lacing their signature tough Electro vices onto the sterling melodic play boasted by Marco’s original score to top off a dignified package for TAO.

As far as contemporary Dutch visionaries are concerned, Marco V has remained a gleaming entity to Europe’s stern electronic backbone. Having successfully injected his early Trance roots into every imaginable avenue of EDM, a continuous presence on the international club circuit has allowed him to channel his anthemic studio output through his In Charge imprint and T.A.O multimedia concept.
At the height of his global ascent, the eclectic Dutch talent presents one of his most ferocious and varied tracks to date. Drawing on the dexterity of his once Trance-based output, Analogital plasters through the darker realms of Marco’s studio presence to deal a hefty dose of Electro-fused club fuel for T.A.O. Displaying the signature low-end properties of Electro House alongside his concise yet significantly unpretentious signature vibes, the steep builds and turns of this old-school epiphany marks a promising notch in an artist still able to remain relevant in the modern music market. It may not be to the standard of persistent Trance aficionados, but ‘Analogital’ marks a positive revolution for the renowned Dutch club filler and his impending global legacy.

After having successfully dropped his highly-supported anthem called Reaver, his new label, TAO Recordings, came to a great start getting their debut release into tracklistings of Axwell among others. The second instalment, back in early December, was yet another big step in the right direction for Marco V and his imprint. A third release has now also been revealed, coming from the corners of the Dutch producer as well. It’s a single called Provider, going in the footsteps of his previous smashers with that unique pounding beats and highly-pitched synth lines!
