Having already picked up more than a dozen plays and invited as a guest on Above & Beyond’s much loved ‘Group Therapy’ radio show and now a regular on Armin van Buuren’s ‘A State Of Trance’, Melbourne’s Marcus Santoro proves why he is becoming known as one of the fastest rising artists in today’s Australian dance music scene. With undeniable groove, uplifting melodies and soothing atmospheres, he has truly laid down the law on musical enthusiasts and their playlists globally.
Unstoppable, the Santoro profile has been tapped by Swedish House Mafia maestro’s Axwell and Sebastian Ingrosso, with releases on Axtone Records, Armada Music, Revealed Recordings, Enhanced Music and most recently, signing to Armin van Buuren’s very own Armind imprint with the new single ‘Hijack’.
Marcus’ single ‘There Is Only You’ quickly made its way to the top 10 on Beatport’s Trance chart and received an incredible premiere and 3 plays in a row on Above & Beyond’s ‘Group Therapy’ radio show leading to performing a guest mix. His remix of Shapov and Trouze’s ‘The Way’ on Axtone Records also hitting top 10 on Beatport’s Big Room chart, as well as reaching more than 1,000,000 streams on Spotify and receiving support from heavy-weights from the likes of Martin Garrix, David Guetta, Tiesto, Hardwell, Axwell Λ Ingrosso, and many more…
From perfectly executing powerhouse venues across the country such as Sydney’s limelight Marquee and Adelaide’s monstrous HQ Complex, to performing at the famous Marvel Stadium (previously called Etihad Stadium) for the worlds biggest Transmission festival and a headliner at UNITE with Tomorrowland in Abu Dhabi, it’s no surprise Marcus’ talent is bringing in a seamless demand for his truly compelling sound.
Australia has welcomed its most refined electronic export - Marcus Santoro.
