443 // Marcus Christiansen – Euphoric Escapade

Marcus Christiansen debuts on Astrolead Recordings with a spot-on release!

Synth aficionado Marcus Christiansen has been slowly carving his name in stone as one of the artists to watch amid the rich and prolific Nu Disco/Indie Dance scene. His strategy – releasing ace stuff usually with heavy doses of cosmic arpeggios and retro-futuristic elements –, so far, has been working flawlessly. With well-received appearances on vital labels such Espacio Cielo, Mélopée, Emerald & Doreen, and Weirdos, he lands now on Ilya Santana’s (SXDNS072) Astrolead with “Euphoric Escapade”, a four-track synth extravaganza (originals only, by the way) that showcases some of the many virtues of the rising Swedish producer.

The track we were solicited to review/premiere is undoubtedly one of the finest cuts on the EP, in our humble opinion, and works as (another) proof that creativity and mastery tend to be highly present in Christiansen’s modus operandi when in studio. The title track is an ingenious and groovy 110-BPM theme with a beautiful Balearic gait triggered by melodic leads, generous synth portions, and a rhythmic percussive layer. Trippy and highly danceable, the way we like it!

You can find (and buy) this and other music pearls on the Bandcamp page of the label.
