Although still barely into his twenties, Marco had the privilege of a musical background in his family, allowing him to delve into experiments with electronic music from such early times as playing his first gig aged only 14 in his hometown of Lucca, Italy. Almost 10 years later Marco is working hard to present his sound on the international music scene, with scores of releases included his 2010 HIT Ep ‘STRANGE NEIGHBORS’ on Moon Harbour, his solo EPs ‘WANT LIFE TIME’ and ‘HARD TIME TO TRAVEL’, creating a real stir and were featured on playlists of top DJ’s everywhere. Along with further releases on labels like Get Physical Music, Sci+Tec, Truesoul, Cècille, Be As One, All Inn, Break New Soil, Four:Twenty, inMotion music, Superfiction, Catwash and for his own label Etruria Beat, it seems that Marco will be fast developing an enviable discography for such a young artist in the scene.
During the years, step by step, his passion, charisma and determination led him to playing in some of the best italian and international clubs, like Panorama Bar (Berlin), Cocoon club (Frankfurt), Tenax (Florence), Cafè D’anvers (Antwerp), Vanilla Ninja (Moscow), Toffler (Rottherdam), Egg (London), Woodstock 69 (Bloemendaal), Guendalina (Lecce), The Wood (Bruxelles), Magazzini Generali (Milan), Bloc (Barcelona), Terminal (Birmingham), Grelleforelle (Wien), Electricpickle (Miami), Sankeys (Ibiza) and some Festivals like Tomorrowland (Belgium), Barrakud (Croatia), Extrema Outdoor (Belgium), Day One festival (Spain), Electrosonic (Spain), East Ender (Spain), Kazantip (Ukraine), Zomerkriebels (Belgium), Ade (Amsterdam), Klubbers Day (Spain), 3 Gram (Holland), Sunrise (Belgium) and many more.
The year ahead looks bright for his career, with an already demanding “I WILL WAIT” Album Tour schedule all over Europe, and further upcoming releases on many important labels, like his “Jambo Ep” on DESOLAT and his new UNCOMPROMISED MOOD Ep on Adam Beyer’s label DRUMCODE, confirming his undeniably talent.
Philip Bader was born in Berlin and fell in love with electronic music in 1998. He already gave his DJ-debut in 1999 at the old Tresor club. Just spinning records was not enough so he launched „Max und Moritz“ with his friends. They organized quite a few parties in this constellation, the most famous event in Berlin is „Karneval der Verpeilten“ for sure. Altogether, their Sunday afternoon parties in the old Casino Hof called „Gelee Royal“ were the beginning of the legendary “sunday after” parties in Berlin.
In the end it was just the next logical step for Philip Bader to start producing his own music. And now he is only con- centrating on dj-ing and producing. His production debut was a release with Perry Roden on Monika Kruse’s Label Electric Avenue, followed by successful releases on Kindisch, Saved, Stil vor Talent etc. For instance, a remix for Raz Ohara on Get Physical and „Mumba Drums“ together with Sascha Braemer on Kinisch (sub label of Get Physical). Philip’s productions are characterized by his deep minimalistic Berlin techno style and the really creative and smartly placed vocals – he uses his own voice quite a few times. His DJ sets are like his productions: consistently deep, playful and powerful.
