“It’s been such an incredible experience to play to so many different cities and cultures"
The Sweatbox this Saturday 21 July, is the and joining them as special guest is the now familiar face and infectious smile and music stylings of Marco Loco.
It’s been a great year so far for the Glasgow born-Ibiza influenced DJ of two decades now.
“After a very busy few months in the studio, I’ve been enjoying a 3 month world tour which started in KL (the last time he played for The Sweatbox) back in April,” he says.
“It’s been such an incredible experience to play to so many different cities and cultures. Sweatbox is one of my favourite places to play (in the world) so for me it’s a perfect place to finish the tour before heading back home to Koh Phangan.”
has been involved in the dance industry for two decades. He spent 14 summers DJing in Ibiza where he held some of the most prestigious residencies on the island such as Space (residencies for Carl Cox, Toolroom Knights, Ibiza Calling & Cafe Ole), Manumission, Cafe Del Mar, Es Vive Hotel, Hush, Salinas Beach, Savannah, Eden and Es Paradis. He was also responsible for the legendary weekly morning boat parties Shipwrecked and Shipfaced.
Over the years he gained a reputation as one of Ibiza’s most respected residents which was emphasised when he won “Best Ibiza Resident DJ 2013”.
As Ibiza changed in many ways, Marco decided he was ready for a change too. After spending several winters in Thailand, he decided to move to Koh Phangan in 2015. He was musical director and resident DJ of the famed Jungle Experience parties there for 3 years, helping the party to excel in every direction as much as possible.
Marco enjoys playing regularly at his favourite parties on the island and in Koh Samui, Koh Tao and KL, using the rest of his free time in the studio, which has also been going great.
“I just had a new release on (Koh Phangan-based) Moon Island Records called 'Got it' which focuses on the more fun side of my house and next up is a deep tech track called 'Good Morning' which will be released on (KL-based) Sweatbox Records next month."
“I’ve also released 2 free downloads this summer where I've had the pleasure of remixing “Halcyon” by Orbital and “Coracao” by (co-Koh Phangan DJ Roni Kush). I have another free remix to give away in a few weeks which I'm most excited about. After an amazing 3 month tour, I can't wait to get back on studio mode when I return to Koh Phangan.”
Before he does that, catch him alongside Obadius and Sweatbox co-resiedent OtherKind in an absolutely flaming, electric and ecstatic Sweatbox session this Saturday.
