About the Show
Materia Music MARCO BAILEY Radio Show at Uculturemix What is MATERIA? A journey where the want, need & desire to feel the real techno sound is understood. Where music lovers can digest the passion in the percussion, the energy of people all around the world intertwined and coming together, experience the sensation of letting go – elements that constitute the foundation for what some may never get to fully experience… a pure musical journey. Welcome MATERIA – where techno is valued as a religion, the truest religion of all which unites through sound people of all colours, nations, beliefs and sex – where the rules require two things: listen and live. We present you our brand new MATERIA Music radio show by Marco Bailey, taking up the button of the legendary Elektronic Force radio show. Fasten your seat belts and enter MATERIA!
It all starts with a beat. A virtuoso of any craft starts with a love in their heart and a belief that this is their path. Great talents make their mark on the world by perseverance, struggle and dogged determination- traits few can withstand for very long these days. But sometimes a character…
Icon. Living legend. Both definitions that apply to Marco Bailey, a self-taught dj and producer whose career started to develop in the late 80s after attending a local club in his native Belgium, and being completely seduced by the rhythmic power of dance music. That was when all changed. A first approach that triggered the decision to be behind decks instead of the dancefloor. And since then, he has committed his life to music.
Three decades later, he’s known as an artist constantly pushing techno to its next level, this by producing his own tracks, managing his first own label MB Elektronics (established in 2001), and of course, by travelling all around the world to make people dance and go crazy with his flawless technique and impeccable selection. When a night is in need of a dose of powerful beats and a deep-intense atmosphere, his’ is the name that needs to be summoned. And this is exactly how over the years he has landed in cities far away from his hometown, with Nairobi (Africa), Tokyo (Japan), Beijing (China), Los Angeles + New York (USA), Sydney (Australia) and Buenos Aires (Argentina) just as a -very- few examples. Yes, it is fair to say the globe has lived the Marco Bailey experience on each cardinal point.
During his career, he has released acclaimed singles, Eps and albums on labels like Primate, Drumcode, Bedrock, Intec, Arts etc, on each one of them demonstrating a forward thinking approach, and the desire to not just ignore, but break -or crush- the mold of what can be considered a trend in a certain moment. On each producion he stays 100% true to his instinct and beliefs, and that is an unbreakable pact with his heart.
Nowadays, as an innovator and an artist completely and permanently devoted to his craft, he’s at the helm of MATERIA, a concept that was born on 2015 as a successful event dedicated to techno in its purest form. Four years later, this meeting point for techno lovers is known as concept that also includes a healthy label with over 20 releases from top-class names and a bi-weekly radio show that has welcomed revered selectors like The Advent and Paul Ritch, as well as new talents Kas:st and Yotam Avni. Paris, Miami, Tokyo, Barcelona, Liverpool, Amsterdam and its birthplace hometown Belgium have already witnessed the MATERIA’s experience full effect, and more places will join the route soon.
With all these credits, it not hard to clearly notice that for Marco Bailey music is everything, and the hot projects prepared for the upcoming months will prove it once again. New growth steps for MATERIA, a long awaited MB Elektronics comeback with an Ep from Aphrohead (Felix Da Housecat’s alias), and new tracks from him that will be soon unleashed to the world.
