Far beyond 'all-faders-to-the-max' mentality and highly endorphine driven 'hands-in-the-air’ tracks? Easy answer: Sure thing. Ask Marcus Layton: emotion and soul are real must-haves featured in all his tracks.
After produced highly acclaimed remixes for Rihanna, Coldplay, Kosheen and Rosenstolz, Marcus Layton now focuses on his own work. Since he started his career this notorious sound researcher turned out to be a real DIY professional taking control of every detail of his extraordinary work. As an essential act in German and European clubland for a few years now, Layton knows best how modern electronic and dance music sounds and how to achieve it in the studio: a pure vision of infectious electronic music he continues to create to this day.
Writing and recording 'in-your-face’ style club smashes is not good enough for this Berlin based musician, producer and remixer as he proves not only via his highly energetic DJ sets but also in his career as internationally renowned artist and producer. Layton loves to mix different contrasts and styles in order to re-invent his immediately recognisable signature sound. Layton combines the best of both worlds: the missing link between the world of dance and mainstream 'feel-good' sounds. Testing all boundaries with his explosive but extremely emotional electro-meets-pop-hybrid, Layton is a fearless dare-devil delivering an exciting opposite to today´s predictable radio dullness.
Marcus Layton is out to break up styles and shift sounds in order to create his very own music: charismatic dance music inspired by the creative chaos on the buzzing streets of his Berlin-Kreuzberg home and studio; a multi cultural hotspot for every kind of artist, outlaw and hedonist striving for new creative challenges. Layton invites his listeners on a fascinating trip; no matter if they be in bigger clubs, at festivals, or even listening on headphones at home – high energy and pure emotion co-join to create an amazingly new style.
Marcus Layton has stepped up his game, inspired by acts like Calvin Harris, Alesso or Nicky Romero. Since he has created his very own unique style of sound there are now no limits: emotion meets energy, organic sounds meet electronic elements.
How should we name it? It really doesn't matter, at the end of the day there are only two kinds of music : the good one and the rest. You know it when you hear it. We promise.
