MaRLo’s top ten tracks of 2013…so far

It’s a hackneyed expression, but we’re going to go there anyway: 2013 might just be MaRLo’s biggest year yet. In the past nine-odd months alone, the homegrown trance star has hit #3 on the Beatport charts with his huge hit Boom, dropped some far-reaching remixes, got behind the decks at Privilege Ibiza alongside Armin van Buuren as part of ASOT’s residency, been announced as the support act on Dash Berlin’s incoming Australian tour, scored the honour of being the only Australian producer nominated for ASOT 650’s anthem contest and signed on to head around the country with this year’s double-sized Stereosonic tour. It’s an exhausting list of achievements. In the lead up to Stereo and in the middle of a blockbuster 12 months, we hit the local sensation up for his top ten tracks of the year (so far). Being the all-round good guy he is, MaRLo was kind enough to oblige us – so pop your headphones in, turn the volume up and get stuck in below.


1. MaRLo – BOOM

“This track really took things to another level for me, with Armin Van Buuren playing it every set during ASOT600 and also creating “The BOOM Dance” which has caught on in a BIG way!”


2. Armin Van Buuren ft Trevor Guthrie – This Is What It Feels Like (W&W Remix)

“Massive tune which is on mainstream radio worldwide. I think it’s great track for the genre to introduce more new people to the sound.”


3. Mark Sixma & Faruk Sabanci – Tripod

“Builds and builds and then releases into a huge anthemic melody!”


4. Ummet Ozcan – The Cube

“Dark and atmospheric, and just works so well in the later sets.”


5. Fisherman & Hawkins – Apache

“Such a catchy melody!”


6. Marcus Schossow & Sebjak – Kemi

“Great driving track for the start of the set to set the mood.”


7. Craig Connelly ft Christina Novelli – Black Hole

“Love this vocal and the whole track just has such a big uplifting vibe to it.”


8. David Gravell – Bulldozer

“Dark and techy, just how I like it!”


9. Orjan Nilsen – Xiing

“Has such a nice groove, really works on the dancefloor.”


10. Arty ft Fiora – Grand Finale

“Very uplifting “feel good” festival party vibe in this one.”
