Marco Lenzi has been producing, remixing and playing all over the world for over a decade, taking his minimal and funky sound to the masses. Marco was born in Livorno, Italy and raised in Rome, where as a teenager he got into clubbing, record collecting and mastered his DJ technique. With seamless mixing and the originality of his programming he soon developed his own unique style.
He has lived in London ever since he came for a week in 1988 and got stuck in the acid house music scene. Marco is forward thinking, with a modest attitude considering his extensive experience in the music field.
Marco's love of electronic music started over 20 years ago after he inherited some records from his father, an electronic engineer for NASA. His early influences include K. Stokhoussen, Pierre Henry, G. Ligety and other producers from the 60' s, artists who weren't afraid to experiment with new sounds and techniques. This is something that Marco keeps in line with his own production and DJ work.
Marco was at the heart of 2 of the best record stores in London – Silverfish and Eukatech. Marco, Nils & Hans Hess and Alex Oppido started the Silverfish Records store on the Charing Cross Road in the heart of London in the early 1990’s. The store was an important part of the growth of the dance scene in the UK, and its reputation was built from the knowledge that they injected into it. After Silverfish, Marco, Nils and Hans opened the infamous Eukatech records in Covent Garden, which provided not only somewhere to listen to the latest tracks but also became known for releasing quality music and winning an award as best independent record label.
Marco’s passion for music led to the birth of Molecular Recordings in 1994, now one of the most respected cutting edge labels in the U.K. On Molecular Marco releases his own material along with many records from artists like Anderson Noise, Chris Liebing, Colin Mc Bean (ex Advent), Danilo Vigorito, Holy Ghost, Inigo Kennedy, Kelly Hand, Oliver Ho and as well the successful anonymous xx series. Marco has also produced more than 50 records on labels including Molecular, Missile, Audio, Eukatech, Noise Music and Primate, just to name a few.
The A-Z of countries around the world where Marco has performed: Argentina, Bahrain, Belgium, Bosnia, Brazil, Bulgaria, Colombia, Czech Republic, Croatia, Ecuador, France, Germany, Greece, Holland, Hungary, Indonesia, Italy, Japan, Kosovo, Macedonia, Malaysia, Mexico, Philippines, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Russia, Siberia, Singapore, Slovakia, Spain, Switzerland, Turkey, UK, USA, Venezuela and Yugoslavia.
In between spending more time on planes than land, Marco is concentrating on spending time in the studio and developing new sounds and styles. He is busy producing new releases for Molecular and various other labels, with an album project in the pipeline. Music will always be a part of his life.
