Marcus Santoro – Emporium [FNT Premier]
Posted by Mel on February 28, 2013
The day I came across 17 year old Marcus Santoro was a special one. I remember it dearly. It was the last day of fall semester before finals. I was sitting at a table, waiting for my friends, when a girl from class came up to me with a twinkle in her eye, a smile on her face, and asked me something. “Do you wanna study together? I live on campus so we can go there if you want. It’ll be fun!” she said. “No, not really” I replied. She then scurried away, seemingly angry for some reason. It was at that moment I realized that I had made a huge mistake. I forgot to bring a lunch. After buying some food I went back to the table, popped open my laptop, and started browsing Soundcloud. That’s when I found his awesome bootlegs of Project 46’s “Feel The Fire” and Chris Reece’s “Life Is Amazing”. He didn’t completely change the songs, but the things he did change were quite good. His drops were some of the best I had heard in a while. I was also surprised at how clean his mixes were for such a young and seemingly inexperienced producer.
He’s had this track locked away for some time now and has allowed me to give its debut. “Emporium” is the quintessential big room track. Displaying mellow breaks, energetic builds, and powerful drops. Having recently been signed to the prestigous Neon Records, the future is looking bright for this young Australian.
