Progressive House | Project 46 ft. Matthew Steeper – No One (Marcus Santoro Bootleg)

Posted by on September 2, 2013



Just in time for the release of his second single on Neon Records, Marcus Santoro is back with another great bootleg that he is giving away for free. His previous bootleg of their early hit “Feel The Fire” was the first work I heard of his so it was of no surprise when I saw he remixed another track of theirs. In his typical fashion, he kept a portion of the original intact by retaining some of the original chords, but also added his own touch of large sounds and a nice bass during the drop to make it uniquely his.

Here’s a preview of his new single released today in collaboration with Apocalypto. Not really my thing, but maybe you’ll find a liking to it.

Progressive House | Will K, Marcus Santoro & Daniel Gregorio – Open Your Eyes (feat. Mitch Thompson)

Posted by on April 22, 2013

Seventeen year old Marcus Santoro, along with fellow Australians Will K and Daniel Gregorio have just released their debut single on Neon Records. “Open Your Eyes”, like many of Santoro’s previous tracks, is a festival ready big room tune. The sing-along friendly vocals of Mitch Thompson are supplemented perfectly by uplifting melodies that lead up to a high energy, climactic drop. I had a bagel this morning and while saying bagels everywhere are not as good as this song might be a stretch, I will say listening to this song has given me more sexual pleasure than any bagel ever has. Grab the song on Beatport and be sure to go out and live your life to the fullest because one day, when you least expect it, this song will be there for you to slowly caress your face while you sleep.

Exclusive, Progressive House | Marcus Santoro – Emporium [FNT Premier]

Posted by 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.

Progressive House | Feenixpawl feat. Quilla – Universe (Original + David Tort Remix)

Posted by on November 25, 2012

One of the minds behind one of the tracks of the year “In My Mind“, Feenixpawl give us a solo single offering after making waves on the remix front for the majority of 2012. “Universe” tabs Montreal based Quila, who got her name out there with her work on “Walls” with Sultan & Ned Shepard earlier this year, who adds a ethereal top line over driving, pitched synths and a well crafted piano lead. David Tort simplifies the track and adds a chopped up, crunchy synth line with well placed electro stabs.
