"I wanted to create something funky and dancey that reminded me of good times even though the topics were often quite dark."

MARQelectronica is a singer-songwriter and performer from Newcastle with both funky electronic music at his core as well as soulful pop tracks. He released his latest album Savage Times, which features a range of catchy, orchestral disco house tracks, offering a captivating trip from beginning to end.

His songs (produced by Harbourmaster) cover a range of topics and the cost of living is one that keeps on coming up. Next to Nothing is an electro dance song with a memorable chorus that really highlights the pressure people are under, while other songs like I’m waking up to you tell personal stories about recent trauma.

MARQ explains: “All the tracks have a personal connection and are about me making sense and moving forward after a very traumatic time in my life. I wanted to create something funky and dancey that reminded me of good times even though the topics were often quite dark.”

Savage Times has uplifting disco house vibes with orchestral instruments and MARQelectronica’s powerful vocals keep it interesting. If you love house music, you’ll feel the urge to dance to these anthemic songs!
