R&S Records heads to EGG Ldn with Mariel Ito



R&S Records are heading to London on Saturday 21st July to Egg London for a mammoth party including Mariel Ito.

Unequivocally one of the hardest-working electronic artists in the game, Eric Estornel’s (aka Maceo Plex/Maetrik/Mariel Ito) music career seems like the stuff of legend. Getting his start as a DJ at the age of 16 in Dallas, Texas, and working his way up to music production at 19, the musical machine that is Maceo Plex has gone on to release 68 singles and EPs, five albums and performed in over 40 different countries since the turn of the century.  The last time Estornel released under this moniker was in the early to mid-00’s, during his affair with electro and IDM laced sounds. The project has recently been revived in the form of a new EP on R&S titled ‘2000 – 2005’ which is due to be released at the end of August 2018.

He’s joined by the label’s co-founder Renaat Vandepapeliere & Evigt Mörker.  Renaat Vandepapeliere, the man who has spearheaded the label since 1984, holds a status as one of the most innovative and energetic personalities in electronic music. Responsible for licensing early tracks from Aphex Twin, Joey Beltram, CJ Bolland and many more.  Evigt Mörker, Ada Kaleh, G-Prod complete the line-up to showcase some of the talents behind their releases on R&S, driving an emotionally charged sound which touches on minimal techno fuelled with spirited, exotic rhythms from start to finish.

Grahame Farmer

Grahame Farmer’s love affair with electronic music goes back to the mid-90s when he first began to venture into the UK’s beloved rave culture, finding himself interlaced with some of the country’s most seminal club spaces. A trip to dance music’s anointed holy ground of Ibiza in 1997 then cemented his sense of purpose and laid the foundations for what was to come over the next few decades of his marriage to the music industry.
