Oh By The Way, it’s The Sweatbox with Marco Loco, Obadius and Otherkind 20 January at Elysium Box
The Sweatbox resident Obadius’ curated Oh By The Way 08 night up at Level 32 in Elysium box takes over this Saturday with special guest Marco Loco making a Sweatbox return.
Marco Loco is one of the most versatile DJs in the industry today; a true specialist in several different genres ranging from chillout/downtempo to funk/disco through to house and techno.
Glasgow-born/Ibiza-influenced Marco Loco has been involved in the dance music industry since pretty much the turn of this millennium, have spent a decade and a half of Northern Hemisphere summers 15 DJing in Ibiza where he has held some of the most prestigious residencies on the island such as Space (residing for Carl Cox, Toolroom Knights, Ibiza Calling & Cafe Ole), Manumission, Cafe Del Mar, Salinas Beach, Eden, Es Paradis, Es Vive Hotel, Hush and Savannah.
He was also responsible for the infamous Shipwrecked morning boat parties. The boat parties were sold out every week to a religious following of Ibiza workers from 2006 until they were eventually made ‘illegal’ in 2014.
Playing over 100 gigs every summer in a variety of the island’s coolest hotspots, he has held a residency at his beloved club Space Ibiza for around eight years, showcasing all his different styles.
He has gained a faithful following and a solid reputation in Ibiza through his Djing and innovative promoting. He was the sole promoter of Ibiza Groove, which has run parties since 2003 at various venues including Es Vive Hotel, Es Paradis, Salinas Beach and Hush. He is also responsible for the legendary morning boat parties, Shipwrecked aka Barco Loco.
Marco’s Ibiza DJ residencies have included: Space, Manumission, Es Paradis, Eden, Salinas Beach, Es Vive Hotel, Coco Beach, Hush, Shipwrecked, Savannah and Global Radio. He has also had the pleasure of playing at Café del Mar, Privilege, Underground, The Zoo Project, The Shit Party, Cala Conta, Las Dalias, The Grial and many more…
After years of boat parties in Ibiza, Marco now sails the seas of Gulf of Thailand, predominantly around the islands of Koh Phangan, Koh Samui and Koh Tao, continuing to speciale in underground house/techno, where Marco has been spending the last decade of winters DJing, residing at some of the best underground parties there such Jungle Experience (Koh Phangan), Cha Cha Moon (Koh Samui) & The Castle (Koh Tao), Loi Lay and the Charm Beach Parties, just to name a few. During the winter months he also tours regularly around UK, US, Australia, Dubai and all over Asia.
Away from the DJ booth Marco can be found in the studio, working on numerous projects, from downtempo to full on peak time floor fillers. He’s had several releases to critical acclaim including his debut artiste album Nights of Ibiza, released in October 2013 on Celestial Recordings.
His appetite for the music he loves is admirable and for anyone that has witnessed one of his sets, he clearly loves his job. The ear to ear grin is as much a trademark of a Marco Loco set as the trusted trilby hat. The fact he is in demand in so many venues is testament to his ability and professionalism with which he treats his craft.
Obadius's Oh By The Way is always surprising , non-conformist and a mood setter. Obadius has recently returned from performing at the Epizode 2 Festival in Vietnam, and brings back the excitement, the inspiration and the fresh outlook of a massive event armed with fresh tunes and a new approach.
Sweatbox co-resident OtherKind, also returns with fresh beats and inspiration from The Sweatbox Bali, an inaugural cross sea outing for Sweatbox last week, with a collaboration with Techno Sake テクノ酒.
