The details (from wikipedia)


Marlo Hoogstraten ([ˈmɑrloː ˈɦoːxstraːtə(n)]), also known by his stage name MaRLo, is a Dutch/Australian trance DJ, record producer and musician from Amsterdam.

He currently resides in Australia. In 2010, he was voted Australia's Number 2 Trance DJ and overall Number 11 in the Inthemix Top 50 DJ Poll. He started his career using hardware synthesizers (Roland JP-8000, Nord Lead, Korg Wavestation, Novation Supernova) and nowadays produces almost exclusively on his computer.


Hoogstraten is known as MaRLo in the music industry (with the mid-name capitalisation due to his repeated introduction as 'Mario' by radio DJs). Born in the Netherlands, he currently resides in Australia. The MaRLo sound is a signature blend of hands in the air moments with tech infused beats, encompassing influences of Trance, Techno, Tech-House and a mish mash of various other chunky sounds. MaRLo is not one to be pigeon holed, and his DJ sets can only be described as the "MaRLo sound". MaRLo's studio trickery has seen him sign productions to trance super-labels such as Armada, Spinnin Records, Blackhole recordings, Flashover and others. He is married to Jano, a trance singer who is known to have collaborated with many artists such as Armin van Buuren and Andrew Rayel.

The music mixed and remixed by MaRLo rely heavily on electronic sounds. The primary influences for his music include trance, techno, and house music. MaRLo has signed productions to a number of trance and house super-labels such as Spinnin' Records, Armada, Black Hole Recordings and Flashover Recordings.
