Young Marco album on Island Of The Gods

East meets west in Young Mar­cos album Bahasa” — out this week!

Young Mar­co deliv­ers his sec­ond album to date on the Bali based label Island Of The Gods. This exper­i­men­tal full length fus­es con­tem­po­rary west­ern ideas with the indige­nous sounds of the Indone­sian arch­i­pel­ago includ­ing Bali. Back in 2014, Mar­co trav­elled across these islands immers­ing him­self in the Indige­nous cul­ture and work­ing along­side local musicians.

For Mar­co it was also a look back to his Indone­sian roots, with his late grand­fa­ther born and raised in Indone­sia. The brief was to cap­ture the spir­it, ambi­ence and atmos­phere of the islands as part of the labels Island Explor­er’ album series. ”

Tun­ing into the one and only pre­view of Bahasa” below, you find the last track of the album The Begin­ning And End”. Chim­ing melodies with cin­e­mat­ic pads work togeth­er with sub­tle pro­gres­sions to cre­ate an over­whelm­ing feel of authenticity.

This whole record has been half a decade in the mak­ing, it was cer­tain­ly worth the wait!
