An artist gaining some serious traction of late following EPs on Cuttin Headz, MÜSE and LTF Records, Marco Tropeano looks set to finish up 2022 in style as he rounds out his biggest year so far with more fresh music. After launching his label Ojomarino Records at the start of summer with ‘In Your Head’, racking up support from Marco Carola, Joseph Capriati and Michael Bibi to name just a few, late November brings the second instalment on the imprint as he serves up more fresh grooves with his new single, ‘Contacto'.
A slick, vibrant production, ‘Contacto’ showcases the Italian’s sound palette as he blends sweeping melodies and captivating vocals with crisp percussion arrangements to capture the final fading weeks of summer into a near seven-minute journey.
To celebrate his latest release, we asked Marco to join our Hot Picks series with a selection of his favourite jams:
The Brother’s Johnson - Stomp!
It’s an old funky classic… I love listening to it during my train trips and journeys.
Joe Venditti & Mene - Antava
A big track of a close friend of mine. An insane vocal and very groovy, I love to play it!
The Martinez Brothers & Tokischa - Kilo
I can feel the old sound of The Martinez Brothers in this track, definitely a hit.
Shalamar - A Night To Remember
It’s an iconic record of the past. Pure music… nothing else!
Mene - Bice Mi
I love to start some of my sets with this track… It delivers a big push and drive right to the dancefloor.
Benno Blome - Abotha (Mihai Popoviciu Remix)
It’s one of those track that I’ll never get tired of playing… it’s perfect for an opening set!
DJ Delicious & Till West - Same Man (Vocal Club Mix)
This track is the right way to close a party, you’ll only want to jump and dance.
youANDme - PPPPP (Diva Mix)
BOMBA! When I need to make the crowd go crazy, I play this!
Kelvin Ochoa - Una De Mambo
This is one of my favourite genres… I always listen latin/afro, and this track is one of my favourites. It makes me happy.
Vincente García - San Bá
When I’m at home with my friends, I always put this record on the speakers to dance with them and my girlfriend… good vibes!
