MARQUEZ ILL

Co-owner of now defunct Voltage Musique Records, Berlin based MARQUEZ ILL aka ARQUETTE is better known for his DJ and production skills.

Nowadays behind the decks everywhere he’s best known for his productions with numerous vocalists like Leigh Myles, Bright Light Bright Light, Onosizo and Jessica Care Moore where he combines his love for early House music with 10 years experience as a Hip Hop DJ and producer.

Marquez‘ deep, soulful and refreshingly original take on electronic music has resulted in his tracks being played by Laurent Garnier, Markus Kavka, Seth Troxler, Maya Jane Coles, Hans Nieswandt, Phonique, Tigerskin, Dirt Crew, Jay Lumen, Sidney Charles, Hernan Cattaneo, Pole Folder, Jody Wisternoff, Kassey Voorn, Paul Hazendonk, Tom Novy, Solee, Heinrichs & Hirtenfellner, The Glitz, Aka Aka, Beth Lydi, Felix Cage, Franco Bianco among others.

DkA vs. Hollis P Monroe – Snooze It Off (Marquez Ill Remix)

You can’t go wrong with this collaboration between talented Belgian producer DkA and American House legend Hollis P Monroe. House hymn “Snooze It Off” strikes with the power of a lightning bolt taking the shortest route from your ears to your feet. Voltage Musique label head Marquez Ill adds some extra monster drive to his ill remix. Shifting down a gear, late night groover “Noche” features wicked Spanish vocals by Elenita.

1) Not Easy (Original Mix)
2) Not Easy (Sidney Charles Remix)
3) Not Easy (Marquez Ill Remix)
4) Not Easy (David Phillips Remix)

Late 2012 nobody expected The Glitz‘ NOT EASY to be that hot. But after a couple of weeks and months NOT EASY could be found in numerous playlists and DJ-charts by the likes of Loco Dice, Santé and Yousef. For DJ-Mag Germany it was one of the most important tunes 2012 and even Defected licensed it for “Loco Dice – In The House Compilation”. Enough reasons to put a new The Glitz version and three remixes by Sidney Charles, Marquez Ill and David Phillips on the table. Lets go!

The Glitz – Not Easy (Marquez Ill Remix):

Marquez Ill – Sunrise EP

Released by Opossum Recordings
Remixes by Arquette, Frank Martiniq
Cat# OPSM035
Produced at HenMounTain Studios
Mastering by Salz Mastering

With Sunrise, Voltage Musique co founder Marquez Ill delivers an insistent three-note bassline repeats over tight toms as pads build to support an epic, brassy sustained hook. Under his housier moniker Arquette he reinterprets his original with a longer percussive build to rubber-band synths and shining, psycadelic vibes. Frank Martiniq reduces the original to deep, woody, knocking noises over a misty morning after hours groove.

Marquez Ill – Regret Remixes EP

Released by Voltage Musique Records
Remixes by Tigerskin, The Glitz, Vector Lovers, Franco Bianco
Cat# VMR033
Produced and Mastered at HenMounTain Studios

We laced a great package within a very club compatible remix of The Glitz as well as a Tigerskin interpretation for the Deephouse lovers. A bit more moony and faraway are the reworks from Vector Lovers and from Franco Bianco. All in all a very felicitous restage of Marquez Ill’s and Leigh Myles’s smash hit.…

REGRET FEAT. LEIGH MYLES (ORIGINAL MIX):

Marquez Ill vs Pole Folder – Nocturne (Alexanderplatz Mix)

Taken from Marquez Ill vs Pole Folder – Nocturne EP
Released by Reworck
Cat# RW4
Country: Belgium
Produced by Marquez Ill & Bobby Soulo
Mastered by Robert Babicz

Supported by Laurent Garnier, Hernan Cattaneo, Tigerskin, SIS and Franco Bianco. Berlin meets Brussels on Pole Folder and Marquez Ill’s new collaboration ‚Nocturne‘. Voltage Musique’s Marquez Ill’s Alexanderplatz Mix does Berlin proud with a tight tech house groove driven forwards by raw percussion and soulful deep house vocals. Reworck label boss Pole Folder’s Grand Place Mix is a funky concoction of funky house and Belgium melodic nu beat, which somehow, still works wonders. And both are the sound of two cities in tandem.
