Italian phenomena, Marnik, have made their mark as one of the most promising talents in today’s scene as they quickly scale the Beatport charts, perform electrifying sets around the world, and garner the support of dance music icons. Emanuele and Alessandro, known as Marnik, have truly impressed the masses with their distinct originals; boasting tantalizing melodies influenced by trance and progressive house, resulting in pure anthemic productions that command each and every crowd.
Marnik have joined Steve Aoki in their forthcoming endeavors, having collaborated with him on a single titled ‘Supernova’ on Ultra Music with Lil Jon on vocals. Their Hit ‘Bazaar’ with KSHMR reached the Beatport Overall #1 released by global heavy-weight imprint Spinnin’ Records. Marnik teamed up once again with KSHMR on ‘Mandala’ which also reached another Beatport #1 as the new ‘Official Sunburn 2016 Anthem’ where the duo took over the Mainstage in Pune.
However, Marnik are no strangers to the Top 10, having landed comfortably in these high ranks with releases from their Blasterjaxx collaboration ‘Heart Starts To Beat’ to ‘Jump Around’ with Tony Junior or ‘Orion’ with Lush & Simon, a personal favorite of Armin van Buuren.
Marnik also collaborated with Don Diablo on ‘Children Of A Miracle’ which has amassed over 30 million streams on all musical platforms.
Lately, Marnik just released their newest single 'Burn' on Astralwerks / Universal.. The song already hit more than 4 Million plays on Spotify in just a few weeks.
Beyond their success as producers, Marnik toured Europe with Steve Aoki, hitting coveted destinations including Pacha Ibiza, Ushuaia Ibiza, Queen Paris, and BCM Planet Dance in Mallorca, Spain. Notable highlights scope from their set at Nameless Music Festival in Italy to their juggernaut performance at Tomorrowland in Belgium, marking a career milestone.
Q: Can you take us inside the production process and share some insight about your inspiration/sketch, songwriting, and key elements of your music ?
A: There are different ways of doing it. For us, we want to chase after a feeling, something that just feels good.. The feeling directs all creativity. The beat comes first. Our job is just to listen to it, and let it tell us what should be right then, where the drums should go, where the melodies should go. It's all by feel.
Q: You’ve collaborated with many artists whom others would only dream of, from KSHMR to Don Diablo to Blasterjaxx. Which collab of yours has been your favorite and why? Who is one artist you still hope to work with one day?
A: Working with KSHMR was natural for us as we have a very similar approach to making music. “Bazaar” will still be our favorite collaboration and that was the very first big one which stood out. We really enjoyed making “Children Of A Miracle” with Don Diablo as well. We would love to collaborate with Armin van Buuren!
Q: Your latest release “Burn” has seen massive success and the Spotify numbers are incredible! What’s the reception to the track been like through your eyes?
A: Just seeing how well it's going on Spotify is really satisfying. To be honest, we are not that surprised about the reception to the track as our closest friends continuously told us about how much they loved it.
Q: This year you’ve enjoyed an incredible run of shows worldwide, so what have been some highlights and why?
A: We have played a lot in Asia in the past few months and we have to say that we love touring there. Playing at RFM Somnii Festival on the main stage was an unbelievable experience. It was unreal seeing so many people reacting to our music.
Q: What has you excited for 2018? What are two goals you guys hope to achieve next year?
A: We hope to tour over in the USA at some point in 2018...and as always to keep our fans excited and continuously surprised by our releases!
Keep an eye out for Marnik as they continue expand their sound in the years to come!
