2016 was the year that Marco Faraone broke into the techno mainstream, consolidating years of hard work that begun, aged 14, behind the hi-fi setup at his Tuscan family home. It has been an organic rise, the motor of which has largely been his own intuition as he experimented with different sounds and styles, chalking up releases on a diverse battery of labels including Moon Harbour, Get Physical, Desolat and Ovum in the process.
In this interview, recorded at our London studio, the Uncage boss talks about his trajectory, from those early jams on Reason – when his friends were off playing Playstation – to his later gravitation towards hardware. He also offers an instructive and in-depth look into his creative process as he breaks down, step by step, two huge tracks, ‘Climax’ and ‘Over the Clouds’ from his 2016 EP for Drumcode.
