MARMO is an improvisational live-techno collaboration between Christian Duka and Marco Maldarella. The project was born out of a coincidence thanks to TimeShift, a mind-awakening event organisation of the city of Bologna, Italy. Coming from a background playing in a metal band over the past years, MARMO is an artistic endeavour that sees in live improvisation the ideal outlet for the duo’s own interpretation of dark, atmospheric and polyrhythmic techno music. Progression has a spectacular habit of breaking new ground. With multiple collaborations with Rumah, including a debut and solo releases on James Ruskin’s Blueprint Records, a signing to Mord and Sleaze and a flight booked for Berlin, 2016 has been a big year. Right now he’s got one word on his mind: further. With influences from Blawan to Beethoven, Progression likes to live on the darker periphery of techno, with a muscular, mesmeric sound that gets under your skin and breathes. Even though techno music was not the dominating music scene, Greek artist Cirkle remains a humble follower throughout the years. Techno in his eyes, is affiliated with the evolution of the sound in the music industry and its futuristic perspective, but also related to technology and minimalism. Cirkle collected vinyl and found time to DJ, and organize local techno events. His passion for music made him start his own studio where he spends most of his time the last few years.
