About Marco Avendaño

This brand stands for an electrifying, danceable and rousing House with 20 years of international experience. Born 1982 in Switzerland. 1998 - It all started as an Oldschool Trance DJ. At this time still under his two artist names DJ Liquid-X and Liquid NG. Equipped with equipment from Technics and Pioneer Marco started his first steps. In his now over 20 years of career as a DJ, Marco lived through many epochs of electronic dance music, such as Oldschool Trance, early rave, Acid, the early House, UK Garage and even harder subgenres like Techno or Minimal. At the beginning there were only smaller events where he played. But with time came offers for first bigger clubs and parties. Since 2002 he plays regularly at big events and in well-known clubs in Switzerland. Vanilla Club, gateOne, Nachtwerk, Utopia, Privilege, Prestige, Via Felsenau, Dachstock or Stufenbau are only some of his references. Now well established in the Swiss trance scene, it was time to build on his passion and set off for new shores. 2003 - the year of his first appearances on foreign soil. Germany, Austria and Spain were rocked in the summer and autumn months. The feedback was so positive that it was only a matter of time before Marco would be booked overseas. Faster than expected, already one year later, in 2004, followed his tour through Mexico. What a gigantic experience. It was also Mexico that made Marco concentrate not only on trance. The new sounds, which the Mexican DJs played, had done it to Marco. He wanted to bring new, refreshing and in Switzerland rarely played music closer to his audience. Because one thing is as certain as the Amen in church: Marco is developing, just as electronic dance music is constantly evolving. From then on he devoted himself to the house. His sound now sounds dirty, groovy and full of energy. A new artist's name, which should make clear the demarcation to his previous style, the trance, was quickly found: Don Juan deMarco. 2005: Meanwhile Marco has also established himself in the underground house scene. Marco has also matured into a co-producer. Since 2006 he has been producing his own music together with Daniel Gut (Switzerland), better known under his pseudonym Solar Project. Their first joint release :tension: was released at the beginning of 2007 on the Swedish online label DAIF records. The release :radial emotion: was released in autumn of the same year. Solar Project & DJ Liquid-X also contributed several remixes of well-known DAIF rec. artists. Some of them were played by trance greats like Armin Van Buuren, Tiesto, MIKE or Sean Tyas. Between 2008 and 2011 Marco retired and selected his gigs. He spent a lot of time in the studio exploring new techniques and possibilities. Contrary to the trend, he turned away from Pioneer DJ mixers and has relied on the unmatched sound quality of Allen & Heath ever since. Since 2009 Marco plays exclusively digital with Traktor Scratch Pro. The combination of an almost endless playlist, the certainty to always have enough tracks without carrying boxes of black gold around and the analog vinyl feeling makes him blossom again. Marco, now on the road as Marco Avendaño, concentrated on an innovative musical style that was absolutely unknown in Switzerland at the time: Progressive House. After a long break Marco successfully made his comeback in 2012. New, fresh sounds and with new motivation he knows how to inspire the audience. Marco's sound is still not everyday. He loves to make his playlist exciting and mixes soulful vocalhouse, deep tekhouse or well-known commercial hits in unknown remixes into his legendary progressive house sets. So much be sure: A set by Marco is not an 0815 DJ set. He impresses with his unmistakable sound and his preference for flowing transitions. His trademark of butter-soft, often minute-long transitions, existing since 1998, still distinguishes him today and is an integral part of his DJ sets. Less is often more, he thinks. He focuses on quality, not quantity and is always ready to break new ground. After 2015 it became quieter again and Marco focused on other passions. Since the end of 2018, Marco is back and focuses on selected events in which he plays funky, deep and especially Tech House. 2019 sees the release of his three new tech and deep house tracks 'Filtered', 'Rescue' and 'Selected Truth'.
