DJ/Producer Maarcos and Sony Music Australia EDM director, Jon Hanlon have launched a new EDM label called Fuze Records.
The new outfit will focus on ‘big room’ and ‘progressive house’.
New York-based Maarcos (Mark Kwong) was producer of and member of EDM group Those Usual Suspects in his native Australia.
The group has had releases on Bob Sinclar's Africanism, Ministry of Sound, and Defected Record labels.
Kwong’s manager and label partner Jon Hanlon is the founder of Konkrete Agency, which represents Australian and international acts such as Hardwell, Nicky Romero and Laidback Luke.
“The label is the next step in my career," said Kwong. "I've learned so much from guys like Dragan (Dirty South) and can't thank people like him and Jon (Hanlon) enough for helping me get where I am now. This label will allow me to put out music that I love - music with groove, melodies and passion, but big!"
Hanlon said: “I’ve always loved guys like Steve Angello and Seb Ingrosso. They always had that unique sound that makes me think of Ibiza circa 2008 - that real summer sound that evokes emotion. Maarcos brings that same vibe and energy to his production and having Fuze allows us to share this vibe with the rest of the world.”
The label will release its first record on July 21 with Pyro, by Maarcos. The release will be followed by a planned Pyro tour as well as Fuze-branded events in the future.
