About marq electronica
Marq Electronica is a one-man music machine, based in the North-East, UK. Having organised musical events and performed for over a decade now, Marq has mustered the confidence to release his long awaited solo material. With the support of his bandmates and fellow local artists, Marq dives headfirst into his first solo project with the pure funk anthem 'Get Down and Work It Out.'
"My sound is influenced heavily by RnB and electronic artists from Missy Elliott to Daft Punk, Fever Ray to Goldfrapp and amazing groups like Massive Attack"
"So far my greatest solo achievement was performing at the second stage for Pride on Tyne a few years ago and more recently setting up a “Musicians Against Homelessness” gig where we raised a lot of money and I got to work alongside some fantastic local electronic artists"
About the Track
"When I wrote this single, I was listening to a lot of house music and out clubbing every weekend and wanted to capture the fun and energy and unity of those amazing nights. However, this song almost didn't happen. I had a few spare hours of studio time that I had paid for and so we worked on the track because I wanted a funky, fun song not as serious as the other music I had recorded. It just grew in collaboration with my brilliant producer at the now defunct Rock It Records. We both really knew what the other wanted from the track and it was great to have that synchronicity and understanding. We had a lot of fun creating it."
