We are so happy to give the opportunity to some upcoming producers who we are sure you’ll be hearing more from in the future.”

The Eclypse Records label bosses have been busy working on their own music on the label as well. Feenixpawl recently released a new single, “Quicksand” with APEK,  which continues to grow across all streaming platforms, with the track being added to several select Spotify playlists, as well as play-listing looks from Proximity and Zoedic.

Check ‘Em Out: Marcus Santoro – “Bring You Home”

Melbourne’s Marcus Santoro lights up the house-music fuse boxes at the mere age of just 20. Aligning a mixture of rave and progressive house euphoria behind the console and within the locked doors of the studio he has truly laid down the law on musical enthusiasts and their playlists globally.

Today, the young DJ and producer arrives with a soaring new track, “Bring You Home,” featuring Michael Paynter, via Eclypse Records.

Sweeping unique sounds and impeding on heavy vocals, large chords and melodies to fuel momentum from dance music devotees far and wide – Marcus’ talent has emerged. A producer from the young age of 12, the inspiration flooded in reeling from a close but older and influential family friend. Pining to get on this bedroom decks and educate the neighborhood, the sounds came organically. It wasn’t long before his child audio assets in Michael Jackson, Coldplay and Daft Punk fell incredibly in tune with his own exploration of the musical mile. Taking to the studio before his teens, Dirty South and Axwell expanded his drive, reaffirming his beat. Unstoppable, the Santoro profile has been tapped by Hardwell’s Revealed Recordings, Ultra Records, Sony, Warner, Armada Music where his studio aptitude is imprinting itself on airwaves. ‘All the Way’ with The Potbelleez made its way to the Top 10 ‘Future Hits Chart’ on Shazam and on radio across the nation. His winning remix of ‘Lost & Found’ by Sick Individuals made its way to #19 on Beatport’s Progressive House Top 100. Marcus Santoro isn’t too far behind on support either, raking in names like Tiesto, Hardwell, Dirty South, Martin Garrix, Nicky Romero and more..

Eclypse Records, launched in April of 2015 by Jason Forte and Josh Soon and Aden Forte (of Feenixpawl), has seen a huge rise since it’s inception. YourEDM mentioned, “it seems as though they had has the Midas touch in 2015” with the release of their first label compilation, and it seems that 2016 is set to be no different.
