Marco Berto – Defex

SR048 – Digital
Release date: Feb 2020
Marco Berto - Defex


This release comes from the experienced Swiss DJ and producer Marco Berto from Winterthur.
With many publications on Steve Lawler’s Viva Music, Stefano Noferini’s DPE, the Italo label Go Deeva or the latest on the renowned US house label King Street Sounds, Marco Berto always manages to bridge the gap between classic house and techhouse.
With the Defex EP, however, he is clearly moving towards a reduced tech house this time. The EP contains three tracks including remixes by Martin Landsky, Dachshund and Mastra.

Defex – Original
The driving techhouse Track manages to keep the groove up from start to finish with reduced chords, bars and a rolling deep bassline.

Defex – Martin Landsky Remix
Martin Landsky gives the original a dubious note. He skillfully keeps the drive of his previous releases high. The accent is clearly on the chords, which offer trained hearing a wide variety with reverb and delay effects.

Morning Rain – Original
The number with a crisp kick, acid bassline, classic string elements, bars and a vocal clearly indicate Marco Berto's roots in classic house music.

Morning Rain - Dachshund Remix
Dachshund focuses on the synth elements and manages to disenchant the Funky note of the Original 303 Bassline, which gives the track a nice rolling note.

Morning Rain - Mastra Remix
The producer and DJ from Berne once again shows that his experience enables him to put his stamp on an original with great attention to detail. A flat dubhouse number with a good portion of groove.

Fusion – Original
Classic techhouse meets tribal elements and a repetitive vocal. Simply put, this creates a never-ending journey into dark rooms with lots of smoke and flashes of lightning.
