Young Marco

SOLAR STAGE

There was a time when Marco Sterk aka Young Marco’s talents as a DJ and producer were among Amsterdam’s best-kept secrets. For well over a decade, he plied his trade, largely unheralded, on the city’s underground dance music scene. These days, he is widely known around the world for his ballsy, genre-defying eclecticism, playing sets that join the dots between everything from tropical rhythms, afro gems and quirky Middle Eastern disco, to lost proto-house, throbbing techno and industrial-strength jack-tracks.
