Mariel Ito – 2000-2005


Esteemed electronic producer Eric Estornel recently reignited his much loved electro-centure ‘Mariel Ito’ alias to huge acclaim in the form of a 12″ single which was shortly followed by a retrospective album on the esteemed R&S Records, which has quickly gained support from the likes of Resident Advisor, Mixmag (Electro Album of the Month), DJ Mag (cover feature + Album of the Month), Dancing Astronaut and most notably, an exclusive appearance on the BBC Radio One Essential mix which can be heard below.

“Electro might be in the midst of a revival, but Eric Estornel is no fair-weather fan. The man otherwise known as Maceo Plex was making electro as Mariel Ito as far back as 2004, putting out records on labels like Modern Love and Connaisseur Recordings. His label Lone Romantic is even named after one of those earlier tracks” – Resident Advisor
