Marco Sterk is one of those annoyingly talented individuals who seem to congregate in Amsterdam; if you’ve admired the record sleeve of a Rush Hour release, it’s invariably his design that’s impressed you, whilst his digging and DJing skills resulted in what’s still one of our most popular podcasts to date. And then there is his production work under the Young Marco guise, which he’s been cultivating over the course of some four years, with output on Rush Hour, Studio Soulrock and his own Hand Of God label.
It’s with ESP Institute that the Young Marco sound has really prospered however, with a clutch of 12?s and remixes for the label since debuting with Nonono back at the tail end of 2011. News of a debut album from Sterk for Andrew Hogge’s label has hardly been a guarded secret, with the producer himself first alluding to it in his aforementioned mix for this site. RA have now revealed the album is due for release next month ahead of the previously announced Blasé long player from Los Angeles pair Secret Circuit and Suzanne Kraft. Entitled Biology, the album features seven all new productions from Young Marco that according to the label ”transcend genre and taste despite being wholly instrumental”.
