RA.835 Marco Weibel

RA Podcast | June 6, 2022

Marco Weibel is the epitome of modesty. Over the past decade, the New York artist has quietly amassed a loyal following through expansive DJ sets that touch on everything from spiritual jazz to disco, but rather than credit himself, he lets the tunes speak for themselves. This humble attitude has won him the respect of veterans such as Lefto, as well as a growing fanbase from all corners of the musical spectrum. When he’s not DJing, Weibel curates nights at various New York venues and co-runs Darker Than Wax, a label based out of Singapore (where he was born and raised). His selections showcase rhythm and texture over drops, but he always has an arsenal of radiant house cuts or UK garage to fire up a crowd. Cavernous crates aside, the cadence of his sets is perhaps their most distinguishing feature. On his weekly shows at Lot Radio, Hawaiian funk is followed by broken beat while at the club, 2-step spills into dembow techno and rich amapiano. While his mixes and performances usually start out on the melodic side, his RA Podcast switches things up. Unleashing a whirlwind of jungle before moving onto ’90s-flavored house and other loopy styles, his session highlights local talents with plenty of delightful transitions throughout. Peter Brown’s spacey soul flows into Aquarian’s pulverising breaks, Ayesha’s percussive techno precedes heart-tugging house and heavy dub morphs into Kerri Chandler’s acid. Fluid and rolling, this is a true digger’s delight. Read more: http://ra.co/podcast/835 @marcoweibel
