There is no denying that Darius Syrossian does things his own way. In the modern world, even the freshest faces in the scene have managers, PRs and social media teams all working for them. These teams orchestrate every post, every interview and every word spoken by their artist. Although it’s nice that some professionalism has come to the all-too-often lackadaisical dance world, it can all get a little too stale. Too often people keep their mouth shut in order to make friends with people in high places.
Master of the graft
Marshmello is one of the most Marmite figures in dance music. As loved by his hordes of followers, the ‘Mellogang’, as much as he garners the ire of the underground faithful that feel a novelty costume isn’t a legitimate form of artistic impression, it’s inarguable that he’s produced one of EDM’s biggest success stories since bursting onto the scene in 2015.
By now the history of electronic music and its journey into clubs, concert venues, stadiums and homes worldwide is a well-established narrative.

Technics has revealed details of the “standard” version its new SL-1200GR turntable, at the CES show in Las Vegas, which follows the SL-1200G that was released last year.
No release date has currently been set, but Technics describe the new SL-1200GR as “inheriting the technology of the SL-1200G, which was developed as a reference direct-drive turntable for the next generation.”
Technics announced their SL-1200G turntable in January, as the first in their 1200 series since the MK6 in 2008. Now it has finally been made available to buy – but only in Germany.
Costing €4,000 per turntable, the new SL-1200G costs twice as much as the previous 1210s, a price tag that forced Technics’ CTO, Tetsuya Itani, to explain why the new turntables are so expensive in January.
