Best end-of-the-night tune:
Any Marcel Woods tune will do!
When DJmag tracks Marcel Woods down, long-distance to his Melbourne hotel room, "a very busy time" is how the Musical Madness exponent summarizes his 2010 to date. "I'm currently over here on a national tour promoting my new Godskitchen 3D album, and that's been a great experience. Once I leave, it's home for a few days, probably spent in the studio, and then off for shows in India, Europe, North and South America, all before the end of the year." Things seem to have been equally hectic in other areas of Woods' professional life too The second 'Musical Madness' compilation went on the shelves at the beginning of the summer, which was followed by a series of supporting events in Amsterdam, London, Helsinki, Jakarta, Vancouver and other cities. "All of which came together really well - great nights, each one of them!" beams Marcel. "My label feels like it's going from strength-to-strength, too - it's about to hit its 50th release and we're going to do something special for that, I think". Add to that a strong run of single releases over the last few months: 'Everything', 'The Bottle' and 'Tomorrow', all of which have picked up the kind of support Marcel says he hopes for, and a remix of Tiësto 'Escape Me', which he describes as "a bit of a golden moment! I see these as stepping-stones towards my debut artist album, which I'm working furiously on."
