Astronomar has been a stalwart in the US club scene for many years lending his production efforts to labels like Mad Decent, Fools Gold, OWSLA, Dim Mak, Slow Roast, BNR Trax, Enchufada, Ministry of Sound, Top Billin and his own label Main Course (plus remix work for countless other imprints) and gaining support from many of the industry’s leading tastemakers like Diplo, Skrillex, GTA, Clockwork, Congorock, A-Trak, Zeds Dead and Martin Garrix, just to name a few. His massive remix of Wax Motif & Neoteric’s ‘Go Deep’ (Dim Mak) blew up in 2013 after nightly plays from Skrillex & Boys Noize, including Ultra Music Fest and 2 years in a row at Coachella; it was also included on Skrillex’s 2013 Essential Mix for BBC Radio1! His 2013 Mutant Club EP [Main Course] drew support from A-trak, Congorock, Torro Torro, Salva and your favorite djs favorite dj. Needless to say Mar is always a few steps ahead of the curve when it comes to new & exciting sounds, and when he isn’t touring the US & Internationally, he stays busy as the head A&R of Main Course Records; without question the hottest new boutique label in club music. His remix of Wax Motif & Neoteric’s ‘Go Deep’ became a set staple for Skrillex & Boys Noize’s live show, and echoed the stages of Coachella, Ultra Music Festival and was included on Skrillex’s 2013 Essential Mix for BBC Radio 1. He joined Diplo in Las Vegas, as the only special guest invited to played his residency at the world-famous club XS, plus saw prime slot times at both EDC Las Vegas and Paradiso Festivals in 2013. This year also saw him join forces with Neoteric & Bot on their own boutique label, Main Course. Already 6 releases deep, with another 10 planned, it is ‘the’ label to watch for diverse, cutting edge releases.
Diplo and DJ Fresh tapped Astronomar remix their international hit ‘Earthquake’ in May, which will soon see release on Ministry of Sound. A collabo EP with the mightly Sinden is also scheduled for release on Boys Noize’s BNR Trax label later this year. After a long run of festival appearances this summer, Mar will be heading down under for an Australian tour, and across North America in the coming months. While we wait for the rest of the world to catch on, Astronomar is a name to look out for in the new US club scene. This is that next shit.
