Marley Carroll is known among his peers as “the producer’s producer,” and his time is coming. A classically trained pianist and percussionist, but never content to color inside the
lines, he became the youngest ever to win the title of Best Scratch DJ for his home state of North Carolina - at 17. In the ten years since, he has has never stopped pushing, undergoing a full transformation into a veteran electronic producer, vocalist, and live performer. His self-produced 2007 debut album Melanaster was the result of meticulous bedroom
alchemy, recalling a lost Radiohead LP submerged in ten feet of saltwater. The album’s sound is found somewhere between the beautiful haze of early Nineties shoegaze rock (My Bloody
Valentine) and early 2000’s IDM (Autechre, Squarepusher). Smeared, melancholy pop songs tethered to abstract electronic rhythms, what NPR called “gorgeously subdued glitch-pop.”
In 2011, Carroll truly came into his own as a producer and live performer. He developed a solo PA set to bring a more raw and improvisatory vision of his music to live audiences, combining vocals, turntables, hardware controllers, and live Moog synth. Carroll’s onstage performances are exercises in understated talent that mix live vocals with stunning and unorthodox turntablist skills over a bed of sophisticated electronica. In 2012, he toured with forward-thinking producers like Shigeto, Dabrye, and Emancipator, and appeared at groundbreaking music festivals across the country (Moogfest, Decibel, Coachella).
