It’s been just a few days since we heard about the passing of one of drum & bass’ most respected producers, Marcus Intalex. It doesn’t seem real that another one of our musical heroes has passed on so soon. I have always felt a huge connection to his music because I appreciate that he went in a much more melodic direction when everyone else was trying to cane you to death with darkness. He practically invented the liquid funk sub-genre at the turn of the century.
Marcus Intalex really was a drum & bass titan. Whether with his label Soul:R, his solo and remix work, his collaborations with ST Files (as M.I.S.T), DRS, or Calibre it was always a must buy. He and ST Files did more to get the ladies back into drum & bass than just about anyone else and that in turn led to it’s resurgence.
In the last few years he’d really been pumping out techno tracks under the alias of Trevino on his Revolv:R label. He took the chops he’d built in DnB and applied them to his techno work and it made him an even bigger legend.
We’re going to miss hearing new music from Marcus, but his legacy lives on with his music. We want to showcase just a few of our Marcus Intalex favorites from over the years…
We love and miss you Mr. Intalex.
