"I'm always travelling and working on camps so the LCD-2C are the perfect choice to go. I love the tones and I really feel I can rely on them."  - Marlku
Here's our talk with Marlku:
Can you pick out any highlights from your work that you're particularly proud of?

Hablamos Poco Hacemos Mucho from Seven Kayne & Duki, Pintao from Duki & Ysy A & Rei, Muriendome from Duki & Khea. 

How would you define your main role on most of the projects you work on these days?

I produce, arrange, and sometimes write and mix the songs I'm involved with.

How did you get started in music? What kind of music did you listen to while growing up and how has that progressed?

I started my relationship with music in punk rock bands as a teenager. Then bought my first laptop and started producing some beats and loops for myself. I listened to pop punk and nu metal a lot, and those genres still are a huge influence nowadays in some of my beats.

Can you name any factors that influenced the course of your musical life? Heroes, role models, moments, interactions, etc?

I think having worked with Duki and Khea are big milestones in my career. Kanye West would be something close to a hero in my approach with music and style in general.

Can you briefly describe a moment of frustration from your past work, and what you may have done to overcome the obstacles? Would you approach it differently now?

Inspiration is everywhere, only sometimes it takes longer and requires more energy so there is no frustration if you are in the path of creativity.

Is there any gear you find yourself turning to most when working on a project? What are some of your favorite tools/instruments recently?

I love my Moog Minitaur and my Arturia Analog Lab V, those are my go-to friends in the studio.

Do you have any words of wisdom for people who might aspire toward a similar path for their own careers?

Work hard, trust your vision and listen to different kinds of music.

How long have you been working with headphones, and how do you typically use them in your workflow?

Headphones are key in my workflow, I use them while recording, mixing and I usually keep a couple of different sounding pairs for check my work.

Do you have any additional comments or stories you want to share?

I wanted to thank Javier Fracchia, a mentor in the world of sound for me and a lot of colleagues, for linking me up with such a big brand as Audeze. And thanks to Soundlux Audio in Miami, where I got the headphones.

How have your Audeze headphones affected your work?

Definitively. I'm always traveling and working on camps so the LCD-2C are the perfect choice to go. I love the tones and I really feel I can rely on them.

Can you tell us what you've been working on with them recently?

I mixed some songs already, and my album 555+. 'Fernet' from Quevedo and Rei and some projects we are working on with Cazzu.
