Maceo Plex is set to revive his electro Mariel Ito alias after 12 years
Considering the recent resurgence of electro, and more widespread attention given to acts like Helena Hauff and the seminal DJ Stingray, it’s fitting that Eric Estornel —otherwise known as Maceo Plex — is reviving his electro-focused alias Mariel Ito for the first time in 12 years.
Estornel returns to this project in a big way, as he’s set to release two new EPs — one on R&S records and one on his Lone Romantic Label — and a retrospective album on R&S records, entitled 2000-2005.
His first EP, 2e Komst, via Lone Romantic, will arrive on January 26. The retrospective album, 2000-2005, is set to arrive on R&S in May, and the second EP will follow later in the summer.
Listeners can get a taste of Estornel’s electro and IDM release on the new cut “Process,” which is taken from the upcoming retrospective album 2000-2005 due out in May of 2018 on R&S.
