Maceo Plex has announced that he is working on an upcoming album under his mysterious alias Mariel Ito, which first surfaced on our radars at the beginning of the noughties.
To kick off the revival he will be releasing a two EP under the moniker at the end of January on his own new label Lone Romantic, which he kicked off last year with the ‘Sonar’ release under Maceo Plex.
The album will include unreleased pieces dating back to the original Ito project, with the extended collection of work will be available in May and will be released on the esteemed R&S label.
You can listen to one of the upcoming tracks below which was dropped on Ito’s soundcloud last night.
The Mariel Ito alias first came about before he hit more widespread audiences under Maceo Plex and has been dormant since. Electro is reaching a peak in popularity, more so now than ever, so it seems as though the American has chosen the perfect time to reignite his former flame.
