Marcus Raute: Brilliance in sound
If you like house music, you know that it is all about the feeling. If you have ever listened to Marcus Raute’s sets, you will know there is more than just a feeling. Therefore, it would not be an overstatement, if we say that Marcus Raute is the prince of house music.
Marcus, tell us who is the man behind the music artist Marcus Raute really?
My name is Marco Gioiello. I am 25years old and was born in Naples, the renowned capital of Electronic music, which is located in southern Italy. My grandfather’s name was Marcus Raute and I decided to take it up a “stage name”. My day time job is “credit manager”, after sundown – I am a DJ. My first attempt to DJ was on the eve of my thirteenth birthday.
How did you start making music?
I have been making my own music since 2005. After my fascination with music combined with the clear concept of what does a good track must sound like, I started composing for pleasure.
Which is your favorite music style and why?
I think that you can never stop learning from music. I need music as I need air. Although I like to listen to everything from classical to rock music, I’m pretty much influenced by Deep and Tech House with some “minimal” elements. To be honest, the core of my musical knowledge is made with the sound of house music. I think that house music with all its facets, is the most “original” genre that has ever existed.
