Italian-born Marco Sartorelli produces deep, spacy, hypnotic techno as Marco Shuttle, drawing from influences such as American minimalism and dub as well as acid house and electro.
Active as a club promoter and DJ since his teenage years, he moved to London in order to attend Saint Martins and earn an M.A. in fashion design. He began a DJ residency at Süd Electronic, and launched his own weekly event series. His first single, "Numash," appeared on MiniSketch in 2007. This was followed by Don't Laugh at Me on Serialism Records
(2008), "The Horror" on Brut!
(2010), and the club hit "The Vox Attitude" on Färden Records (2011). In 2012, Clone
released Shuttle's All Around the Fires EP, and he launched his Eerie label with the EPs Modula and There's No Point... That's the Point. Simmetria Delle Stringhe and an EP of "The Vox Attitude" remixes followed in 2013, as Shuttle's booking schedule filled up, with appearances at noted clubs such as Fabric (London), Berghain (Berlin), The Bunker (New York), and others. "Sing Like a Bird," an out-of-body experience on wax by Peter van Hoesen
