Marco Mestichella is a 24 year old music artist originally from Italy and now based in London, UK, where he’s been producing music since 2009. Calling his music ‘ILLPOP’, he describes the sounds as being a blend of trip-hop, soft rock, retro-pop and cinematic soundtracks. Marco’s musical influences are mainly from the 70’s and 90’s. Portishead, Isaac Hayes, Pink Floyd, Madonna & George Michael are just a few of the artists Marco borrows from. He works with co-producer, Bristolian arranger/composer Joe Rodwell for all his music.
Marco released his debut EP The Day I Killed My Ego in 2013, containing the two video-singles “Treason” and “I Should Have Stayed Home Tonight”, and his new single “Fragments Of Light“ is currently available online. Those songs and others will also be made available via blocSonic’s fortyFive series.
Playing regular gigs with his live band, he will be releasing new singles, videos and a blocSonic EP in 2015!
