Recently, Maceo Plex has shared the full details of his forthcoming retrospective Mariel Ito album called ‘2000-2005’ that is scheduled to drop on October 26 via R&S Records.
Earlier this year, Eric Estornel (aka Maceo Plex) announced the return of his electro alias Mariel Ito after 12 years with the two-track EP ‘2e Komst’ on his Lone Romantic label. This project started in 2005 and throughout the year he released a handful of productions and an album via imprints such as SCSI-AV and Modern Love before puting the alias on hold from 2006 onwards.
The ten-track LP contains unreleased material that Estornel created under the alias in the mid-00’s. The album marks the resuscitation of the Mariel Ito while exploring the debut of the project and its connection with his Cuban and Miami roots.
According to Estornel, “R&S helped sculpt my taste growing up in the ’90s. So many seminal records came out back then that were really ahead of their time. Last year, when I decided I would not continue doing my Mosaic party in Ibiza, I knew I would have more time to finally relaunch it and began writing new material. Thanks to R&S, I can now release the music I was making back then in the form of a retrospective album and start up again where I left off.
