Hi Mar+Mer – welcome to House Music With Love. Where are we speaking to you from today?
Thanks for having us, you’re speaking with us from Dubai currently.

Tell us a little bit about your background, and how you came to be music producers and DJs?
‘Mar’ from Miami was born into a musical family with father being a recording artist at RCA and his love for music propelled him into a musical career. ‘Mer’ from London a classically trained musician and his passion for electronic music saw him performing around the London club circuit at a young age.

With both creative minds combined and production skills we connected and never looked back.

What inspires you the most when making music? How do you stay inspired?
Inspiration comes from everywhere for us – travelling, events, experiences, music we hear from around the world and its a great thing that we can bring all these influences and shape them into a new creation when in the studio.

What can you tell us about your new EP on Monaberry – what went into the creation?
The track ‘Illusion’ is a synth lead 90’s influenced anthem and ‘In Time’ a euphoric vocal with a bold synth lead. We wanted to create a memorable feeling with both tracks especially with catchy melodies to keep the vibe uplifting and euphoric.

What fascinates you most about being a DJ? Do you inspire each other in the booth?

Its exciting to be able to perform around the word and spread musical healing and joy. We do inspire each other in the booth as we don’t always know what track the other will be playing and this is exciting and spontaneous.

What is the best venue you have played and why?
The best venue so far has to be Heart Club in Ibiza, the magical energy and vibe of the island with the production of the club was amazing.

Beyond the Illusion EP release, what is coming up next in the world of Mar+Mer?
We have been busy working in the studio and have a few more releases coming up in 2023 which we are very excited about. Also looking forward to sharing and performing our music around the world this year and seeing joyful people dancing and having a great time makes us happy.
