Marlequin is an electronic pop-project made by the danish young producer Theis Vesterløkke, whose falsetto marks the catchy melodies placed on the steady electronic beats and 80s synthesizers.
For several years Marlequin didn’t reach the public but lived and developed in a basement north of danish capital Copenhagen. In March 2012 the national danish radio station DR (Danish Radio) P3 chose Marlequin to be amongst the finalists in their annual competition for upcoming artists called KarriereKanonen (“the Career Cannon”). This resulted in airplay and interview live on DR P3 and lot of attention. Amongst other things this manifested shows at the danish stree
t festival Mejlgade for Mangfoldighed 2012, “Huset i Magstræde”, VEGA’s “Ideal Bar” etc. and some publicity by the danish internet blog “Undertoner.dk“. In the summer of 2012 Marlequin made a deal with Biologic Records about publishing the two tracks “As I Say” and “Needle Friend” in an EP, which also includes a remix made by belgian producer DC Salas. The EP is set to be released December 17th 2012.
