Marascia starts his artistic carreer in the mid 90s working actively for some independent labels. Among some of his first house music experiments the land of rhythm EP gets immediate international feedback. From this moment on his name starts appearing on the most influential djs charts and playlists. He works as a producer as well as a remixer and he is asked to remix tracks by Todd Terry, John Aquaviva and Richie Awtin on legendary labels such as Illegal and Strictly rhythm.
He then starts djing in the most important clubs in England, Spain, Germany, France and even Russia. But it is only from 1997 that Marascia starts releasing real charts hits. When Ride on the Rhythm was released with the name Blackwood it went straight to number one on the Italian charts and and was top ten in many other countries. Then followed My love for you and Peace. Both tracks were big hits being played on the main radio networks and tv shows. After the Blackwood project he released another single with the name Chase called Obsession. The tracks title was a sort of prediction because he was a huge success becoming a real radio obsession of the late nineties.
Jumping onto the new millennium Marascia gets acquainted with one of the most famous Italian djs of that period who was to become his current executive producer. Meanwhile he writes and produces two tracks for the Brazilian singer Vania Agua y amor e La brisa del mar which have been a dancefloor filler all over the globe. He then begins to work for Stefano Noferinis label Sound4group and starts working on more peculiar tracks in which he adds drums and percussions creating a very original sound that will become a real trend in the underground scene. The result is an explosive mix of electro sound and tribal atmospheres that made tracks like Chemical attraction and Genetically changed a new step in dance music.
With the help of his executive producer Stefano Noferini Marascia works on The Rumbar project alongside with Kortezman, who was also involved in the earlier Blackwood and Chase projects, giving birth to the track A bailar mi gente that was a huge success and got licensed all over the world on labels like Emi, Virgin, Konrad Global Productions e New Records. His style is instantly recognisable and Marascia is the only artist that ever entered the dance charts (over 10 weeks on the Deejay parade) with tribal house tracks creating a sort of little revolution in the dance scene.
In 2002 Marascia releases Shake it that was to be one of the most played dance tracks of that year played on all the major Italian radio networks (radio Deejay, kiss kiss network, radio Italia network) and soon licensed to all the most prestigious foreign labels finally reaching number 8 on the American Billboard dance chart. In a few words Marascia is an international phenomenon that cannot be stopped To be continued ...
