FRESH: ‘Crazy Fool’ – MARQ Electronica

MARQ Electronica is not a “Crazy Fool”!

90’s dance

British producer MARQ Electronica (Mark Ouseburn) from Newcastle Upon Tyne brings some old skool 90’s dance rhythms into 2021 with his brand new track, “Crazy Fool”.

Making his debut last year with “Get Down And Work It Out”, Marq demonstrates the era he remembers well with piano based dance/club anthems of the early 90’s with an award winning producer from that decade!

“Crazy Fool” has a house vibe to it and a funky bass with that trademark repeatitive chorus hook we remember so well. Marq hooked up with Brit and Ivor Novello award winning producer Simon Ellis, who has worked with the likes of Spice Girls, S Club 7 and Little Mix jsut to give it that added sparkle that a big hit deserves!

Mark tells us: “I wanted to write a dance track that talks about the fun aspect of being crazy and silly when you are in love. I explained the vibe I was going for with the unmixed version I sent to Simon and he really got the fun but sophisticated romantic vibe I wanted for the track. It was so good to be more soulful vocally than I had been on my song ‘Wildlife’ and explore another soundscape. 2021 is going to be a year of more releases and live performances. I’ve invested in lights and video backdrops to engage an audience on another level and I have a wealth of experience in live work and I am itching to get back out there after a struggle with Covid-19″.

So perhaps you’ve read an article or two that I’ve written and wondered “just who is this character?”! Well I thought maybe it would be time to introduce myself and what I’m all about. Well it’s all about the music! Having been born in the late 1970’s I was heavily influenced by my parent’s love of ‘popular’ music and rock and roll of the 1950’s and 60’s. My Mother always said she should of married Elvis and my father was, and is still, in love with Sandie Shaw! But while my Dad’s tastes stopped in about 1967, my Mum carried on loving music throughout the 70’s, 80’s and beyond. My first memory was playing on the floor whilst my Mother was ironing one day with the radio on, and hearing ABBA’s “Super Trouper” dancing my nappy off to it! Maybe that’s where it all went wrong…?! Having been subjected to all and sundry in my infant years, I finally found my feet in the mid-1980’s and began ‘partying’ to the likes of Culture Club, Stevie Wonder(!), Elkie Brooks and Bananarama to name but a few! The year 1987 would have a profound effect on my listening tastes and from thereon in my life would be dominated with buying and listening to music. Any number of outstanding songs were released and listened to that year, most notably “Nothing’s Gonna Stop Us Now”, “I Wanna Dance With Somebody” and “La Isla Bonita”. That Summer my mind was completely taken over with music and sounds I’d never heard before and I was totally taken in by it all. My father would say “whaaar rubbish you got on naaaaao?” (I’m from Norfolk!) but I was hooked. And it continued so for the rest of the decade and the next. At the beginning of 1988 I ‘met’ my true love and the singer I’ve worshipped more than any other artist or group. You may know of her. She’s from Australia…! Aside from pop music, my tastes are many and varied and continues to grow and expand as I ‘mature’ in age. I’ve always been heavily interested in films and in particular the mechanics of film making and of course film music, so scores and subsequently orchestral music takes up a lot of my tastes and collection. 90’s dance and club tunes also takes up much of the space in my head and I’m surprised my brain has stopped shaking from the years of abuse it took being dragged to nightclubs, often three times a week in my 20’s! I find with each year that passes I regress back to my youth and of course the 1980’s. 80’s music dominates and the lust to see as many 80’s acts and singers play live now is insatiable. I’m still getting into the groove as much as every breath I take, but I’m never gonna give up listening to my heart and pumping up the volume, simply because I LOVE MUSIC…any kind of music!
