The Australian born modern composer, producer and arranger Nick Marks is best known for his scoring work in feature films, television, podcasts and commercials, as well as being a frequent behind-the-scenes collaborator with New York’s top line of musicians. His approach bends genres and styles, taking a cinematic approach to melding jazz infused themes with orchestral textures, electronica elements and lo-fi beats.

‘Dorongo’ is a futuristic aural metropolis. Driving bass lines, modern jazz rhythm section, stoic horns and evergreen flute fuse with explosive synths, mashed game-boy beats, and flying arpeggios that glide in the air like hovercrafts. Underpinning it all is a lush orchestra that invisibly embraces and elevates listeners on a soaring through-composed journey. Think Flying Lotus and Jacob Collier combining to write the latest Blade Runner soundtrack, supervised by Thundercat, recorded by the Metropole Orkest. This cross-pollination of artists reflects the sound and vision of Marks, who wrote, arranged, produced and performed on the track.
