DJ-producer Eric Estornel is a veritable chameleon of electronic dance music. In a career spanning almost two decades, he's shifted musical styles as often as he has monikers.
His extensive discography boasts atmospheric techno as Maetrik, twisted electro as Mariel Ito, and moody deep house as Maceo Plex, all with a relentless innovative edge.
Born in Texas, Estornel made a name for himself in the '90s American EDM scene. But he has since migrated to Valencia, Spain, positioning himself at the center of European action.
