Maetrik Biography

Eric Estornel, under the names MAETRIK, MARIEL ITO, MACEO PLEX, and simply ESTORNEL - has been contributing to his musical world around him since 1993. Always searching for the future of electronic dance, Eric has never let himself be confined by the rules of styles or genres as he makes his way through such a political and fickle industry.

Originally from the USA and now relocated to Valencia Spain, Eric Estornel is making incredible leaps and strides releasing some of the most devastating yet unique music in the industry. His sudonyms Maetrik, Mariel Ito, Plaex, and now Maceo Plex are under great demand for the rich dynamic production and unique blend of techno, house, funk, and electro that only Eric can devise.

Perhaps it's because of Eric's clear Cuban roots or his years in the game, but without a doubt 2010 was an incredible year and only more amazing things are expected of his truly unarguable talent. In 2010 alone Eric released under the names Maetrik and Maceo Plex remarkable releases on labels like Cocoon, Audiomatique, Crosstown Rebels, Dumb Unit, and Mothership. Not to mention a slew of amazing remixes for the likes of Morcheeba, John Digweed, Robert Babicz, Max Cooper, Martin Eyerer, and many more.

Now in 2011 Eric after the release of hugely successful "Vibe Your Love" on the very respected Crosstown Rebels, as Maceo Plex, Eric will be releasing in Febuary his full lenth album aptly titled "Life Index". It will be the start of a great career on Crosstown Rebels and will be huge departure from his typical futuristic tech sound as Maetrik. Without leaving the Maetrik brand behind, Eric will also releasing a hot new ep on Guy Gerber's Supplement Facts imprint, and a new ep on Cocoon. Also for 2011 remixes of Mandy & Booka Shade, Timo Maas, Adam Beyer, among others already confirmed.

11 years since his first release on the respected Immigrant Records back in 2000, Eric is still holding strong to his quest for the future of dance. Whether working on his "other worldly" compositions as Maetrik, his alien sounding electro as Mariel Ito, or his innovative dark house music as Maceo Plex, Eric is always putting his blood sweat and tears into everything he does. Putting aside trends and crushing genre boundaries, no one can argue that Eric has always stayed true to what comes from his heart or his sometimes choatic mind.
