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 djing
obsession began back in 1993 at the age of 15, and soon after
became deeply infatuated with bringing his musical ideas to life
with his production. Since then, his pseudonyms Maetrik, Mariel Ito, and 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.

Since then he's gone onto write 3 full length albums, a slew of 40 more Eps, and countless remixes. Even through the years of Prolific production, Eric has developed one of the most intricate and floor impressive live acts in electronic music. Fusing his skillfull DJing and Live PA performance in a way that walks a fine line between intelligent and conceptual music,
and floor filling futuristic body rocking.
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
Watch out for more killer music on his USA homebase Claude Vonstroke's Mothership imprint. Or extraordinary Europe brands Dumb Unit, Audiomatique, and Treibstoff.
