Will Marshall is a psychedelic tech-funk and techno producer, a hacker and educator from New Zealand. He is currently based in San Francisco.
Will’s first EP, Anaconda / Circuit Funk, was released on VIM Records in March 2012. This release rose to #10 on the Beatport breaks chart, receiving support from DJs worldwide. Will has recently signed to Warped Recordings with the EPs Craniosexual and Civil Serpent, and has two singles, Acinonynx and Blush Response, forthcoming on Broken Robot Records.
Will’s style is intensely cerebral, blending precise, robotic breakbeats with sinuous, psy-influenced leads. Always dancefloor-oriented, he maintains a high level of energy and focus in his sets.
Alongside his production, Will specializes in Live performance and LiveAPI programming. He has released a string of popular templates for Ableton, and works closely with producers such as Ill Gates and Mr Bill, as well as companies such as Livid Instruments, KMI and Novation.
Will has recently become artist in residence at Pyramind: Writing and producing new music and online courses with the Pyramind crew and instructor for the Traktor DJ 101 and Ableton Live DJ 110 ground campus classes.
Released in late 2009, Will’s DJ Template for the Akai APC40, Maschine and OhmRGB has become staggeringly popular: with over ten thousand users worldwide. Co-authored with Mr Bill, the Glitch Factory template is the last word in live performance for producers. Featuring full sets of stems from several of Bill and Will’s tracks, this template provides a fully-featured environment for performance on the APC.
In addition to his own projects, Will wrote the script for Ill Gates’ popular APC40 template, as well as his forthcoming OhmRGB template. Will currently works full-time as a producer and programmer, working with companies such as Novation, building custom performance rigs and providing training and workshops on Ableton.
