Marco Visconti
Profile:
Marco Visconti (born June 4, 1978) is a musician, producer, and DJ known for his work with the Anglo-Italian band XP8.

Visconti was born in Rome, Italy. In 2001 he formed XP8 with Marko Resurreccion and Paul Toohill. Visconti contributed to the band with songwriting, synth production and arrangements till XP8's eventual split in 2014. He is also a DJ focused on Industrial Dance music, and the underground Electronic Dance scene in general, having played all over the globe during his fifteen years career.

A member of gothic metal band Morgana’s Kiss sometime during the late ’90s, in 2001 Visconti formed XP8, an electronic band drawing inspiration by genres such as EBM, synthpop and hard dance. Other members of the band included Marko Resurreccion and Paul Toohill. In 2006, Visconti joined two other projects, Unter Null (this partnership will only last few months), and Grendel, as member of the live lineup of each band. 2007 is the year that saw him playing for VNV Nation on their "Judgement World Tour". A year later, in 2008, he started working with Faderhead, as well as becoming a staple to the live lineup; while in 2009 Visconti ended his collaboration with Grendel, to focus only on XP8 and Faderhead.

He continued writing music for the XP8’s songs as well as working on band’s synth production and arrangements till the band's split in 2014, when everything came to a grinding halt. Quoting various reasons for this decision, among them the dwindling interest in alternative/industrial dance music, a trend that had a long run for almost two decades but that eventually ran dry. In an interview, Visconti also stated that “[...] no one wants to be the old guy in a room full of kids looking at you like a dinosaur: I remember vividly making fun of those old goths that simply didn’t want to get the fuck out of MY clubs a decade ago, and the last thing I wanted to become was one of them.” - clearly pointing out the necessity to make space for a younger generation to make things vital and vibrant once again.

After the split of XP8, Visconti continued working as a DJ until April 2015, when he decided to go on hiatus from the music scene after a final set at Sheffield's Resistanz Festival.
