Know your artist: Mako (Alex Seaver and Logan Light)

Remember Beam from 2012? The awesome, uplifting and energetic track released on Revealed Recordings and later remixed by Dannic? That was the work of Mako, two extremely talented lads from the US. We aren’t just saying they’re talented because they made beautiful songs. It’s because Mako is the amalgamation of a professional DJ and a Juilliard Graduate (One of the best art schools anywhere in the world)

The two guys go by the names of Alex Seaver (the Juilliard guy) and Logan Light (the pro DJ). Now you must be wondering how two musicians from totally different paths would bump into each other, the answer lies in the fact that their fathers were best friends and roommates in Syracuse University years ago!

Mako was created after EDC (Electric Daisy Carnival) 2011 when Light invited to Seaver to “witness his world”

The group’s first release “Beam” quickly shared on blogs and YouTube getting more than 1.5 million views to date. The track was featured on SiriusXM too!

“Since their start, Mako has built a working relationship with Interscope Records, quickly finding themselves in studio with some of dance musics top artists (Avicii, Sander Van Doorn, R3hab, DubVision, Heather Bright, Le Castle Vania, and many others). Mako’s first label release, “Into the Light,” featuring Sander Van Doorn was released on dutch mega-label Spinnin Records, it reached #3 on the Beatport Top 100 in just a week and sat in the top 5 for over two weeks.” –

Among their other tracks, our personal favorite is the new “Shadow of the Sun” featuring Max Elto. The song is emotional as any other Mako track would be and as Mako rightly put it themselves, it’s like “music for the heart and the feet”

Give it a listen here!

When 2 different things, cultures, people collide, something “unique” and altogether magical will happen.
