Marottes is Cleveland, USA-based TV producer and video director Mike Mitnick. It’s an audio visual project which is both a concept and a character, and has just come to my attention thanks to his latest track. Full of captivating electronica, it’s called Be My Moon (Full moon version).

For Marottes, Mike took inspiration from the natural world, including Cleveland’s Lake Erie, as well as something more mystical. He’s a big fan of the Zelda video games and the music within that series can be detected in his own. The result is something that feels both familiar and not of this world.
Be My Moon (Full moon version) opens with a lively tempo. There are experimental layers of electronica and ghostly vocals. What comes through most clearly is the emotional content of its lyrics. They are spoken in the international language of romance.
The track features on Mike’s album Languish: Under The Full Moon which is out now in all the usual places. You can check out Be My Moon (Full moon version) below.
