Marsh wows with DJ set on North Wales railway for his new single release

UK-BORN and US-based melodic and progressive house sensation Tom Marsh, known as Marsh chose the historic Ffestiniog and Welsh Highland Railways (FfWHR) for a fully filmed DJ set to launch his new single.

The epic set, filmed by Marsh’s friend and long-standing collaborator, Sam, in May, is exceptionally cinematic and showcases breathtaking views of the Welsh countryside. 

This outing on the ‘Snowdonia Star’ service was particularly special for Marsh, as his parents, Andrew and Jacqui, had previously volunteered and worked for the Ffestiniog Railway.

“I have been coming here to the railway for years – my dad volunteered here in the 1970s when they were laying track in the mountains to reroute the railway on the line up to Blaenau Ffestiniog,” said Marsh.

“My new single ‘Floodlights’, on the Anjunadeep label, evokes images of light piercing through dark, foggy forests. I first debuted the track in my Kew Gardens mix and it quickly became the most replayed moment of the set!

“The idea started with an ambient, fuzzy chord progression. Then I began jamming with the iconic DX7 Solid Bass patch (courtesy of Myon) and quickly found the bass riff.

“Next came the vocals. I fell in love with the angelic, choral vibes, which added a special hook to the record! It all came together quickly and has been a joy to feature in my recent sets.”  

Since the release of his 2023 album, ‘Endless,’ Marsh has soared to the forefront of the melodic and progressive house scene. The album reached #1 on Beatport’s Chart and the artist embarked on a 52-date world tour, selling over 35,000 tickets.

Marsh recently played sold-out shows at London’s HERE at Outernet and New Century Hall in Manchester, with festival performances at EDC Las Vegas and Cercle’s iconic festival at the Air France Museum in Paris in front of 25,000 people. 

This September, Marsh will take his hybrid show ARIA, featuring vocalists and long-term collaborators Jodie Knight and Leo Wood, to the US with performances at iconic venues such as LA’s Fonda Theatre, Chicago’s Concord Music Hall, and New York’s Webster Hall.
