Marina Karamarko is always playing from the heart with the tendency to spread all over you and into you with a mission to leave you with a full heart before going home. With her unique style and charisma she instantly won the dance floor. It all started back In the 2005. when she decided to transform the love for music into a life's passion. 
After some summer residencies where she crafted her skills she was sure this is the career she wanted to pursue. Her capacity to understand the music, its layers and her natural ability to entertain and connect, gained her a huge respect from her colleagues and dancing crowd who appreciate her sincerity, openness an fact that she's simple and approachable, loving what she does. 
In 2008 she gained an Audio Engineering Diploma at SAE University of Ljubljana and since than she is collecting more knowledge and experiences as a sound engineer and producer, which leads to supremacy in understanding the background of the music she plays and makes. 
In 2012 Marina joined Innocent Music label, and played a lot of events under their organisation. She also signed with labels such as Baile Musik, Deep Tech Records, Albatory, Blacksoul Music, Draft.... just to name a few. 
In 2013 she won the Croatian finale of the Burn Studios Residency contest, and joined Burn Residency bootcamp on Ibiza, where she worked with some great artists such as Steve Lawler, Solomun, Maceo Plex and many others. Her talent and passion didn't go unnoticed so she got a residency In highly respected club Sankeys Ibiza, where she played on Viva Warriors Nights with Steve Lawler, Darius Syrossian, Sante, Phillip Bader, Guti, Robert Dietz, Detlef, Anek and many more. She was also a part of Sonar Off Festival and had a chance to play all over the Ibiza in the clubs like Privilege , Sands and all top radio stations on the Island: Ibiza Global Radio and Ibiza Sonica. 
Residency on Ibiza brought her a lot new acquaintances and opportunities and after her first season on the Island the gigs just keep on coming; after London and Manchester she had a mini USA tour, playing in New York , Miami and Orlando, places she only dreamed of. 
2015 was a big year for her, while celebrating the 10 years behind the decks with a launch of her own label called THANQ, which idea was to start a wave of gratitude around her, that Sumer 2015 she was also a part of big Sonus Festival, where she warmed up for amazing John Digweed. 
The idea about creating a brand recognisable by quality and positive vibrations was cooking for so long but now ThanQ is already established as a unique and very respected label, while Marina is more busy than ever, with a full gig schedule and bunch of great releases coming your way.
