"Estación Sub_Trópico seems to come from a distant future, a Teleportation to an island that floats through the Milky Way".

Estación Sub_Trópico is a Dominican cultural artistic project. Its peculiar sound identity is born from the result of mixing elements of Traditional Dominican Music with different genres, sounds and aspects of Electronic Music. We could define this performance as a Live Set where various genres of Electronic Music such as Minimal, Techno, Deep House, House, etc. are combined, with different rhythms, songs and melodies that characterize traditional Dominican folklore.

Based on live-produced audiovisual sets, each presentation is a unique experience that manages to unite Afro-caribbean instruments such as balsié, güira and tambora with synthesizers, sequencers, Moog and other electronic instruments in order to create what has been described as a "magical and unique performance", a ceremony full of spirituality, songs and colors represented in a high quality audiovisual language.

Since hitting the stage in March of 2017 they have performed in the most important venues and music festivals in the Dominican Republic. Its members are Marlene Mercedes (Producer, Composer, Keyboardist, Programmer, Singer and Percussionist), and Carlos Monción (Producer, Composer, Guitarist, Sound Designer and Computer Musician), in addition to their special guests and collaborators Iván Herrera (Visual Artist, Film Director and Photography), Rocío Damirón (Bass), Rafa Payán and Isaac Hernández (Guitar).
