Born and bred in the depths of the volatile East Coast punk rock scene, Marc(Ø) has always had a passion for music. With early beginnings singing for various punk and hardcore bands, he always sought out new and interesting sounds. In the late 80's he discovered "industrial music" in the form of pioneering artists Meat Beat Manifesto and Nine Inch Nails. He was instantly sucked in by the pounding beats and mechanical sounds. Sooner or later he was bound to come across electronica, and in the summer of 1991 he did just that. Marc(Ø) became immersed in the early US rave scene, but for years only remained an attendee. In 1999, after bugging one too many DJ friends to play his favorite tracks for him - one influential DJ had finally had enough. His good friend DJ Sinestro said to him "Why dont you just learn how to spin?", and the rest is history. He picked up his 1st vinyl in early
2001, and it began a never-ending quest to find the perfect beat. His early dabblings into various forms of house quickly gave way to the more funky and liquid sounds of breakbeat and "atmospheric" D&B. That is of course until he heard the emerging sound known as "Nuskool Breaks". For the past several years, he has made breakbeat his mainstay, using elements of progressive house and breaks, tech-house, tech-funk and electro to round out his sound. Playing his signature style which he dubs "Electrofunk" , he has played all over, from the world famous weekly party "Buzz" (aka Cubik) to San Francisco's Love Parade, and has no intention of slowing his momentum any
time soon...
Marc(Ø) has played alongside such notable acts as: Scott Henry, Reid Speed, AK1200, Richard "Humpty" Vission, Future Funk Squad, Hi-8, Myagi, J-Break, Joe Nice, and his own personal heroes, Meat Beat Manifesto, as well as a host of local Bay Area DJ's/artists, and many of the DC/Baltimore scene's hometown heroes.
