Marius is a dance music producer from Antwerp, born in the winter of
1974. After he had a few years of classical piano education, he started
making his own compositions on his first synthesizer in 1989.
In 1992 he got caught by the uplifting and mysterious vibes of the underground house music scene in Belgium. The key to this love were radio shows like "Liaisons Dangereuses" hosted by Sven Van Hees and "Rave Radio" hosted by Adam Curry. His favourite club was Café d'Anvers.
Marius was producing music in his bedroom until 1994. Then he got in touch with the Mixz productions, who scored a major dance hit with BB Jerome and the Bang gang. Together they produced various dance productions and remixes.
In 1997 Marius studied at the national filmschool in Brussels. It was also in this year that he started buying vinyl and spinning the weels of steel.
Some tracks have been remixed by Freaks (aka Luke Solomon and Justin
Harris) and played by veterans like Mateo & Matos. His two side projects
