If you were not a DJ/producer, you would be a…
Spending every minute of everyday doing everything I could to become a DJ and producer!
If there was no music…
Clubbing would be an entirely different experience!
What do you like the most about your job?
I like making people dance and making people smile. Best. Feeling. Ever.
What do you hate the most in your job?
Delayed aircraft. In fact delayed anything!
You are perhaps the busiest DJ in the industry, what is the secret of Markus’ energy?
You know it’s not all about stamina. It might surprise some people to hear that. It’s as much about adrenaline and excitement ignited by the music. That’s what gets me juiced up! That’s what gets the crowd going and it develops, I think, into this kind of kinetic, super-colliding energy where people keep bouncing off my vibe, I’m bouncing off theirs, we’re all bouncing off the music’s and it just keeps going and going and going. Truth told, at the end of the 10-hour sets in LA for the launch of my city compilation this year, I was nowhere near ready to finish!
Your first thought on a Monday morning…
Where the hell am I and what’s the path of least resistance to the nearest cup of tea and breakfast bar!?
Behind the wheels (Car you drive and favourite automobile that you’d like to own someday)
I drive BMW. Gives me everything I want from a car.
Your favourite cartoon…
Hmmm. Jeez you kinda have me there. Don’t read or watch a lot of them these days. Let’s say Family Guy. That’s hit the Schulz funny bone on more than one occasion.
If there was a movie about your life, who would you choose to play your character?
Short of replying Danny DeVito to this question, I don’t think anyone can answer it in a humble fashion. So I’m gonna plead the 5th amendment here! I think the chances of them making a movie about the life of Guetta or Tiësto are still quite remote. As such it’s not something I’ve ever put thought to. Once they’ve made a movie out of Larry Levan’s life then I might start giving it some idle speculation!
When was your last holiday and when do you intend to take the next one and where?
Australia was the last and for the next one, hell knows. It’s a long time off I suspect ;)
Three way tie between U2, Coldplay and Pink Floyd.
In 10 years you will be…
Doing much the same as I’m doing now I think!
Thank you for your time :)
My pleasure guys!
