Markus is the founder of Berlin-Brighton, a Berlin style underground club night that has been making waves for the last three years. With queues down the street and full venues for every party, Berlin has established itself as one Brighton’s most popular Underground music events.
The night has also been forward thinking in terms of the type of parties (in true Berlin style), with a residency at the Green Door Store as well as alternative parties such as beach terrace parties, pop up parties, studio parties, outdoor Christmas market parties and collabs with other venues in the city.
On the back of that Berlin has enjoyed a successful radio show on Codesouth.FM for the whole of 2016 and moving over to Trickstar Radio in January 2017. Markus is from Germany having moved over to the UK many moons ago and always wanted to bring a slice of his home land to the UK.
Spending his early DJ years in the North West of England playing Trance, House and Tech House in around Manchester, Markus extended his portfolio with gigs elsewhere in the UK and Europe including slots at well known beach bars in Ibiza. Moving to Brighton in 2011, Markus quickly got onto the circuit with residencies for Hed Kandi and having now played at almost all well-known club venues in the city as well as boat parties, pride and other quirky pop up events. 2017 has been an incredible year for Markus sharing the stage and working with talented artists such as Dave Seaman, Steve Parry, Kellerkind, Nhan Solo, Superlover, Timo Garcia, Just Her, Tigerlight, Juliet Sikora, Cinthie and supporting John Digweed at Concorde 2. Equally Markus has been featured in multiple magazines such as Decoded Magazine, BN1, XYZ, Native FM and After Dark. 2017 also saw the collaboration with German and UK record labels in the form of Radio Show features and Label Showcase events involving Mother Recordings, Kittball, Stil vor Talent, Steyoyoke, Beste Modus, Selador and Arms & Legs.
2018 sees Markus bringing more talent over from Berlin to play at the club nights as well as plans to extend the brand into other cities. Markus also has some incredible bookings in the bag and will once again be a supporting pillar at the Brighton Music Conference in April. Equally Markus is focusing on some studio time with some tracks for release later in the year and releasing more EPs on his Dino Audio Record label launched in October 2017.
