Please tell our readers who you are and what you do?


My name is Markus Daniel van Biljon , I am from South Africa and I am currently 19 years of age I was born 23 February 1998 in Pretoria. Since I was very young I was always inspired by music and instruments , its fair to say that my whole family is musical and that I have been doing this from a very young age. When basshunter and armin van buuren came to the spotlight , the love started to begin to grow inside of me. When Martin Garrix released ''animals'' in 2013 I knew that electronic music production is what I wanted to do , today I wouldn't have it any other way…Here is some music from my soundcloud page to give you guys an idea what I like to make

How would you describe your influences and how have they changed over the years?


When Martin Garrix released ''animals'' in 2013 as mentioned above I really loved to produce EDM Bigroom , so it went on for another two years , that is when I discovered my true style . Crazy white boy , Kyle Watson and Timo ODV changed the game for me , I found myself moving to the deeper side of things very quick and I started doing deep house music. I also really love techno music as it has also inspired me a lot ..


What´s new right now?


I am really looking forward to release new great music , last but not least to perform a lot this year….
