Marcus toured heavily both as Broombeck - playing live techno at clubs like Berghain and touring with Monika Kruse - and as Guardner and Rauschfaktor. He produced music for several well-known dance acts. Not long after, his next chapter of techno 2pole and Apnoea was born. Marcus has been a professional composer, producer, sound designer, mix and mastering engineer since 1993. He was raised playing classical guitar. From there, he began building a studio, and today Marcus writes for artists, TV shows and advertising, and has gold records to his name. He also plays many instruments. Next to his music company he studied electrical engineering, which helped him to understand the technical side. But the Marcus Schmahl story has only just begun. And with so much history already written, and so much early success to his latest projects, the future is looking long and bright.
