Mark Michael grew up in Vienna, Austria, where he started his music career by playing drums and guitar in Punk Rock and Heavy Metal bands. At the young age of 12 years, he discovered his passion for electronic music and started DJ-ing and producing music at home. Only one year later he had his first gig at a local High School party. Playing all around his hometown, Mark kept switching genres, urging to find his own individual style. Over the years he released music and performed under various alias, continuously focusing more on underground music. After spending some time abroad in Ibiza and Berlin, Mark’s vision finally was clear. By the end of 2017 he sunk deeper into the underground scene and discovered his love for techno music. Within a year, Mark managed to make himself a name in the Viennese techno scene performing alongside international acts. With releases on labels like Fe Chrome, Reload Black Label or Black Square Recordings and upcoming songs on Autektone, 2019 clearly marks his musical breakthrough in the techno scene.
