Markus is a composer, game dev and wannabe writer. He was signed to Sound Ink NY records at the age of 19, and has since then collaborated and remixed a number of artists including MF Doom (as Viktor Vaughn), Burna Boy and Waddy &Yolandi from Die Antwoord. The latter mentioned and he used to rap together. He won a couple of awards but over the years he has misplaced or broken many of them. Yet he still insists on using the horns of his Safta Award (for best original score) as a sort of ‘phone clamp’ for conference calls. Another award he now realizes he’s lost is his Annecy Special Distinction Award for The Blackheart Gangs animated opera and coffee table book, The Tale Of How.
He has scored a number of global campaigns for brands like Google, Coke, Amazon and Audi. In total he has worked on over three-hundred commercials though he’ll tell anyone who’ll listen that it feels like at least twice.
