BASIC INFO DJ MARCUS COOPER
Marcus Cooper is apart of the professional DJ scene since 2003. Initially a guitarist in a rock band, he eventually switched over to electronic music and DJing. During his career he performed at a number of major festivals such as Pleasure Island, Creamfields, Mácháč, Summer of Love, Hradhouse, Cosmic Trip, Space Parade, Free Summer, Trnkobraní, Oxygen or Rio De Rivier, as well as at major hall and club events like Apokalypsa, Citadela, Imperium, Cybertronic and so forth.
In 2012, he joined the prestigious booking agency Kick da Night. This signing followed numerous summer festival appearances and the formation of Marcus' most recent project together with live drummer Kobylka, which presents a non-traditional connection between electronic music and percussion. Another significant cooperation was established with London-based booking agency Same Agent, which took on the responsibility of promoting Marcus' productions to labels and also takes care of his worldwide management.
His progressive tech-house style is without a doubt a guarantee of quality that follows current trends. During his performances he uses a MIDI controller or a third CD player, which serves primarily as a sampler for special effects, loops or accapellas. All this contributes to a more intriguing club sound and more interesting concept of mixed music!
His sets are intelligent, full of action and surprises, proof that his placing among the top DJs is rightfully deserved.
Marcus does not simply DJ other people's records, but also produces his own music.
He was approached by Fee Summer Festival, the largest festival of its kind in East Slovakia, to create an anthem bearing the festival's name and based on the tracks success, he was also asked to produce another anthem for the Oxygen festival. Hard work in the studio has payed off and continues to do so for Marcus. Both above mentioned tracks Oxygen and Free Summer were released by FS Music Records, one of the most promising labels in the Czech Republic. Furthermore his remixes have been released on UK-based labels UNT Rec. and Oneway.
In 2012 he plans to release 5 new exclusive tracks and remixes on labels Neptuun (Ind.) and Milk Plus (It).
When it comes to cooperating with other DJs, singers and performers, Marcus is very open-minded and he stands behind the idea that music must constantly offer something new, novel, something that can achieve to capture the interest of even a challenging audience. Most recently he has collaborated with R & B singer Tom Malar.
With his concept of tech-house parties called Perfect Balance, he has successfully toured a large number of clubs throughout the Czech Republic and the Slovak Republic. He is a regular guest on radio stations such as Evropa 2, Deejay, Fine, Kiss FM or Internet radios and so forth.
Marcus is a really versatile talent, something that's demonstrated by the fact that he is also an active events promoter. His party Free Fly, now in its sixth year, has become a popular feature of Zlin's nightlife. Gourmet Soap is his brand new night, which focuses strictly on non-commercial sounds.
