Marco then graduated from the floor to the stage about ten years ago in a small club in East Germany.
“They booked me really early on in my career,” he explains. “I was super nervous. Back then I only played live sets, so it was totally different as for the past couple of years I’ve been just DJing. Starting out live was intimidating, people may have only known one, or none of the tracks I was playing, so it was hit and miss. You get more practice and routine and it eventually becomes fun.”
On 25 January 2010 Marco released ‘Coma Cat’. He would have no idea of the reach the track would have in the electronic music world and how the vocal and piano would be become so iconic to summer parties.
“I didn’t realise in the beginning how big it got. First it came out on a smaller label called Permanent Vacation and it took almost a year until it got bigger. Defected Records signed the record and made it huge in the UK and before I knew it it became an Ibiza anthem and a summer festival tune.”
