An Electronic Music artist since 1999, Marcus Beier has long been a fixture in the Midwest music scene and is best known for his residency with Detroit's premier nightclub, BLEU. Always one of the most in demand artists in Detroit, Marcus has played alongside many of the world's top deejays and can always be found playing the hottest parties and after-hours in the Detroit market. Since 2006 Marcus has held a second residency with the ever successful 'Substance' parties alongside good friend and partner, Dabura @ Boom Boom Room/Skybar in Windsor. With these events and additional National and International gigs Marcus played over 60 nights in 2008 and is set up to play even more in 2009 with a focus on new and emerging markets for his signature Progressive sound.
How can one describe that signature sound? "Cutting-edge, Dance floor driven Progressive House", explains Marcus. "Its Progressive House in general but I play music for people to dance. I play music that makes people want to move, have to move even. This may mean we venture into some more Progressive Trance, or even more Techno laden sounds. It is cutting edge because it's fresh and new sounding even though I often blend in classic dance tracks from as far away as 2000."
Since 2004, Marcus has also made a name for himself as host, producer and resident of the top ranked Friskyradio show appropriately titled 'FORWARD'. Close to 60 shows have been produced bringing exclusive mixes from over 30 of the world's top jocks to Frisky. In producing the show he has worked with such artists as Max Graham, Steve Porter, Satoshi Tomiee, and Serge Devant just to name a few. "With every project, whether it be my show, a gig, or a new night I am trying to produce, I always give my all and always work for the success of the end result." "I want people to have fun, experience new sounds and go home wanting more", says Marcus. In 2010, more is what they are going to get. Marcus kicked off the year with a special 7 hour sunrise set in San Juan and hasn't stopped since. This is the year for new markets and new ventures expect to see Marcus playing all over this year and keep an ear out for the first original productions as well as collaborations with up and comer's Thomas Emmanuel & Kings of Addiction from the studio. Catch Marcus every fourth Wednesday with 'Forward' on Friskyradio.com, holding down residencies @ Nine (Detroit),, Skybar in Windsor and soon in Toronto, and recurring guest slots on Digitally imported radio (DI.FM),, Sirius and Music Choice.
"Through every show and every mix look for me to continue my focus on what is important, sharing the best, most progressive EDM with those who enjoy hearing it…."
