Hailing from London, Marksman is a progressive force in the melodic house and techno scene, rapidly gaining a reputation with his innovative productions and DJ sets.
Marksman’s unique sound comes from his diverse inspiration. His signature style combines genres to create a sound that’s profoundly dark, emotive and powerful, a musical journey his audience doesn’t forget. His formative years saw him heavily influenced by his father’s love of classical music, with Marksman pursuing classical training as both a pianist and cellist for several years. Marksman was later inspired by rock and metal genres. He felt awakened by these new styles and began playing guitar and drums.
Marksman was drawn to London and its thriving electronic music scene, eager to take his musical mission to electric new heights – and he did. Drawing on his impressive musical background, Marksman taught himself to DJ and produce his own music entirely from scratch, always inspired by his love of performing and connecting with his audience through music.
What began with invitations to play at events and private parties all over London, developed into frequent club sets at XOYO, The Nest and Rolling Stock. In addition to his residency with April to July, he also regularly plays on Bloop. London Radio.
His future plans for production are to merge the live instrumental musician world with electronic music.
