We first stumbled upon the french producer, DJ and label boss Markus Gibb in the end of 2013 when he released an EP on Clouded Vision including amazing remixes by Drvg Cvltvre, Split Secs & Club Bizarre and are massive fans since then.
Therefor we are super excited that we finally had the chance to bring him to Berlin to play at our new event series T.O.F.U. (Too Old For Understatement) on July 25th, 2015 at a relatively new club called Beate Uwe. Don’t miss & find out more about him below!
My name is Marc-Etienne Guibert but you might know me as Markus Gibb. I was born in 1989, Angers, France and grew up in Poitiers, France. When I was a child my idol was Mac Gyver, because he’s the best! The Man of all situations ! When I was 18 years old, I started to produce electronic music. It was then when I realised that I wanted to live for my passion, the music and decided to do all my best to succeed on it. I’m trying every day ! :)
One of my best gigs I played was London, Dalston Superstore, set of 4 hours. Lovely people, really nice place and really nice crowd.
One of the best gigs I have been to was The Brian Jonestown Massacre (my favorite rock band).
Now I live in Lyon, France with my girlfriend Marine. In my house you can find my underwear… and my refrigerator is usually full with water, tomatoes, juices, parmesan cheese.. sometimes beers (but I’m restricted by the lady). I enjoy cooking and stay in bed with her a lot. I can spend hours listening and producing music. One of my favorite places to visit is London, because there are good vibes, good music, good culture!
On weekdays I work on my music and for my label Rock To The Beat and on weekends I usually stay at home, and sometimes go to a party.
My favorite song at the moment is Gravenhurst – The Diver. A film I watched lately and really liked was It follows. The last series I watched and loved was True Detective.
I am very inspired by darkness, paints, cold wave, industrial music. My dream is to build a family and continue to live with my music. My worst nightmare is to lose my hearing.
I love to make love and hate war.
I am addicted to beers (as I said, I’m restricted), I just cannot stop music.
I get totally fucked up, when I have an insect on myself.
Tomorrow I’m taking my flight to Berlin. Next month I’ll see my mum and my best friend. Next year I’ll play all around the world (joke). In 10 years I hope to be a good father.
If I wasn’t a “musician”, I would be a doctor.
If I was a car, I would be a smart. If I was an animal, I would be a rabbit. If I was a drug I would be mdma. If I was an invention, I would be a flight. If I was an object, I would be a book. If I could date myself, I would never show up at the “rendez-vous”.
If I could play with anyone it would be with Chloe. I would like to collaborate with Autarkic.
If I had only one wish, it would be to stay happy during all my life.
I would never produce EDM !, because all people know why!
My word of advice to the reader would be to come to parties where I’m playing!
