Markus Homm

When DJ and producer Markus Homm steps behind the decks he has the unmistakable confidenceof someone who knows exactly how to galvanise the dancefloor. His crisp, propulsive grooves haveone clear mission: to get people to move their bodies.

Markus makes this look easy, in part, because he has probably spent more waking hours on thedancefloor than anywhere else. Born in Romania and raised in Germany, Markus began ballroomdancing at age 12 and went on to become a world-class professional dancer.

His passion for electronic music blossomed as a teenager in the mid-90s. “House music was in thecharts, on the radio and TV,” he recalls. “One of my first nights out to my local club I saw Ultra Natéperform ‘Free’. I got into that sound, lots of vocals, grooves, very happy positive music.”

As a teenager in the analogue age, Markus would go to the club on Thursday night then to therecord shop on Friday to find out what the DJ played. “I would spend an hour choosing onerecord,” he recalls. “It was always about the music.” He bought one turntable, to listen to vinyl;then another, so he could DJ. Now, he plays all over the world, from Berlin and Tokyo, to the USA,Thailand and Australia.

Music was an escape from the rigours of training seven days a week, but Markus approached itwith the same dedication. “Discipline within the dancing world helped me in the music world,” hesays. “Instead of partying I would get up on Monday and go to the studio. Dancing at a high levelyou analyse music and rhythms tofind a way your body can show that. In the studio you do thesame thing.

“There was never a “master plan”, just passion and the organic evolution of his dancefloor grooves.Since his first official release in 2008, Markus has maintained a steady release schedule on labelsincluding Highgrade, Dynamic, 8bit, Poker Flat, Bondage Music, Saved Records, Bedrock and StillHot.

His constant mingling of styles and histories creates a unique and exciting sound. Markus’s DJ setsbear the traces of his musical evolution, from the uplifting vibes of classic house to the crispprecision of underground techno. “My life is about dancing, grooves, and music,” he says. “Greatmusic should get you in the mood, without you even realising it. That’s what I want todo.”
