Tech House Techno Electronica / Downtempo

Exactly 100 years after Albert Einstein, Markus Gebauer is born in Münster, Germany. As home of the legendary techno and house locations Cosmic Club and Dockland, Münster becomes the western capital of the German electronic music movement in the 1990ies. At the age of 14, Markus discovers the Elevator, the first techno record shop of the region which strictly serves DJs, and starts jobbing there. Quickly he recognized his purpose and MG’s mixing skills develop fast and his preference for a dark and straight-forward style of techno emerges with it. MGness is derived from selection of music that he becomes known for: “Markus Gebauer’s Nervous Exciting Sound Spectrum”. 1995 The Cosmic Club gets awarded as Club of the Year by the Raveline Magazine. During this peak of the techno movement in Münster, MGness designated as resident DJ into it.
He sets up his first proper sound studio directly above the main floor of the new Cosmic Club. Playing uncountable sets right before or after DJ icons like Sven Väth, Paul van Dyk, WestBam, Chris Liebing , Thomas Schumacher, Dave Angel or Luke Slater only feeds Markus’ addiction to perfection as DJ and producer even more.
With his first appearance as main live act of a Cosmic Club night, a dream comes true for the elec- tronic musician MGness in 1999. In 2002 MGness releases his first EP called “Re-EP” on Rawcanine Records, which is produced together with Kai Niggemann and Oliver Froning (Dune). As well in this Year the Raveline Magazine sends him as a DJ Instructor over to Ibiza for teaching the Art of DJing to Offspring DJs. When the Cosmic Club becomes homeless in 2003, MGness focuses on DJ gigs in clubs throughout Europe where he represents his musical home base.
End of 2004, MGness has the honor to produce the official anthem for Mysticland 15, the last event of the Cosmic Club makers. He performs it in his live act at primetime of this memorable final Cos- mic excess. His biggest release so far is “Elevator DJ Tunes”, a 2-CD compilation which is sold World-wide. The compilation includes as well as 2 exclusive productions by Markus. Looking for a new challenge he moves to Frankfurt he gets a residency at the DC Funkfurt clubbing event series by 2008. Getting deeper and deeper into production technology, MGness releases the well-received “Dreiundzwanzig EP” on October 23, 2009.
