Based in Johannesburg, South Africa, MPI has his sights set on the world. Having gained respect in some of the top clubs in Europe, he now brings his sound (big bass-lined Dubstep, Drum n Bass and Breakbeat, with Electro, Minimal and Tech House influences) to you, where he continues to forge his original work on a combination of groundbreaking structures and elements taken from music’s big dish-plate.
His first international success came in 2004 with the signing of his first offshore record deal with American label, Bassmint Music. After arriving on the European continent in 2007, it literally took ‘no time at all’ for his talent (both as live performer and top producer) to be noticed and he soon signed his first European record deal with Be Yourself Music, home to labels such as Big & Dirty, High Contrast, Dirty Soul and Marco V’s own, InCharge.
This ‘meteoric’ rise to recognition is not undeserved and is a shining testament to 16 years of performing and producing on 4 continents. MPI, founder of Fracture Records (South Africa’s first ever Breakbeat label) and owner and manager of two record labels (Yucatech Recordings and Residence Recordings) that collectively span the electronic music spectrum, has to date released more than 300 original tracks and remixes, cultivating fresh and phat Dubstep, Breakbeat, Drum ‘n Bass, House, Techno and Electro, both digitally and on vinyl. Recently he produced a Nirvana bootleg that has been downloaded more that 100 000 times to date.
MPI’s Productions have found their way into the playlists and Record Bags of some of the top International DJs and Producers like Doorly, Dirty South, Fedde Le Grande, TV Rock, Calvertron and many more...
MPI has promoted successful club nights in Johannesburg, London and Amsterdam and has pumped world famous venues like Club NL (Amsterdam); Pacha(London); Empire (Brisbane); Timbuk2 (Bristol); Mad (Athens); Venta (Tel-Aviv); Zulu Bar (London); Winston Kingdom (Amsterdam); Allenby 58 (Tel-Aviv); Zebra (Amsterdam); Carfax (Johannesburg); The Bang Bang Club (Cape Town); Fiction (Cape Town) to name a few.
He has also supported many International acts that include King Unique, Sebastien Ingrosso, Brian Cross, Pendulum, Dieselboy, Raiden, Dylan, Smashing Pumpkins, Shimon, Jazzanova, Randall, Tony ChaCha and many more.
