Marshall: Producer for club orientated pop and dance music and founder of the label Moskva Monkey Motel. Well known for his catchy tunes, also under his other aliases David Marrs, Icchaka and Bassbottle.
First Musical Steps:
Marshall was born in 1982 in at that time still splitted Berlin. It wasn’t long until he discovered how to make sounds on his chimes and electric piano. He learned to play the guitar and joined a well-known choir for about six years. It was through these musical activities he trained his singing voice and obtained knowledge about harmonics and song structure.
As a child people often saw him banging on pots and pans, later drumming on the window sill at school. He then developed his own kind of beatbox, with which he often annoyed his teachers, who questioned „Whose Walkman is this???“. He has always been interested in rhythm. This is why he never passed the opportunity to play on a drum kit.
Youth And Electronic Music:
In his early childhood he discovered electronic music. Fascinated by the rave hymns of the time, he in 1996 took the chance to make his own debut track on a friend’s Amiga with a four patterns program. With that he constructed a song based on a melody he had in mind for years before. From now on he knew his way.
With the years, after trying other programs and making excursions into other musical styles, his tracks became better and better and he won a lot of fans.
In 2004 Marshall uploaded a few of his Techno tracks into internet as Bassbottle. Quickly he got a still rising fanbase. The mixsets he released one year later had also access. This lasted over the years. His first record on a lable appeared in 2005 and finally got the ball rolling for further releases.
Meanwhile you’ll find Marshall and his various music projects on miscellaneous analogue and digital EPs and compilations. Due to the unique style his music is appreciated by deejays and popular with fans. The pleasant maniac also plays his sound live as deejay in front of a wild dancing and screaming crowd. He achieves support by other well-known artists.
