When DJ and producer Markus Homm steps behind the turntables, he has the unmistakable confidence of someone who knows exactly how to drive the dancefloor. His crisp, propulsive beats have a clear mission: to get people moving their bodies.

Markus makes it look easy, in part, because he has probably spent more waking hours on the dance floor than anywhere else. Born in Romania and raised in Germany, Markus started ballroom dancing at the age of 12 and became a world-class professional dancer.

His passion for electronic music blossomed as a teenager in the mid-1990s. "House music was in every playlist, on the radio and on TV," he recalls. "One of my first nights at my local club I saw Ultra Naté playing 'Free'. I got into that sound, lots of vocals, beats, very happy and positive music".

As a teenager in the analogue era, Markus would go to the club on Thursday nights and then to the record shop on Friday to find out what the DJ was playing. "I'd spend an hour picking out a record," he recalls. "It was always about the music." He bought a turntable to listen to vinyl; then another, so he could DJ. Now he plays all over the world, from Berlin and Tokyo, to the United States, Thailand and Australia.

Music was an escape from the rigours of training seven days a week, but Markus approached it with the same dedication. "The discipline within the dance world helped me in the music world," he says. "Instead of partying, I would get up on Monday and go to the studio. Dancing at a high level, you analyse the music and the rhythms to find a way for your body to show that. In the studio you do the same thing.

There was never a "master plan", just passion and the organic evolution of his beats on the dancefloor. Since his first official release in 2008, Markus has maintained a steady release schedule on labels such as Highgrade, Dynamic, 8bit, Poker Flat, Bondage Music, Saved Records, Bedrock and Still Hot.

His constant blending of styles and histories creates a unique and exciting sound. Markus' DJ sets bear the traces of his musical evolution, from the exhilarating vibes of classic house to the crisp precision of underground techno. "My life is about dance, beats and music," he says. "Good music should put you in the mood, without you even realising it. That's what I want to do.
