Marc Hype

Style: Hip Hop, Funk, Mash Up, Breaks


With a career spanning almost 30 years, there’s no doubt Marc Hype is a sureshot partyrocker who represents a more eclectic view on Hip Hop & Funk from the very beginning. With countless releases, tours and competitions like the German ITF championships, which he won twice in 98 & 99, he’s now also part of the UK based international 45 Live DJ circle, still spreading the original values of Hip Hop Culture and Crate Digging..

8   Weirdest thing that happened on tour
There’s always happening pretty weird stuff on tours! Wether it’s the military roll call of a few hundred waiters in chinese Superclubs, 1000 m dashs on airports, endless private after hour sessions or taxi drivers who can’t speak or read any langugages you got to offer… 

MP3 – VINYL: Why?
Both world got their pros & cons. Vinyl is the basic nevertheless,  but you can work technically more out of the digital world. It depends on the event concept nowadays. Still love to rock 45s!

Shouts to the clubs & promoters
Give music a chance, give kids the opportunity for a future through a look back. There’s a reason why classics are classics!
