Markey grew up in a small town near Ostend in Belgium.
At the age of Thirteen he became the vocalist of a local Punk/Hardcore band where he learned the basics of music. Three years later Markey got his first taste of non-commercial electronic music.
Inspired by this new driving sound he sold his gear, bought two decks, quit the band and started mixing.
After one year of buying vinyls and practice he left his elderly home and moved to Ghent. A city in Belgium with more opportunities.
After some years of playing around the city and having had several residencies in local clubs like ’’69’’, ’’Tijuana’’ and ‘’Make up club’’ his curiosity took him into making his own beats.
After 8 years of Ghent, one weekend of Berlin got him drawn to this thriving city and he quickly moved there after.
In Berlin he started the project ‘’Robyns & Markey’’ with his friend ‘’Yannick Robyns’‘.
In 2011 they Released their debut ep ’’Dancefloor remedies’’ on the Swiss label Colludo records.Being backed by the vocals of Mz Sunday Luv.
In August 2012 Markey released his first solo ep ’’Dawn’’ on Berlin’s Tonkind records where he did collaborations with Mz Sunday Luv and Yannick Robyns.
In Berlin, Markey has played in venues like ’’KaterHolzig’’, ’’Chalet’’, ’’Tresor’’ and ‘’Golden Gate’’ and more. He also played around Europe, Australia. New Zealand, Brazil and Mexico.
