Currently based in London, UK and recently having returned from a successful month tour in Australia, 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 Electro and Breakbeat , with Minimal and Tech House influences) to you, where he continues to forge his original work on a combination of ground-breaking structures and elements taken from music’s big dish-plate.

His first international success came in 2004 with the signing of his first off-shore 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 15 years of playing and producing on 4 continents. MPI, owner and manager of three record labels that collectively span the electronic music spectrum, has to date released more than 50 original tracks and remixes, cultivating fresh and phat 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 20 000 times to date.

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.

MPI’s multi-genre releases can be found on record labels Big & Dirty, Fracture Records, Kloraform, Yucatech Recordings, Sheer Music, Destination?, Aleph Recordings, Grooved Music, Casual Kickback, Soulcandi, GTA, Pinkertone, Wot Records, OGCJM, Breakdown, Knowledge Mag UK and Timecode under different aliases (Niteanday, D-Sine, Dubtraction, Terrorbyte, Kode5, Polits & Sparkes and Sub_traction).
