Marcus Knauer is a veteran producer and live performer based in Portland, Oregon, USA who prefers to keep a low profile and his head buried deep within his Octatrack or a thundering kick drum. And that’s good news, since his tracks express a deep focus and show a masterful understanding for the mechanics of what makes a great techno track.
Knauer may be a new name to you, but he brings nearly two decades of skill from sound design, production and live performances to every song. Driving, powerful, dark, bass-heavy techno is a reflection of his techno roots in the Midwest and his determined, resolute personality. Which most likely means you won’t find him at a mega-festival or a daytime beach rave any time soon.. dark rooms and dark music is where this artist thrives and desires his music to be played.
