The young prodigy started his professional career roughly three years ago by building his riddims and then approaching artistes to voice. He had full access to Gargamel Studio, and he had known most of the artistes but even then, it still wasn’t so easy to get the artistes to voice; something that was expected since he was a young producer. Markus is the epitome of perseverance and it was this characteristic along with his analytical mind that led to a successful career.
Since his introduction to music production, Markus has continued to make a huge impact on the musical landscape through the creation of his unique musical arrangements and high quality production. The development of his craft is as a result of his exercising due diligence in his works thus ensuring that he only produces quality music.
Markus has worked with an impressive list of established artistes that includes Mavado, I-Octane, Elephant Man, Beenie Man, Bounty Killer, Blak Ryno, Agent Sasco, Shaggy, Christopher Martin, Romain Virgo, D’angel, Denyque, Tifa just to name a few.
Some of his first projects were the ‘’Beating Stick Rididm’’ ‘’5th Gear Riddim’’ and the “Mattress Riddim” which were released in 2011.
The truly evolutionary producer who is known for his bold unique styles of music, enjoyed his first hit in 2012 with the massive single “Badmind Dem a Pree” by Bounty Killer and I Octane which led him to being nominated for producer of the year by the Star People’s Choice Awards, an award which he won by a huge margin. The success of this single also gave him the recognition and respect that he wanted as young producer.
Markus Records currently manages two artistes, D’East and Bryka. Markus has been working with them closely for the past two years; both are extremely talented artistes.
Today Markus credits his success, largely to the path his father, Buju Banton paved and to the respect he had garnered over the years. His arsenal of hits continue to grow and likewise his accolades. Markus is definitely on his way to a very illustrious career in music production. His Philosophy remains…
‘’You will reap what you sow’’
