Maarcos was born in Malaysia and moved to Australia when he was a child. He studied at Melbourne private school Scotch College before attending Swinburne University of Technology. He played his first club show at 19 and currently resides in New York.
He then formed the group Those Usual Suspects with fellow band-members Wei-Shen Mak and Atridge D’Costa. Their first single ‘Dakka’ was released on Bob Sinclars Yellow Productions and the group became a member of the Africanism All Stars. Their following single ‘Shadows’ peaked at #17 on the Billboard Dance Airplay charts.
As part of Those Usual Suspects, Maarcos also released ‘Walking Alone’, a collaboration with fellow Australian Dirty South on Phazing Records. This track was made ‘Essential New Tune’ by the Swedish House Mafia on their BBC Radio 1 takeover.
On Friday, 11 July 2014 Maarcos announced his new record label Fuze Records. This is a joint venture between Maarcos and Sony Music Australia EDM Director Jon Hanlon. The first single was called ‘Pyro’ and the label will have Maarcos’ releases as well as other artists.
