All about the bass …

Bass is all you need!

Heartbeat. Pulse. Groove. Five strings, one vibe. This is what my life is all about. An ongoing, perpetually varying bassline. It determines my life and who I am.

Obviously, this passion had to become my career. Because my groove defines my life and not the other way around. A philosophy that can be described best with two words: STRICTLY BASS

Hi, my name is Mischa Marcks and I’m the guy who says “Bass is all you need!”.

  • I’m a solo artist and released my debut album in 2018
  • I have worked with many international artists as a hired gun as well as in the context of my solo project
  • I love geeking out about bass and neuroscience
  • When I’m not playing bass, I’m teaching it. With MMEducation I made it my mission to teach my students how to learn faster & practice smarter by using the latest findings in neuroscience to supercharge their progress.

Why I make music

Whenever I feel down, disconnected and abandoned music is there to make me feel one with the world again. It creates a connection with people I have never met or will never meet. And yet, to some degree, I feel closer to these people than to my own family. Music helps us to understand that we are not alone with our struggles. 

For me this is the original purpose of music and the reason why I make music. Giving comfort and compassion, just as I have received it in the darkest periods of my life. With my music I want to help you to relax and unwind after a tough day or even a traumatic experience. I also hope that my music inspires you to try new things and motivates you to find out who you truly are and what makes you get up every morning with a smile on your face.
