Marcus Füreder (born November 27, 1974), better known by his stage name Parov Stelar is a musician who lives and works in Linz, Austria. He performs with his band — the Parov Stelar Band — and as a DJ worldwide. Parov Stelar is the head of Etage Noir Recordings.
After gaining experience as a DJ at nightclubs during the mid-late 1990s, Parov Stelar got involved in producing and publishing in 2000.
After early works under the pseudonym Plasma and his real name, and also being a partner of the label Bushido Recordings, in 2004 he started producing under the pseudonym Parov Stelar. In the same year he founded his own label: Etage Noir Recordings.
His first release, for Etage Noir, “KissKiss EP” and the soon after released LP “Rough Cuts”, provided him immediate breakthrough on the international electronic music scene. His specific approach to music production, combined with a proven sense of sound aesthetics, led to massive reaction of audience and colleagues all around the world, giving him reputation as the founder of a new genre: ELECTRO SWING
Parov Stelar’s tracks have been used on more than 700 compilations and have been the soundtrack for numerous TV ads, TV shows, TV series and movies.
