„Good music ain´t any reason for which kind of music it should be.“ (Miles Davis) The passion for electronic music has been drawing Der Cube to keyboards and computers since the early 1990ties – back then still with his band “Apology”. Speaking in terms of production-styles he refuses being labeled and works on a lot of different tunes from Tech-House to Electro-House. Currently he is working on different tunes and remixes for envloop records, only recently he remixed iPunks “Turn On(e)” on iPink Records. Along with this he works on his German Electro-Pop-project “Cube & Der Pottwal”, developing their album and their live-show. Under his artist-name “Cubism” Markus Goetzendorfer produces experimental and downbeat tunes. Together with “Digiton” he also hosts the Radio show “Cubetronic” on Radio B138 (Kremstal, Upper Austria). Links: Der Cube on Myspace cubepottwal.com radio-b138.at
