Sander’s love and passion for music started at a very young age.
Growing up in a house in Belgium where lots of music was available he quickly realised what his path would be.
At 13 he started singing in a local Punk Hardcore band.
After 3 years he got his first taste of underground electronic music which got him hooked pretty fast.
Soon after he started making his own beats and releasing under the name of ‘Markey’ on labels like:
– Tonkind (Berlin)
– Lift your Head Up (Belgium)
– Colludo (Suisse)
– Joprec (Berlin)
– Subsonic music (Australia)
Since some years Sander has been playing under the alias ´Johnny Lee Johnson´ and ‘Slick Marcel Rick’ under which he regularly provides the people with long mixes that contain a variety of styles that slide along the timescale.
His love for music and his curiosity can be felt and heard in his music and mixes that can range anywhere from one to ten hours long. The music can never seem to end for this one. And we aren’t complaining!
He draws his inspiration from psychedelic jazz, blues, soul, funk, exotica, soundtrack/soundscape, surf, garage rock, acid Rock, folk, trip hop, psychedelic funk, calypso, downtempo, disco and everything in-between.
