In a troubled Serbia of the 90’s, Marko and his buddies built one of the most vibrant club scenes in Eastern Europe, the one that inspired writers of Mixmag, The Face, DJ and NME to write accolades many moons ago. The word soon started to spread beyond the boundaries of Serbia and the club scenes in neighbouring countries became aware of Nastic’s unparalleled DJing skills and his distinctive three-deck style.
Marko has since matured into a DJ who cannot be labelled as purely techno, house or minimal; he’s all of that, and more. Marko was a member of the original Recycled Loops crew. After that label stopped, Marko joined Valentino Kanzyani’s ‘Jesus Loved You’ and started three labels himself, Recon Warriors, which put Marko on the charts, followed by Recon Light and Traffica. Marko did his first non-European tour in 2002, which started in Brazil. Now he regularly plays gigs all over the world.
