Marcus Füreder first appeared as a DJ at nightclubs during the mid-late 1990s. He got involved in producing and publishing in 2000.
Having released his first maxi singles on Bushido (still using his real name and his stage name Plasma), Füreder founded the record label Etage Noir Recordings in 2003.
A year later, now with the stage name Parov Stelar, the EP Kiss Kiss was immediately picked up by the influential Austrian radio station FM4. KissKiss, soon followed by the LP Rough Cuts, provided him with a breakthrough on the international electronic music scene.
Parov Stelar won 7 Amadeus Austrian Music Awards: Electronic/Dance (2012, 2013, 2015 and 2016), Album of the year for The Princess (2013), Best Live Act (2013 and 2014).
Parov Stelar worked with Lana Del Rey, Bryan Ferry, Marvin Gaye and Lady Gaga.
He released ten albums, more than twenty EPs and sold more than 500,000 albums independently.
The track "Booty Swing" reached top chart positions in the electronic US and Canadian iTunes charts "All Night" reached Double Platinum Status for more than 100,000 tracks sold in Italy in May 2017 and in May 2018 the song "The Sun" featuring Graham Candy reached the No. 1 chart position in the US iTunes Electronic Charts.
His tracks have been used on hundreds of compilations worldwide as well as in TV shows, TV series, movies and advertising spots which brought him international recognition.
