In 1976, strictly speaking at 07th
November a little boy came into this world: NOVUS
a little star was born.
Even from earliest childhood he showed big interest
in music and therefore he owned his first record-player
already at the age of eight, though then it was all
about Elvis Presley and Madonna.
Inspired by various events in Munich he started
at his parents annoyance his DJ-career
in his parental home in Rottenburg in Lower Bavaria
Known under his pseudonym Novus (lat.
mean. New) he rapidly casted a spelll
on the regional crowds with his Hands-up-Party
All his friends and lots of fans joined his sets and
numerous bookings far beyound the borders of his home
state Bavaria were following.
In 1996, while those booking- and resident activites,
he got to know Axel Konrad at one of his gigs in his
homebase at that time.
By a very short time they both knew that they are
on the same wavelength in music matters as
well as interpersonal and a friendship far
beyond the Dj-thing developed. (Original
quotation from A.K. 1996: As a townie I thought
you can make a killing here at the country because
you own the newest and most fabulous vinyls, but you
had to put away one after the other record again because
the resident dj is playing exactly your set!)
In cooperation with Suprime Music Ingolstadt the project
Groove Coverage was founded overnight
by Markus and Axel in Summer 2001.
Supported by his both producers Axel Konrad and Ole
Wierk even the debut single entered the Top 20 of
Probably Are u ready should have been
a sign at that time, because with the second track
the final, enormous breakthrough succeeded like no
one dared to imagine before.
The cover version of Mike Oldfields superhit Moonlight
Shadow was number 3 of Media Control Charts
and blessed DJ Novus in the meantime resident
in Landshut - the with a 14-days-residence in the
Top 20 of the German Single-selling Charts.
Golden record for more than 250,000 sold sound storage
media; nomination for an Echo 2003, Mc
Mega Music Award 2003 a dream came true!
Since then Groove Coverage are now touring as Live-act
as well as Dj-Act through all parts of Europe and
are fireing their audience.
Simoultaneous with the third single, which should
also be the fastet own-composed No. 1 of the German
DJ Playlist (God is a Girl, Meda Control:
#8) GC published their first album called Cover
Girl by the end of 2002. By meeting up with
Lou Bega they got a songwriter, who everyone should
still remember of well because of his Mambo
Without taking a long break GC worked on completion
of the fourth single by using again the very expressive
and emotional vocals of Verena and Mell, who also
contributed the vocals for the whole GC album.
