Marc Hartman was born and raised in Utrecht/Holland.
He discovered music when he was 6 and his ambition to become a musician was following very soon.
Marc played in his teens in various bands as a drummer, because of the fact that he was left handed it was a problem while the band was playing on festivals and the drum kit had to be re-build every time.
At the same time he discovered the synthesizer and another dream was born, the only problem was… how to get a synthesizer.

Beginning 80′s the synthesizers were expensive but Marc had a talent to get things done, so he made a deal with a friend who had a small synthesizer named Korgh MS-20.
He offered his friend his exclusive pimped Skateboard for that “ghost in the machine”
After a while he found out about other gadgets out there and started working as a DJ in a local Club to make money and spend it on equipment.
His small bedroom homerecording studio was growing and growing and also the attention from record companies.

In 1985 he was asked to remix the first two records of Italian Disco project named Koto, from that moment on he was involved in various Remixes, productions and compostions.
After having a time out in 2000… he was working as an engineer in studios like Wisselooord Studios ( with a big client list with people like Mick Jagger, The Police, Elton John, Scorpions, Elo, U2 etc)
The studio manager who had hired him invested in workshops for the know how and very important… the know why.

After completing the circle of musician, producer, engineer and artist he was ready to have his 2nd homerecording studio.
Only this time he knew excactly what he wanted and what was needed in such a place, with various hits during the 80′s/ 90′s a lot of people found their way to Marc’s studio named Neverland ( inspired and infected by the Peter Pan syndrome)
These days Marc is doing a lot of electronic music like Chill Out and Deep House and is ready to take off with his 3rd Album called “Emission Of Love”.
In August 2016 the 4th album “Changes” has followed.
