Marcin Bociański started his music adventure at the age of 15 focusing mainly on the Electro genre. He spent every free moment working and at the age of 18 he released his first EP "Xpand". After a few years of regular releases, he has devoted himself completely to the underground. He met and fell in love with Techno music, officially changing his alias to Marboc.

Marboc's current musical incarnation can be described as a perfect selection and great music balance. He likes to surprise with dark, hypnotic sounds, and sometimes uncompromisingly emphasize his character by playing energetically and strongly building tension throughout the mix. Marcin gives the audience a unique musical vision, making his performances memorable for a very long time.

Marcin's work is interspersed with numerous performances in Poland and abroad playing alongside more experienced artists. In this way he learns valuable lessons and tips, which he then uses in his future releases and performances. His actions are appreciated by artists such as Joton, Nihil Young, Joe Farr, Oscar Mulero, Sept, Arnaud Le Texier, Joton, Unbalance, Drafted, Richie Hawtin, Uun, Electric Rescue, Joseph Capriati, Takaaki Itoh, Dubspeeka, Dj Deep, and more. In 2021, Martin took another step forward and was featured on vinyl records and CDs.

Of course, we decided to ask him a few questions about music and video games. Here's what he had to say...

What is your favorite video game soundtrack?

History in the game is very important for me. Discovering hidden secrets and traveling in large areas is for me :) The First game that touched me was Skyrim - The Elder Scrolls. Sometimes i go back and play. Of course for music :)

Who's your favorite video game music composer?

There are a lot of games that I love soundtrack. But if i have to choose, that will be: Jeremy Soul (Skyrim - The Elder Scrolls), Inon Zur (Fallout 4), Marcin Przybyłowicz, Mikołaj Stroiński & Percival (Witcher 3 - Wild Hunt) and Sam Hulick (Mass Effect)

What’s your favorite video game?

I recently finished Cyberpunk 2077. I am proud that my country has good game productions. The game has some bugs, but the atmosphere and the street darkness are unbeatable. Great story and twist actions. If you haven't played it, you must!

What game inspired you to do music?

I'm a Techno producer, but sometimes I love creating ambient and chillout music. Sometimes in my EP you can hear ambient tracks. For example, Marboc - Reference Material 01. My biggest surprise was the game Deliver us the Moon. Mysterious game. I Focused very much on what is happening in the game. She inspired me to create new materiał in my studio. The game for me must have a secret. This philosophy also works in my music.

What video game are you currently playing?

I love basketball. That's why I'm playing now in NBA 2k22.for me it has nothing to do with music. Just for relaxation and chilling.

Would you ever like to write music for video games? What would it be like?

It would definitely be music full of tension, dark, and hope. I would be inspired by the music I love. Same as in my favorite soundtracks.

How important is music for video games / video games for music?

It is as needed as oxygen for people. Music is an integral part of games. Music gives emotions. We live together with her. Especially in games .
