Nothing fancy here, just another raver from the Westside. Michael A. RobbinS created a new sound of EDM that helped change dance music culture in America. Considered the pioneer of Cybertrance, MARS has attained a cult-like following according to the SF Weekly, and is recognized as one of the most influential American dance music producers, particularly on the West Coast. From small beginnings, MARS played for 12 people crammed into an apartment near San Francisco, eventually performing to 45,000 fans at the LA Coliseum for New Year’s and other events like EDC. At the height of his career and while being mentioned in publications like Billboard and BuzzFeed, MARS left the music industry feeling he’d done all he could do. In 2002, MARS pursued his other lifelong passion - unmanned flight technology and eventually went on to work for Nokia-Bell Labs, Amazon, and NASA. Returning to Earth, MARS has been offered a new residency in Las Vegas at the Golden Nugget and will be soon releasing modernized Cybertrance-styled music on the highly acclaimed Cold Harbor record label.
