"Marat Shibaev is born in Kazan in April 1988. In year 2000, he came to know the electronic sound, which has conquered his mind. In two years, under the resonant name of Martin Schulte he started to write electronic music and get DJ skills. He was trying to experiment with sound, seeking his own direction and trying to be different from others. Nowadays Marat makes music in ambient/deep/dub/techno music his own music on different labels."
