In 1995 when hearing Acts like Sunbeam (Outside World), RMB (Redempion) and Jens (Loops and Things) Marco van Deroga got infected with the Hardtrance-Virus.
He started buying Vinyls and learned how to mix and at the End of 1997, he played for the first time in public on the watergate in Hannover.
While using different Mixingtechniques and keeping High Energy on the floor, he had a lot of success in Hannover and playing Gigs like Loveparade, Reincarnation Parade, the legendary Dorian Gray or on Trancemission in Ibiza.
In 2000 he was the first DJ that was playing Uplifting Trance in Hannover. At the Moment he has an Residency at We Love Trance in Hamburg playing with Acts like Sneidjer, Simon O' Shine, Talla 2 XLC, Alex Morph, Woody van Eyden, Kyau and Albert.
While starting producing in 2011 mainly for his own Sets, in 2015 he changed his DJ Name from DJ Exception to Marco van Deroga to release his own Stuff. In 2016 he got a lot of good Reputation taking part of the Remix Contest for Gareth Emery feat. Christina Novelli - Save me.
In 2017 he finally releases his first own Track I know you on Discover Records.
