Marco Toepfer, better know as Marc van Gale, was born in 1986, since early years of his life he was charmed by music, and it didn't take long before he discovered his passion for electronic dance music, and then got his first dj gear when he was only 11 years, being recognised as a young promise and successfully making his way up to big gigs just 5 years later under the name of DJ4T. Not long after meeting success as a dj, in 2003, he decided to start producing tracks and remixes in his prefered style: Trance. So he learned to produce and was quickly developing his own sound till 2004, when he saw himself forced to take a hiatus from his music career, but at the end of that year returned to the scene with a show at Radio Sunshine Live Hire & Fire (92% Hire) and focused on dedicating to what he is most passionate about, music. This marked the re-start and way up of his career, playing lots of gigs at different locations around the world, alongside artists such as Paul van Dyk, Dennis Sheperd, Ronski Speed Talla2XLC, Johan Ekman, Niels van Gogh, Corderoy, Melanie di Tria, Nathalie de Borah, Joe Cormack, and many more. His popularity has been on a fast rise since then, hosting a successful radioshow since 2007 aired on Beatnight.at, Globalbase.fm, Decksharks.fm, Trancesonic.fm, Projectradio.us, 1mix.co.uk.
