Marko was born in Zaječar, but he has been living and working in Novi Sad for some time. His music is based on hip-hop, which is the first genre that caught his interest, and it remains so even today. As he got older, his work is being influenced by British music scene and that is the reason why there is a hint of jungle and classical drum&bass in his sets. He collaborates with numerous local performers and is one of the founders of the ‘Outworld’ artistic organisation.
In recent years, Kick Kong has been performing at parties and festival across the former Yugoslavia, remaining true to its primary, recognisable sound.
