Zzino:

Marc Van Campenhout became Zzino around 1986, right at beginning of the house and techno era. It wasn't long before he had his first release in 1989 under the name Nevermind, which was only a first step in a series of many more to come.

In order to stay in touch with what was happening in the music scene and to provide proper dance music for those who wanted to know, he started his famous BCM record store in 1994, first in Mechelen, and later on the second store in Brussels (1998), which became the BCM headquarters in 2003.


He worked as A & R Mmanager at BTI, managing labels like Re-load, Nitric, Aquatic, 21st century, Forcefield, Spectron and Aquatic. During that time he was also responsible for successfull compilation series like XXL and History of Techno.

That period also meant the rise of Zzino as an international techno dj/producer. Together with Sinesweeper he had several big projects like Accelerator, Montini Experience, Hyperpearl, House Trap, which only added to his name and fame.

Next to signing established names like Dave Clarke, Felix Da Housecat or Space Djz to the labels, he also had (and still has) an eye and ear for upcoming talent, giving young producers a chance to release their first stuff.

In order to have full artistic control Zzino and Sinesweeper moved on to start up Headroom Music, their own record company. Later on, they split up and Zzino would take control of all the former Headroom labels under the wings of Belgian distributor NEWS.

There he continued the labels Traction, Session, Invasion and Infrared untill they were put on hold in 2005. Next to the production side of things Zzino is also a renowned DJ in the international techno scene. He played in countries like the UK, USA, France, Portugal, Spain, Canada or Croatia.

He has developed a keen sense of the dancefloor, which led him to play the biggest national and international raves and clubs. He continued to move around the music scene, constantly looking for new challenges and opportunities.

Montini (Sint-Truiden) was the second home for Zzino. He was Resident and also his famous Chrome party's and Montini Reunion's are legendary.
