Your Instructor: Marc Royal, T.Power

Born and raised in the concrete jungle of East London, England, Marc Royal (a.k.a. T.Power) is best known for his unconventional approach to the composition and production of electronic music.  Since 1992, Royal has left a long-lasting imprint on the evolution of electronic music in the UK and is touted as one of the pioneers of  “experimental” or “progressive” soundscapes within the genre.  Over the last twenty-four years, Royal’s work has produced over 200 releases on various international recording labels and five top-100 singles on the UK Singles Charts, including the breakthrough track,“Shake Ur Body” (co-written and co-produced with Shy FX), which reached #7 in 2002.  A self-proclaimed “studio rat”, Royal has, on rare occasion, been coaxed out of seclusion to headline numerous shows in the UK, Europe, Asia, New Zealand, Canada, and the US, and has performed at a number of music festivals across the world, including the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Annual Festival in 2006 with former collaborator, Shy FX.
