Back to Mars
Back to Mars is Marcia, a Brazilian who moved to Europe, and started playing in 2001 at the legendary underground 9Lives of Hofmann parties in Amsterdam. Since then, she grew as an international DJ, playing in major festivals like O.Z.O.R.A., MoDem, Wonderland, Own Spirit, Free Earth, Hadra, Psy-Fi, WAO, Transition, WAHA, Hai in Den Mai, Sunshine, Ritual, Antaris, Space Safari, Sunburn, Universo Paralello, Sonica, Boom, Utopia, Solstice and others, around Europe, Mexico, Goa, Japan and South America.
2019 has been a great summer for Back to Mars, when she performed at many festivals and also at very good slots like in O.Z.O.R.A. (between the Parvati night and Parasense), the Parvati stage of Free Earth Festival in Greece, and Hadra Festival on Saturday afternoon.
Musically, her taste keeps mutating and evolving. Recently her favorite styles are Forest, Groovy Night Psy and Driving Prog, which she represents via the labels Occulta Records and Omveda Records.
This diversity in musical styles has created an eclectic DJ who enjoys playing daytime and night music, or a combination of styles if she is making one of her classic transitional DJ sets.
As well as Psytrance, she also plays Deep Techno and Psychedelic Techno under her side project Marciana.
Out of the decks, she is the person responsible for the music programming of Trance Orient Express and Solstice Festival at Ruigoord, as well as Bom Voyage in Amsterdam.
