Markus Kampschulte, the owner and founder of Loftsound near to Dortmund, is a music fanatic and a jack-of-all-trades. He and his brother Stefan are experienced sound engineers and Markus plays the guitar in several bands, which can occasionally be seen on television. The two brothers opened the high-end sound studio Loftsound in 2005 on the premises of an old loft that they had skilfully converted into a paradise for like-minded music lovers.
