Hailing from Sao Paulo, Brazil, he has snapped up his fair share of awards from his home town. He has won #1 DJ in Brazil at the RMC Awards in 2012 and The Personality of Brazil at the RMC Awards in 2013.

After hitting London around 1998 he quickly picked up residencies at The End and Club Movement. Linking in with the likes of Goldie and DJ Hype, combined with his work at BBC Radio 1 saw him move quickly to the top of the UK Scene and beyond.

Marky draws his inspiration from various acts, including bands and DJ’s, such as The Doors, Black Sabbath, The Brand New Heavies, Urban Species, Jamiroquai and many many more. He is also influenced by many sounds and genres including Funk, Soul, Brazilian Music including Samba, Jazz, 70’s Psychedelic Rock, Reggae, Disco, Deep House, Hardcore Breakbeats and Techno. As you can see, he isn’t one to pigeon hole into one sound and allows his music to speak through various genres .

 El Burro

Rumoured to have the blue-prints for Krang's TechnoDrome, stolen straight from Dimension X, he’s the type of guy who exudes so much coolness that he adds whole countries on Facebook at one time instead of just people. Always up for a party and a Tequila shot or two this is the guy who we always call first, both before and after a night out…

  1. Seriously though. My internal organs are out of control. I can’t handle all this good news. First, DJ Marky, The Editors and Wolfmother get announced for Oppi. Then, I get a lekker rapport back from Uni and THEN Sonar Cape Town absolutely blows my groin area straight out the park by announcing 2manydj’s.

    How is any sane person supposed to deal with this?

    Also. I’ve never had El Burro. But I have had Doritos Nacho Supreme. That counts right?

    P.s- Does DJ Marky even like Mexican Food?

  2. Well, I happen to be flying down from JHB to CPT specifically for that Marky gig coz I feel he’ll be well supported with the Veteran DJ’s that’l be on that stage with him. I certainly believe a monumental night is upon us. Oh, and I’ve atleast been to a dnb event every month for the last 4 years consistently so 🙂 Haha. Big tings a gwaan.

  3. Only two comments!? I’m here because a good friend, he is my authority on all things DnB, told me about the gig after he saw DJ Marky in Sao Paulo. I’m sure he would be really keen to go to the dinner. He doesn’t get out much these days. And especially since he also used to dabble in DJ’ing a bit back in our university days.
