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 .
