DJ Marky

The last time I saw Marky, at the (now-defunct) War Room, the place was packed with beautiful bodies sweating it out to the Brazilian DJ’s edgily uptempo style of drum ‘n’ bass. The sense of communal joy was so high that a stranger kissed me on the dancefloor - now that’s a party. Discovered by V Recordings’ Bryan Gee back in ’98, Marco Antonio Silva has been known for his energetic scratching and his smiling face ever since. His recent Kings of Drum + Bass, compiled and mixed with the legendary 4Hero, is a lesson in everything you never knew the genre had: particularly, sunshine and soul. With Kid Hops, SunTzu Sound.
