Brazilian drum and bass legend, DJ Marky, is set to play one of only two shows in South Africa presented by Red Bull Studios at Assembly Cape Town.
DJ Marky’s claim to fame
In a career stretching well over two decades, São Paulo-based Marco Antonio Silva (aka DJ Marky) has gone from a dedicated record collector and music fanatic in his native Brazil to an internationally respected crowd pleasing DJ, producer and label owner.
Since the early 90’s, DJ Marky has become a veritable superstar in his Brazilian homeland claiming several DJ Of The Year awards there before the end of the century.
In 1998 he started to invade England with residencies at The End and Club Movement. Linking in with the likes of DJ Hype and Goldie, his work at BBC Radio 1 saw him move quickly to the top of the UK scene and beyond.
In 2001 he dropped one of the biggest selling drum and bass compilations of all time – Brazilian Job. And with LK, produced by Marky and XRS, he reached number 15 in the UK charts and gained a prime spot on Top Of The Pops.
