“Connoisseur of deep, infectious dance grooves with a feel-good atmosphere.”
That’s how Marc Montoya describes himself as a DJ. Never afraid to go to take on risks to bend genres, his emotive musical selections are his own therapy. Born in Jersey City, New Jersey raised in Long Beach, California, Marc has always had a passion for music. Marc began Dj’ing at the age of 16 at local house parties and school functions. As soon as Marc fell in love with Hip Hop, he quickly became enthusiastic about Dj’ing. “Ive always felt impassioned about entertaining people through music and dance.” Having grown up on his older cousins eclectic combination of funk, pop, synth-infused 80s… all which became infused with his own love for both hip-hop and video game tunes, Marc ended up with quite a mixed spectrum of musical influences. Today, this translates into his sets where he picks apart and blends together all the pieces of this music that he loves best: beautiful synth work, essential slapping drums , brooding basslines, and occasional vocal hooks… all on top of a pronounced foot-shuffling two step beat.
A very active individual of his current home of New York City, Marc is no stranger to the music scene. Though he loves playing in bars and nightclubs and special events, his love for music goes beyond the spectrum of mixing tunes. As a former producer, pianist, and promoter, he has found plenty of ways to express himself musically. Marc has successfully attempted to take what he has learned thus far, and create his own niche in the entertainment world that sets him apart from others. Marc can be heard DJ’ing everything from Hip Hop, EDM, Top 40, to 80′s and more, Marc not only wants to be known as an International DJ, he wants to venture into the world of artist management, and even put his own mark in the fashion industry. Sky's the limit.
Life isn’t about finding yourself. It’s about creating yourself.
