Singapore's reigning Pioneer DJ Battle champion DJ MARCUS, best known as the renegade
dancefloor governor of Singapore's biggest club Zirca from 2008 to 2012, prevailed at the helm of
his monthly resident night Electric Playgrnd which was one of the biggest, baddest and maddest
parties in the city. DJ MARCUS provides an aural assault that is definitely not for the meek,
delivering a marathon of sexy electrohouse, tripped out tech and blissful breaks with exclusive
drops of killer beats, sweet wobbles and rib-shakin' bass to the neon ravers for an electrifying
Marcus first entered a club at a mere 15 years old and was amazed by the way a DJ rocked the crowd.
It was then that he decided he wanted to move the masses like that DJ did. Friends taught him to match
beats, tighten mixes and equalize tunes. He spun his first notes as a DJ freelancing at filipino tea dance
parties to gain experience.
It wasn't long before he started working as a professional DJ starting with PinkK in 2002. Since then,
Marcus has continued to rock a series of dancefloors at some of the hottest spots across Singapore
over his years: Shin Bar, Mad Monks, SOS, Chinabar, Living Room, Rouge, Thumper, Club Momo (in
Singapore and in Penang), DXO, Q Bar, before arriving at Singapore's premier nightspot The Cannery –
dropping his beats across celebrated outlets Barfly, Kandi Bar, The Fashion Bar and was soon rewarded
with a resident position at the highly illustrious Ministry Of Sound Singapore (Studio 54 and the Main
Arena), wiring up the clubbers with his versatility, cruising through big genres such as Retro, Commercial
House, House and Electro. With an astute ear for music and insatiable energy behind the decks, it was
there at Ministry of Sound that he made his first resident night "Frooty Loops", dishing out generous
dosages of electro to happy crowds.
In 2009, Marcus entered his first ever DJ competition and went on to win, becoming Singapore's
Champion in the Pioneer DJ Battle (Asia Pacific) and represented the country at the 2010 Asia Pacific
Grand Final in Jakarta. He has graced the same stage and provided flawless opening sets for big acts
such as Bass Agents, Datarock, Hostage, Infadels, Act Yo Age, Bobby Tee & Juan Kidd, Lee Haslam,
Niklas Harding, Matt Darey, John 'OO' Fleming, Stanton Warriors, Hijack, Matt Hardwick, Thrillseekers,
Kentaro, Evil Nine, Shitdisco, Lee Mortimer, Bobby Tee & Micky Slim, The Freestylers, Krafty Kuts,
Caged Baby, Moguai, Mykal, AC Slater, Boris Dlugosch, Zombie Disco Squad, Reset, Nervo, Treasure
Fingers, Kim Fai, Sound Of Stereo, B.Traits, Diplo, Oliver Twizt, Will Bailey.
Expect nothing less than a fine display of deft touch, craftsmanship, and pounds of bravado from
the region's very best.
