// DOC MARTIN //
If there was a house DJ in America who could accurately claim to be the most important house DJ working today, it would be Doc Martin. But then, Doc would never accept such a title even if it happens to be true, because Doc is not only a legendary talent but a legendarily humble man.
The Doc began his mission on the decks back in the summer of 1986. His focus on house music from the land of funk and disco, was triggered while playing the club and warehouse scene in San Francisco. As one of the major players in laying the foundations of a strong West Coast dance scene, Doc has always been a master of mixing the crowd with the music. Neatly avoiding pigeonholing, while embracing a myriad of different styles, his set creates a warm unique vibe of empathy on the dance floor.
While most star DJ's are one-note musicians sticking to a single subgenere of music, Doc' s live sets bring many styles of music as well as people together. In this age of specialized formats among DJ's and producers, what sets Martin apart from his peers is his ability to spin everything from deep house, acid, funk, tribal, and classics in a set, while having it all make sense. Doc is one of the most sought after DJs in America. Constantly touring, he can be found playing records everywhere from England to New Zealand, and everywhere in between. As the first West Coast DJ to ever hold many residencies in New York, he continues to spread the gospel according to Doc.
Now residing in L.A. he has begun to spread his vibe through making music in the studio as well as playing it. Doc's magic continues to grow, whether it is on the turntables or in the studio. He is a future legend of house and loved by thousands all over the world. Music over hype will always be Doc's message of love. There are no stars just dance floors and the ability to tap into their energies.
// MARQUES WYATT //
Sonic love travels in many dimensionsâ€”through visceral pathways of the senses, as a uniting force on dance floors everywhere, in movements spanning entire eras to unifyâ€”whether souls, states or nations. And as sonic love relates to house music, Marques Wyatt is a seminal pioneer.
In the mid â€˜80s, at a time when the shape shifting of house music was rarely heard outside Chicago and New York, Marques introduced the East Coast sound to his native Los Angeles via legendary house parties like BBC, MAC's Garage and Does Your Mama Know, to name a few. In the ensuing years, his prowess as a talented DJ, promoter, and producer earned him recognition as one of the most sought-after artists in the genre, domestically and internationally. Always true to his inner visionary, Marques continued his ventures into uncharted territory by introducing Los Angeles to â€œacid jazzâ€ through Brass, his unforgettable weekly which debuted the live performances of high profile acts such as Jamiroquai and the Brand New Heavies way back when. At the same time, Marques continued playing his own brand of uncompromising, soulfully organic house alongside talents such as Frankie Knuckles, Louie Vega, David Morales, Danny Tenaglia, King Britt, Mark Farina and Miguel Migs. Marquesâ€™s keen sixth sense for creating epic parties culminated in his weekly house institution, Deep, now going strong in its tenth year.
Marques has also channeled his gifts in the studio, releasing tracks and remixes on revered labels like Om, Strictly Rhythm, King Street, Nervous and Yoshitoshi. Marques continues to spread the gospel of house music by globe-trotting everywhere from Los Angeles to New York, Shanghai to Barcelona and Tel Aviv to Dubai with the mission to bring musical unity, light and love to all souls in his pathway.
