DJ Marky & MC GQ Brazil/UK
DJ Marky & MC GQ
Born in Brazil, DJ Markey made his name two decades ago on the London drum and bass scene. As in an in-demand remixer he’s worked on tracks by Madonna, Fatboy Slim and Everything But The Girl as well as releasing his own albums fusing drum and bass with full-tilt club beats and laid-back house grooves.
At WOMAD he will team up with top UK ‘mic controller’ MC GQ. One of the pioneers of the London jungle/drum and bass scene, he sees his role as a ‘middle man’ between the DJ and audience. “It’s all about reading the crowd, and adapting your style,” he says.
