Marcelle has quickly become recognized as a prominent figure in the Los Angeles nightlife scene. Spinning at top venues and high profile events all across Southern California, she is well- respected and sought after for her in-depth musical knowledge and unique mixes.
Unrestricted by genre or era, her extreme passion for music and broad tastes are evident. Starting off as a singer/songwriter who played guitar and piano, she taught herself Pro Tools and started producing her own electronic and electro-pop music. Already a fanatical collector of vintage records, DJing naturally followed after her first EP of orginal music landed on URB’s next list.
While recording in NYC, she began DJing alongside long-time pal DJ Mia Moretti and created remixes for Peaches, Katy Perry, The Asteroids Galaxy Tour, and Notorious B.I.G. that led to several residencies when she returned west. Garnering praise from both club-goers and industry professionals, she is now specifically requested for fashion shows, local festivals, and noteworthy events as both a DJ and a performing artist.
In just the past year, she DJ'd the stage for the hugely successful 2nd Annual Hudson Block Party and Sunset Strip Music Festival, opened for Posso, and performed with her band at the Moheak Radio LAxLA Festival.
When Marcelle is not out spinning or performing music, she is creating it. Currently, she is in the studio between sets recording a release titled LA FAIM D’EVE.
Christian was born in Guatemala City, and in '89 moved to Southern California. In the early 90’s he fell in love with his father’s music (classic rock, Latin jazz, funk & soul), his mother’s music (80’s new wave & 70’s R&B) and the golden sound of hip hop he heard on the radio (KDAY & The Beat 92.3).
In '95, Christian was introduced to the art of the DJing by 3 classmates who were DJs. From that day he was hooked and went hunting for his own pair of turntables. He eventually made a name for himself by playing parties, clubs & even some raves all throughout Southern California. In '99, he was introduced to the battle culture when he came across the 1991 DMC World Championship VHS. From that moment on, he focused on one goal and one goal only: making it to the USA DMC Finals. In 2012, he became a National Champion by winning the 2012 DMC USA Team Championships.
In 2013, he’s focused more than ever and back to rocking dance floors all throughout the West Coast with his keen musical sense & his world renowned turntable skills. He is also currently focusing on producing music as well as producing turntable routines that he will be releasing online on a for the world to see. For Christian, the music will never stop.
