Marcus Marr (DJ set)
Marcus Marr is an English DJ, multi-instrumentalist, artist, and music producer.

A music obsessive all his life, Londoner Marr's first encounters with dance music were the acid house records which augmented his vinyl collection of rock and soul.

In his teens he attended all night dance parties under Brixton's St Matthews church. But only after traveling to the south of England to watch DJ Harvey play a lengthy set did he see the kind of power a DJ can wield over a willing crowd.

Productions: after years spent honing his skills, his song "The Music", was featured prominently in the 2012 film "Pusher", starring Richard Coyle and Agyness Dean. The single's B-Side "Pleasure Moon" was used to open the 2014 Versace show in Milan. Additionally, it was placed at #3 in Spin Magazine's "The 40 Best Dance Tracks of 2013", bested only by Daft Punk and Todd Terje.

Playing all of the EU and in the US, Marr plays wide-ranging dj sets that show the scope of his influences from disco to house to techno, peppering them with new, unreleased grooves and his own personal edits of classic material.
