Biography

Sao Paulo, the second biggest metropolis in the world, doesn’t have the picturesque charm of Rio De Janeiro. This bustling megalopolis is nonetheless the cultural heart of Brazil, at the forefront of every new movement, and is the centre of Brazil’s thriving dance music scene.

This is where Marky, real name Marco Silva, and Xerxes De Oliveira also known as XRS come from. They grew up to the sounds of Brazilian traditional music, Jazz and Funk, before the Acid House explosion captured their teenage imagination. Their mutual love for the fast rhythms of hardcore brought them together in a record shop where Marky worked and they quickly became fixtures on the emerging local drum and bass scene, one as an outgoing and vivacious DJ, the other as a quiet but affable and talented engineer and producer.

Marky’s status as a DJ grew rapidly, thanks to his extraordinary mixing skills and the sheer energy of his sets. Soon, he was playing regularly to more than 5,000 people at clubs in the ‘peripheria’ of the city. His reputation spread nationwide, with residencies in Sao Paulo and Rio, regular radio shows and even his own slot on MTV Brazil. He won DJ Of The Year three times in four years, becoming a household name.
