Marc started to DJ out of a simple need for music at an event... Today, tango music inspires, amazes, and sometimes even drives Marc crazy! His intuitive sense for what simply works, a deep schooling in tango music history, and a never-ending quest for sonic excellence, makes comments like "I couldn't sit down all night; the music was incredible!" pretty common.
Marc was the resident DJ of two weekly milongas in Buenos Aires and currently DJs in and around his new hometown of San Diego.
