DJ MAARS [UK]
With his roots in dub-wise party music, Maars first reached for the turntables and mixer in sunny Southsea, U.K. Quickly rising up through the underground scene, he gained several club night residencies, seeing him share stages with the likes of David Rodigan, Ms Dynamite, JFB, DJ Fresh, Subfocus and Jaguar Skills to name a few.
It wasn’t until 2010 he started producing music, uniquely fusing reggae, dancehall, breaks, funk and classic hip hop, helping him gain worldwide interest from DJ’s, record labels and party people alike. It was soon after he grabbed the attention of Booty Fruit Records, helping him be part of six E.P’s, all of which reaching No.1 in the Juno charts. His latest collaboration with Melbourne based Ghettofunk producer, Tom Showtime, saw the release of The Chippa Irie EP, which claimed the No.1 across the all genres spot for over 2 weeks.
With several exiting new releases and collaborations in the pipeline, he had the chance to play multiple party rocking sets at some big U.K festivals over the summer. Being known for his genre-mashing, booty shakin’, floor filling sets, he is currently on the road in Australia, aiming to bring his own brand of musical mischief to a venue near you…
