In 1999 he was chosen the best DJ in the country by Folha de Sao Paulo newspaper. MarkyLs international success is very well documented and has significantly reflected on the Brazilian scene for more than ten years, because he is still the DiscJockey with more evidence in the electronic music scene of the country. His ability and technique have won fans all over the world and today, with his personality and charisma, he manages to attract crowds. With a massive coverage in Brazil, Europe, the United States, Asia, Australia and Czech Republic, Marky became an authority on the floors of every country and city where he passed. The DJ goes on tour around the world for at least 6 months every year.
His album, Brazilian Job, was one of the best Drum NLBass records in sales and one of the most successful for the time of its release. The version for the song Carolina Carol Bela, by Jorge Bem Jor, entitled LK, reached the 15 th place in Britain‘s Top Chart. The only artists who came close to this feat were Tom Jobim and Sepultura band. Marky managed to get a unique position that has never been reached before by a Brazilian artist in the English Charts.
Marky has been winning the audience in general that listen to other kinds of music, especially those related to old school (classic funk & soul from theL70s andL80s), which is something not many people know, because Marky is a passionate and inveterate lover of rare grooves & jazz.
A maniac vinyl collector, he owns one of the biggest classic collections anyone has ever heard of. He is currently in the vanguard of clubs and the Brazilian electronic music. He was a resident DJ at the Love Club in the weekly night called VIBE for almost a decade in Sao Paulo, including guests of the highest level and importance in DB.
The distribution of the latest CD, In Rotation, in partnership with XRS (Xerxes), was by Universal Music, after years as an exclusive artist by TRAMA. Marky has started his new monthly night at The End, in London, in the second half of 2005, called marky & Friends, which takes his Top Deejays friends from many different nationalities to join him on the decks to play the sounds that influenced and inspired them in their lives, productions and, obviously, the new tendencies in electronic music worldwide beforehand. In the Marky & Friends nights people will certainly be surprised to see and listen to TOP DEEJAYS playing the real Funk, Soul, Jazz and Rare Grooves. The project also arrives in Sao Paulo/Brazil, where Marky will take on the decks at Emuzik in Vila Olimpia with his Friends and monthly will be able to show why he is the best of the world!
