Fresh raised and handpicked from the House groves of Orlando, Florida, USA. Markis began his DJ start among the times top clubs and DJs. Always interested and influenced by music he took to learning and playing the piano, guitar and flute fluently at an early age.
Markis found his way through the operation and scene of local Orlando clubs as a young sound and lighting engineer. Constantly surrounded and consumed by hard driving House, Markis couldn’t resist hitting the decks himself in 1998. With his focus and sight set on moving the dance floor he acquired residencies at Orlando’s ICON, Firestone, Zinc Bar and Tabu aka the Beecham
Theatre. This giving him the opportunity to play alongside well known DJs such as, Dave Cannalte, Kimball Collins, Cliff T, Hybrid, Donald Glaude, Taylor, Gabriel & Dresden, Timo Maas, DJ Three, DJ Dan and more.
His success paved his way to Miami’s Bangin’ South Beach, where he played many top clubs and still currently receives a yearly invite to annual parties at Miami’s Winter Music Conference.
While bringing his unique progressive/electro house & breaks blend to clubs across the US (GA,NV, AZ, SC, MA, DC), in 2007 Markis followed a short side-stop in Denver, CO that lead him to hisfirst International gig at Mexico City´s well known after hours club, the Doberman. This opened
the door of invitation to play a weekly residency poolside at Maxim Magazine’s Beach Club @ME Hotel in Cancun, Mexico.
Markis has recently returned back to the US after a nearly 4 year stay in Lima, Peru. He is the first North American DJ to hold a weekly residency in South America - at Bartini Lounge in Lima, Peru, for two years. Blowing up dance floors across Lima's many clubs (Gotica, Aura, Casa Vieja, Xcess, Cabash, Insomnia, Macarena, just to name a few), Markis also played a variety of private & beach events through his years spent in Peru. He is the first North American DJ invited to play in some smaller Peruvian cities including Cusco and Arequipa, & the first International DJ invited to play in Tarapoto, Huacachina, Cajamarca and Chiclayo.
With many ventures in sight, including music production, Markis will continue to hit and help develop the dance music scene hard.
