Since April of 2010, DJ Marty has been booked 46 times on GigMasters! So, we wanted to dig deeper and find out more about this in-demand DJ from Charlotte. He was kind enough answer our questions and share some hot playlists...DJ Marty style!
What style of music are you spinning these days?
Most of my private parties are Top 40/Urban with some Electronic Dance Music (EDM) getting some good results. Teens love Dubstep, EDM and Top 40/Urban that is no more than a year old, unless it was a strong hit in the past 2 years. Older audiences are always perfect with some classics from the 80s, 90s and 2000s. The last hour usually transitions to current hits and solid club bangers. I usually try to incorporate remixes that are not to over the top which helps you stand out. Also don't ever underestimate the power of an old club hit! And yes, it’s the south so a splash of danceable country always helps! Charlotte is a big melting pot of people from all over so I take time to qualify my customer to determine their needs and if I will be a good fit.
What are you NOT spinning?
Classic Rock and Old Coutry
Hottest track right now?
"Gangnam Style" by Psy is very hot right now. Some of the record pools have a mashup called "Gangnam and I Know It" which is a mashup of "Gangnam Style" and LMFAO’s "Sexy and I Know It" that will get great results on a dance floor!
Your most memorable gig?
The most memorable gig was a wedding I did a few years back that was suppose to end at 10pm. There was so much energy the bride and groom paid for overtime. Needless to say we all were having a blast and we kept going until 1am!
What are the crowds like at your gigs?
I usually have a lively bunch that want to do a bit of socializing the first hour to loosen it up, then they get the party started and stay packed on the dance floor. People in Charlotte like to PARTY!
