Marc van Brabant:
Original from the Nethelands has traveled the world and has played over 20 counties. At the age 14 he amazed fellow dutch dj's by mixing tapes on his Akai Tape Decks at high school dances. He commented that it was easy as the Akai tape decks at an automatic search button on it so no biggie. After moving up to cd players he still had a search for knowledge and studied for his master's in England, when he was not studying he was a bottle collector for Gate Crasher in the U.K. He collected the best bottles but he was always listening to the sounds of Pete Tong, Marco V and other top dj's. Then he made a break to start his dj career in a small pub in england where there was more fighting than dancing but here he found a niche what music stimilates violence and what induces love.
After a lot of the latter and a Master's in International Business Marc van Brabant decided to fight for his country as a Naval Officer and became inspired with all the Arabic beats surrounding him. Then at the height of the Gulf War, MVB moved to the USA to fill the deep need for Arabic and Persian DJ's. Many were too terrified to even play anything foreign sounding. But Marc van Brabant was not scared for any enemy especially an enemy of good music. He put a Euro Beat to the Best Persian and Arabic Music he acquired and within months the fans were speaking Farci to him as they thought he must be one of us as his knowledge of the music was beyond realization. Marc van Brabant became the no.1 Persian Arabic DJ with a blend of Dutch Electronic in Northern California for 7 years.
Then in 2004, Marc realized that he was from the Netherlands and after meeting with a friend who had a Hardwell mix, he realized that it was his Patriotic duty to introduce the rich Dutch Electronic sound to America. This was a failing endeavor and became the most hated DJ for the general clubs as they had never heard of Chuckie, AfroJack, and Hardwell. But as a true fighter he kept on mixing his Dutch Ideal Music into his American requests of Billy Jean and Various Sold out hip hop artists. So as the pioneer of the Dutch Electronic Sound in SF he only felt relief in the annual Queensday party he organizes together with other dutch organizations. There a launch of Electronic music splurged after he DJ'ed on Union Square for 4000 people with his Dutch DJ's ensemble of Nickie Romero, Quintin, and old skool dj Jean. So many questions where in the air and so many people realized that they do in fact love Electronic Music in the USA.
So everybody who had money bought laptops, Serato and Shazaamed MVB's music and tried to imitate his style and for 4 years it worked as the crowds just liked the music and the auto synched Serato beats however the audience is a more music educated audience and are not satisfied with 2 minute song mixed copycats. They need to have their envelope pushed to the musical frontiers. This is good news for Marc van Brabant as his not so good beat matches is no match to the 2 min addj's however his style plus his front forward thinking will always give the listener more excitement and a story told by his music as it was a beautiful passionate dream
Marc van Brabant laughs at his critics and just remarks that I have never DJ'ed where there was no fight or kissing going on the dance floor. I prefer kissing but i would rather have people fight then be drones to mass produced music. He agrees that there is a certain passion for him to get the right song as he researches for weeks at a time to simply attain the best recorded remix he heard of a sound track of an independent film from the 1980's. It is the search is 100 percent of the work the pressing of the button of a cd player is none. So if you want to hear some fun come check out Marc van Brabant, just his life story is fun enough to listen to. jimmy of online music enthusiast media.
