Marc Gerrard

Marc Gerrard’s DJ roots are firmly planted in Amsterdam, where he lived, worked and enjoyed the culture for several years. He navigated the dark clubs of the late 90’s and early 00’s, a thriving underground scene ripe with innovation, transcendent passion and boundary pushing sound - a perfect place for a young DJ to find his calling. Upon returning to Canada he traded in his Discman for a pair of turntables and a mixer to begin his evolution from music aficionado to full fledged DJ. He further evolved by branching out with the culmination of DE Radio, his current passion project dedicated to supporting likeminded artists who care deeply about the quality of their sound. Marc has poured himself into developing a high quality, commercial free, internet radio experience featuring a dedicated collective of international DJs and producers. 

 

If there is one word to describe the sound Marc has carved out for himself it is “organic”.  Organic in the sense that he places the human factor at the centre of his musical soul. The mainstay of Marc’s sound continuously hearkens back to those early core experiences where the forefront of digital and analogue ignited into deep coursing rhythms, infectious harmonies and musical storytelling that would have the crowd begging for more.  He consistently keeps at the heart of his mixes the drive to bond with his audience so that they can share in the same experiences he had.  He sees his task as a DJ to facilitate the crowd and provide them with a musical landscape into which they can release themselves and for a short time be liberated and connected in the journey.  Come join him for an evening of music and you won’t be disappointed.
