Marcus Shadden aka Marcus the Artist is a DJ/Producer/Designer based in Los Angeles, California.


An early introduction to the underground rave and warehouse party scene ignited his passion for the DJ culture at a young age. Besides being a B-Boy (break dancer) during this time, Marcus also frequented hiphop shows and beat battles. These two scenes, though very different, further fueled his love for both hiphop and electronic music. Having immersed himself in such a diverse musical landscape has put him in a very unique position that he calls “somewhere in the middle”. His style of DJing, which he has identified as “juxtaposition”, is all about creating a distinct blend of music from all genres.


Marcus has been playing clubs and events all over the US for the past decade with residencies in Chicago and Los Angeles. He is currently producing music for artists C-Tru, Chelsea Perkins, Jen Jones, Nikki Lynette, Alex Deguzman, Mr Robotic, & more.
