Tonight, New York City gets to experience one of the absolute legends of the American house scene, Mark Farina, at the internationally renowned club Marquee. With locations in Sydney, Australia, Las Vegas, and now New York City, Marquee has everything one could ask for in a swanky nightclub: two levels, multiple bars, leather couches, and a Funktion One soundsystem to provide the crispest sounds available to club-goers. More important than the aesthetics and soundsystem though, is the DJ in the booth, and Farina is one of the best anyone could ask for.
After developing an interest in the Chicago's house scene in Chicago, where resided during the late 1980s, Farina began experimenting with the art of DJing himself. Oftentimes he was found spinning sounds like old school disco and hip hop of the early/mid 1990s that were not seeing any time in local clubs. With several years of experience on the decks, the 90s saw him develop his own style known as "mushroom jazz." By taking the downtempo sounds of acid jazz and fusing them with the West Coast's organic hip hop he created a completely original sound that helped launch him into worldwide stardom, which has lasted the better part of two decades. Now living in San Francisco, Farina's fusion of old school house from his hometown of Chicago and new school west coast grooves continue to gain him recognition alongside top DJs from across the globe. Do not miss the chance to see this living legend take over one of New York City's hottest venues, and be sure to bring your dancing shoes--his sets have been known to top eight hours on a good night.
