Marcus Nasty has been DJing for over 15 years with his first show on Flava FM in 1999 which was soon followed by guest appearances over the years on many top radio stations such as Kiss FM, BBC Radio1, Radio 1xtra and Choice FM.
His hard work, originality and dedication has since earned him the globally recognised title of being the ‘UK’s number one funky house DJ’ with recent bookings in Amsterdam, Austria, Croatia, Cyprus, Finland, France, Gambia, Germany, Italy, Sweden, Switzerland and the UK.
It was clear from the start that Marcus was going to offer a lot to the music industry after him and his brother Mak Ten brought together and developed some of the the most talented DJs, MCs, Vocalists and Rappers from around the UK to form the group N.A.S.T.Y. (Natural Artistic Sounds Touching You). Since providing a platform and the necessary exposure, many of these underground artists have been breaking through as commercial recording artists including Kano, Ghetto, Jammer, D Double E, Footsie and brothers Griminal and Little Nasty.
Undoubtedly at the forefront of one of the most exciting genres to emerge from London’s underground in recent years and as one of the founding voices of The 3000 Network, Marcus is respected as one of the pioneers of the UK funky house scene as well as a long time supporter of Grime which has been led by his highly respected residency on London’s award winning Rinse FM, which he has now been a part of for over 10 years.
Marcus continues to mix the music, but also pushes the sounds of UK Funky and World Bass Music by finding talented artists and producers all over the world and promotes their music through his radio show, event bookings and a new collective, his ‘Exceptional DJs’.
