March is coming in hot at Electric Pawn Shop as this bar and restaurant in the Top 50 Best Discovery List presents master spinner Marc Hype on March 11. Award-winning turntable genius and co-owner Lobito Brigante will also be performing side-by-side ensuring another epic weekend at this vibrant spot.
With a career spanning almost 30 years, there’s no doubt Marc Hype is a sure shot partyrocker who represents a more eclectic view on Hip Hop and Funk. He started his DJ career, inspired by the late great Jam Master Jay, around 1988 and went through the several decades of hip hop with countless releases, tours and competitions like the German ITF championships, which he won twice in 98 & 99. During this time, he collaborated and recorded with artists like Masta Ace, Souls Of Mischief, Edo G., Zion I, Beat Junkies, DJ Z-Trip, Akrobatik & Mr. Lift to name a few. His solo-debut album “1973 * Recon“ became “Album of the month“ in Europe’s biggest Hip Hop Magazine JUICE in 2003.
In the year 2004 he met world class pianist Jim Dunloop in Berlin and quickly they began to collaborate on shows and production. His proven skills on the decks combined with the undisputed talent of Dunloop’s key wizardry followed their first vinyl releases in 2005 on the infamous Milk Crate label, “The Antique Anthem”, “Bombay Raw” & “Finale 74”, which were very successful in the worldwide dj-circuit, followed by a cover version of Babe Ruth’s “The Mexican” in 2006, which was dubbed by UK’s Jazzman Gerald as “the” version to have. In 2009 the album “Stamp out reality” was released on Melting Pot Music, which featured artists like the legendary Blowfly, Mr Complex, Malena Perez & Lady Daisey. Besides that, he hosted several highly acclaimed event series like Rap History Berlin or the SoulClap! Tours in Germany and Asia.
Nowadays, he’s travelling the world in his 45s bag as part of the Berlin / London / Hamburg based Dusty Donuts crew and label, as well as a member of the UK-based international 45 Live DJ Circle, still spreading the original values of Hip Hop Culture and Crate Digging.
