Some call him “the hardest working man in House” while Traxsource named him the #1 Jackin' House Artist of 2014 (http://news.traxsource.com/articles/1626/top-100-jackin-house-artists-of-2014).
Known for his ability to take things to a deeper level while maintaining the energy that keeps the dance floors moving, Demarkus Lewis has grown to be one of the most diverse dance artists in underground house music today. From tech-house bombs on labels such as Nervous Records, soulful nuggets on Kingstreet Soundz, hypnotizing afro rhythms on Slip n Slide, body-jackin’ grooves on Guesthouse, deep and raw deliciousness on Lost My Dog, and everything in-between on his own Grin Music/Grin Traxx/Grin & Bass imprints, time and time again Demarkus has exhibited his staying power.
With decades of experience as a DJ, Demarkus has found himself commanding the decks of infamous venues such as Stompy (San Francisco), Club Rayo (Argentina), Metro Bass (Rotterdam), Silo (Belgium), H20 (Belgium), The Office (Republic of Georgia), Propaganda (Moscow), Neighborhood (London), and Tresor (Berlin); with repeated performances in Chicago’s world-renowned home for House Music, Smartbar.
Demarkus’ relentless dedication to his craft is reflected in his busy schedule, whether he’s performing in clubs around the globe, squeezing in time for interviews, recording guest mixes for radio shows and media publications, or expanding his home base label, Grin Music. His rhythm, beats, and signature bounce are as irresistible as his DJ sets; it’s for this very reason Demarkus has firmly secured his place in dance music’s foundation for future generations, and remains in-demand by both new and old school dance music lovers worldwide.
