SPECIAL GUEST DJ * MARQUES WYATT
You know the old saying: “When the going gets good…”
Well, things are good among thePeople these days, so its only right to keep it going with legendary dj/producer, Marques Wyatt. Marques is the most respected soulful dance dj on the West Coast of the United States. Ahem…maybe you didn’t catch that…Marques Wyatt is the most respected soulful dance dj on the West Coast. Period.
Although Wyatt is a fixture in an elite class of internationally sought after djs, many folks associate him with “Deep,” the illustrious party that he nurtured in his home town of Los Angeles-thriving there for over a decade. Its almost impossible to overstate the importance of Deep to the West Coast underground music scene. Trying to list the names of famous djs and producers that have appeared there would take too long. If you are a renowned talent in the realm of soulful dance music, you have either played at Deep or you want to. Marques, however, has been a force of nature in LA’s nightlife since the 80’s with historic ventures like “MAC’s Garage” and “Brass.”
Marques’ sets are known to turn huge dance floors into an intimate ritual. His performances bring together a superior knowledge of music, a hunger for new sounds, technical precision, and notions of spiritual and political enlightenment through sound and movement.
Marques’ appearance in Oakland has been long awaited and thePeople is the right place for it to happen. This Saturday, help us welcome Marques.
