Several years later, after moving to Pennsylvania, Martian had his opportunity to spin. His friend held a house party where the booked DJ didn’t show up. This was his chance! It led him to DJ for the very first time. As DJ Martian showed off his newly discovered talent, many of the party-goers that evening danced the whole night through.
Coming from a bustling and fast-paced environment, DJ Martian knew what type of music to play and had very strong transitions. After high school, he attended the Institute of Audio Research. While there, he gained his first employment at Emmis Communications (KISS FM). Although Kiss FM is no longer a station through Emmis, he was able to obtain a position with the Hot 97 Street Team. He interned at Hot 97, then landed a gig as Promotions Assistant. In 2015, DJ Martian was a Producer/Mix Show DJ for Hot 97’s DJ Funk Flex from 7pm-12am.
DJ Martian has DJ’d at acclaimed events such as Jacob Javits Car Show, Metro PCS Hot 97 Takeover, Hot 97 Summer Jam, and various college-marketed events throughout New York City. He’s worked alongside big name DJ’s – DJ Funk Flex, DJ Bobby Trends and Mister Cee.
