Best live concert attended:
Kanye West Glow in the Dark Tour. This was a sincere Kanye who was all about a great performance and not the ego people normally talk about. I remember it very well because it was around Mother’s day and his mother had just passed. At one point, VOX DJ’s favorite song (“Don’t Stop Believing” by Journey) was blaring through the amphitheater as he sang in tribute to his mother. Everyone he brought to perform gave an awesome performance and the energy in the area was immense!
Favorite vacation destination:
St. Marteen, it has a feeling of an old city where you can still sense the feelings of an old era of pirates and colonial times. The scenery there is also so amazing.
I am Marcus Brown, also known as DJ Aurelius. I come from Virginia and have been raised around music.
My first memories of music is cleaning the house on Saturday mornings and my mother playing her favorites of Motown, Philly Soul, Disco, and so on. I would later learn those songs and embrace some of them as my own personal favorites.
I actually was very hands on with music. I sang in a choir as a child into my teen years. I later picked up a pair of drum sticks and learn how to play the drums. Which only gave me more passion to learn other percussive instruments like the xylophone, timpani, and eventually the piano. This later evolved as I decided when I was 16 that I was going to pursue a career in music.
I attended Old Dominion University to obtain a Bachelor’s Degree in Music Production. While there, I was trained in Classical piano and broaden my horizons to other genres of music introduced to me by my classmates. I began to DJ after getting my first pair of Pioneer CDJ 800’s. I would play during my events that I coordinated through my own student organization.
After graduating, I landed a job with Carnival Cruise Lines and was able to DJ throughout the seven seas. I was exposed to so many different cultures and so much music, which induced my passion more for music.
Now that I am here in California, I look to DJ as much as possible and make every event a great one!Close
