DJ Marlon Bizzy has music flowing through his veins. He was born and raised on NYC’s Upper West Side when it was all about hip hop jams and break moves. The obsession started while leafing through his parents’ record collection of Latin Jazz, Salsa, Disco, and rock n’ roll, watching relatives and friends spin records at community events, and finding his way on his brother’s DJ equipment. At 9 years old, he was already absorbing the music playing on the radio and recording his own joints.
Marlon Bizzy is true school. Some of his favorite memories stem from when he was just getting into the DJ game, on nights when he and his small entourage would travel from community centers to kids’ basements with records and equipment in hand, ready to flip the script. Years of experience have now made him a force. His combination of raw talent, versatility, and passion for his craft sets him apart from the newcomers. Together with a natural charisma that he brings to the stage of any event, Marlon Bizzy captivates party goers and rivals alike. Point blank, he knows how to move a crowd, feeling what his audience needs and delivering the goods with powerful impact.

Past dates include screening after parties for "The Wrestler", "The Hangover", "Obsessed", "Flawless", "Hurt Locker", the Jay Z "Fade to Black" movie premiere party at 40/40 club, as well as Richard Branson’s Virgin America event at The Box. Other recent projects include spinning for the Sean Jean X Jean Basquiat event for NYC Fashion Week, the annual Puerto Rican Day Parade for Proctor & Gamble, and rocking the “Night at the Mansion” event at the Versace Mansion, Miami.
