I've been obsessed with creating the perfect soundtrack for as long as I can remember. From “pause tapes” in the late 80s to my latest playlists for Oast House Brewers, there’s a constant thread of weaving together the most current pop culture moments with timeless classics. I have over 20 years of diverse experience in music, from tailored event sound to education to consultation and journalism, and everything I do continues to inform and deepen my work as a DJ. See my list of services for more about how my unique experience can work for you.
We love to play great music, and it shows. We can provide the perfect sonic environment for your event, from weddings to private parties, from festivals to product launches. We take care of the details, so you can take care of everything else. Let us make your announcements and introductions, and it's one less thing to worry about. Govorimo Hrvastski.
Lighting and video effects are the easiest way to transform a space, add drama, or get your message across. From simple starry night lights to custom video productions and everything in between, let us show you what will work for you. Additionally, we do live video mixing and have been awarded as winners of Toronto’s Drake Hotel “A/V Battle” and have created customized mixes for Harbourfront Centre, The Niagara Artists Centre, Rodman Hall (Brock University), Om Festival, and Bell Canada.
Do you have a business that needs to sound as good as it looks? Are you looking for a soundtrack that will set your Winery, Restaurant, Brewery or Hotel apart from the competition? We can create a memorable and cutting edge custom playlist or mixes with the appropriate license or find the music to best suit the environment that you are looking to create or enhance.
We have worked to install sound systems, lighting and video in Art Galleries, at events large & small, in Nightclubs and in retail environments. We have also consulted with clients in both the corporate and art worlds who come to us with an A/V idea and as us to come up with a way to make it happen. If you have a media issue that you need addressed, we can find the most appropriate and budget friendly solution for you. Whether you are retrofitting and existing system or starting from scratch, we can help make it happen quickly and on budget!
We can provide workshops or lectures on the following topics: "Turntablist Tutorial," DJ history and techniques, the history of Vinyl in Popular Culture, "Vinyl Interventions," the history of Reggae, Dub, Techno, House and Hip Hop.
“Marinko was easy-going and took a lot of the stress out of planning the music for our wedding, and he had my dad on the dancefloor even though my dad doesn’t dance.” – Angie
“Marinko really listens to what you like in your first meeting and then follows through by playing amazing music! He does a great job at monitoring the crowd and giving them what they want, for all ages. Our friends and family danced all night long and still comment on the great variety of music. For those who really love and care about music or have specific requests, Marinko is the DJ for you!” – Michelle
“Thank you for being one of the best DJs ever! Would love for you to come to Sweden so we can do it again sometime. Hugs!” – Krystal and Andreas
“The Strutt wearable art fashion show is the NAC’s biggest annual fundraiser. Marinko has always brought unique ideas and great energy to the event.” – Stephen Remus (Director, Niagara Artists Centre)
