DJ Marcia Carr
Marcia Carr aka Marcia DaVinylMC is a woman of many talents – a statement which aptly describes one of the hottest talents in London’s capital. Girl about town party player Marcia, is a long standing club DJ and co-radio presenter of shows on Ministry Of Sound and Colourful radio, and also a member of the London based DJ collective Ladyz™ (aka LadyBugz).
As a former street/jazz dancer she is perfectly placed in understanding how to work up crowds (from festivals sizes to intimate clubs/bars) by taking them on a musical journey that nearly always veers off in to sheer eclectism – an experience of the unexpected.
Her club DJ sets of deeper, soulful, jazzy style encompassing tech house, Afro, gospel house, jazz-funk, disco, broken beat, nu jazz, dubstep, Soul and beyond have also featured on air of a variety of UK radio stations: Colourful, RinseFM, Solar, PushFM, and as far flung as Singapore and Sri Lanka to a host of European neighbours – Estonia, Finland, Norway, Luxembourg, Greece, Ireland, Switzerland, Scotland plus venues like the Ministry Of Sound radio alongside the likes of Bob Sinclair, David Morales and MAW.
Invitations to spin at clubs and parties around the world have continued to find favour and appreciation for Marcia gaining new fans everywhere she goes.
Having spun with some honorary names over the years that include Kerri Chandler, Norman Jay MBE, Larry Heard, Dego (2000Black), Phil Asher, Paul ‘Trouble’ Anderson, Frankie Valentine, Krust, Gilles Peterson, Jeremy Newall, Seamus Haji, Teddy Douglas (The Basement Boys), Marc Mac (4Hero), Ricky Morrison, Bert Bevans, DJ Paulette, Kev Beadle, Johnny Reckless, Jazzie B, Cosmo, Patrick Forge, Booker T, Nikki Lucas, Chris Phillips, Rachel Aubern and many others, she is known as the DJ’s DJ.
On a night off Marcia still has a yearning to take to the dance floor – she’s definitely a girl about town [always supporting the diversified underground electronic dance scenes].
Fitting in journalist contributions also to the Soul Survivors and other dance magazines, Marcia Carr also runs music PR / Artist agency company Talking Music Productions, and hosts of many different events (both club and charity events).
She is involved with studio production and remix work, has also provided independent music consultancy to many organisations, all of which illustrate exactly why she is a tour de force, and still very much in demand around the world.
