DJ Galo Marquez


Read the DJ Galo Marquez Interview below and share it on social media.


Please tell our readers who you are and what you do?


I am Galo Marquez, banker by day and DJ by night. I got into the DJ scene during my freshman year in college and was gigging every weekend by my junior year. I honed my skills under veteran DJ Matthew Carbonell and a DJ school called Beat Project Manila. I mastered the basic fundamentals of the craft and had since expanded my repertoire. Currently I am a full time banker doing foreign exchange sales for EastWest bank. You can check out my SoundCloud:


How would you describe your influences and how have they changed over the years?


My first influences were artists in the festival scene, namely Swedish House mafia, Alesso, and Otto knows. I started learning the craft mainly through house music (progressive, mainstream and deep house). However as I expanded my network in the nightlife industry, my musical tastes have changed. I now do a lot of hip-hop, RNB, and some indie and experimental music.


What´s new right now?


Right now, I’m still searching for my niche in terms of musical tastes and style. However, since taking on my full time job, I have kept quite a low profile for the meantime due to the difficulty of balancing two careers. However, I am not completely dormant as I still do some bar, club and event gigs once in a while. But my behind-the-scenes work never stops as I continually update myself with the latest music, etc and put in my hours of practice. People can follow my journey through my Instagram profile, which is what I update most.
