Demarkus Lewis has been heavily submerged in the world of dance music for the past fourteen years. He is currently one of House Musics hardest working artists and is in high demand around the World. Production is the main driving force behind his craft but he will tell you that there is nothing like a good crowd to beat down with great tunes.
As well D.jing, Demarkus finds time to hold down two weekly residencies at Dallas prime time nightspots the Zubar (Fridays) and at The Pharmacy (Saturdays). He also co-founded Grin Music Artist Management with his wife, Kelly and currently work together booking both veteran house djs as well as up and coming favorites. In 2004, stepping up and moving forward seems to hold great rewards for him as he increases his knowledge and love of good music and continues on with many great new releases.
