If you're a regular in NYC at any of the hottest clubs around, chances are you're well aware of who DJ Mark LaRush is. Having taken his skills to the stage a few years ago at many popular clubs, including (but so not limited to...) DeVille, Boucarou, Tonic, and the Belmont Lounge, LaRush has earned himself the spot of resident DJ at hot spots like Le Souk, China One, Falucka, and Flute.
Mark developed a love for music at an early age, and by the time he was 14, began making his own music. By taking different beats and mixing them together into one awesome track, Brooklyn's LaRush proved his talent to his family and his friends-- and the New York party scene. And now, he's taken his music international.
"New York is International"
"You don't have to leave New York to become international, New York is international." -DJ Mark LaRush
There's no doubt about that. If you can make it in New York, you can make it almost anywhere. Mark recently took his music across the pond to Frankfurt, Germany. For his first performance outside of the U.S., LaRush threw down at a Symposium event in Oestrich-Winkel.
Mark's international success can be accredited to his (you guessed it) pure talent, and international fans. Europeans visiting NYC make it a point to visit one of the venues Mark performs at-- he's that good. With his solid following on Twitter and Facebook, there's no doubt he's just getting started.
The Other Side
Try and track down Mark during the day and guess where you'll probably find him? In a cafe working away on his laptop. But catch him at the club while he's performing? Completely different. When on stage, DJ LaRush thrives off the crowd's enthusiasm and energy. His main priority while up there? To give them a show they won't forget, and walk away with a few (or a lot!) more fans. Check out this clip here, and tell me can you blame them for jumping on the DJ LaRush bandwagon? Because we certainly can't.
