Brazilian Music Festivals are the roots of DJ Marjo Lak's career, inspired by the collective celebration that is DANCE. At the forefront of the Brazilian Electronic Music Scene since 2001, Marjo sharpened her skills in organizing, promoting, producing, and playing parties. In 2005, she and fellow Brazilian djs (all friends) coined their tech-house music collective, "Butter Music Brazil," and became one of the leading underground party scenes in the country.
Marjo's passion is the slippery sounds of buttery bass lines that inspire entire dance floors; a musical lubricant that whips bodies into rhythmic movements. Her eclectic soundscapes range from Tech-house, Electro Swing, Brazilian Pop, World, Soul, Funk, Dub to disco, and jazz. She can soothe a chill room with soft and creamy downtempo beats, or make the dance floor sizzle with the energetic, greasy textures of tech-house influenced by deep house.
Currently residing behind the Redwood Curtain of California’s North Coast, Marjo can often be spotted spreading her buttery beats on dancefloors throughout Humboldt County. In 2013, Marjo initiated SUMMERTRONICA, the first all-electronic music tent, at the 30+ year Summer Arts & Music Festival in Benbow, CA. In 2015, she was embraced as a member of the long-standing, local dj collective Deep Groove Society.
Marjo's musical journey has since taken her to some of the biggest music festivals around the world, including: Samsara Festival (2005, Minas Gerais, Brazil); Soulclipse (2006, Pipa/Rio Grande do Norte, Brazil); Universo Paralello (2006, 2008 - 2010, Bahia, Brazil); Tranceformation Carnaval Festival (Pirinopolis, Brazil); Psycholand (Brasilia, Brazil); Cultura Lounge (Brasilia, Brazil); Oca da Tribo's Lounge (Brasilia, Brazil); Fosfobox (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil); Criolina (Brasilia, Brazil); Pink & Orange (Goa, India); Night Market (Goa, India); Sonica Festival (2007, Italy); Eudaemonia 2 Year Anniversary (Brooklyn, NY); Moomia Bar & Lounge (NYC); Symbiosis Festival (2007 Northern California); Entheocentric Salon with Alex Grey (Temple, SF, California); Trancendental Bliss (Sacramento, California 2015), Summer Arst Fair (2013, 2014, 2015), Fall Splendor (2010 – 2015), Trinity Jamboree (2015), Northern Nights Music Festival (California 2015)....
