"DJ1SRAEL" (Israel Marcano)

Underground + Deep + Soulful + House + Techno + Chill + Dub | U.S.A.

Israel's experience dates back to the mid-eighties when as a teenager living on an army base in El Paso, Texas his exposure to various styles of early electronic music, break dancing and hip-hop culture inspired him to become a DJ/producer.

A collection of mix tapes from various radio shows by legendary DJ's such as Red Alert (NYC)Jeff Mills (DET) and Julian "Jumpin" Perez (CHI) were instrumental in helping Israel to develop a style of playing based on diverse track selection and a smooth, creative blend of sounds across many musical influences & genres.

In the early nineties Israel organized, promoted and performed at some of El Paso's very first underground "Rave" events. He's held residencies at many venues over the years including "Club 101", "O.P. After Hours" and the legendary "S.O.A.", later known as "Minc" in Dallas, Texas.
