Denite is a Berlin based dj and producer originally hailing from Spain, who has released on label such as Dyinamic, Noir Music, Third Ear Recording and more. He is also running the upcoming house/ tech house label Redlight Music, that is about to release Denite’s debut long player “Everything I Know And I Will Never Know About you”. He used to live in Greece where he was running parties with Franz Scala and Local Suicide‘s Vamparela, so we have the luck to have met this highly gifted guy way back. We love him and his music and after reading this and listening to his tunes you will too!
My name is Gari Marcos but you might know me as Denite. I was born in Elche, a small city near Alicante in Spain and grew up in this beautiful city full of palmtrees.. When I was a child my idol was my mom, because she was the best mother in the world.. When I was 12 years old, I started playing guitar. It was then when I realised that I wanted to do something with music in my life and decided to get together with some friends and start a band. Since then I been always involved in music project like my label or my career as music producer.
One of the best gigs I played was the first time I played in New York city presenting my live set in 2012. It was so much fun – even I had a little bit of jet lag and I had the chance to meet really nice people there which still are my friends now.
One of the best gigs I have been to was Jimmy Eat World at the Bizarre Festival in Germany 1998. I loved the whole vibe of it and the fact that they started the concert with the best 2 tracks!
Now I live in Berlin with my girlfriend and my 2 cats. In my house you can find vinyls to listen to and my refrigerator is usually full with a lot of stuff to cook with. I enjoy cooking and play basketball a lot. I can spend hours getting ready a tasty dinner with friends, I really enjoy it. One of my favorite places to visit is Asia, because I was never there and I’m really looking forward to visit it.
On weekdays I work as a booker in a Booking & Publicity agency here in Berlin and on weekends I usually enjoy the time with friends and travel abroad from time to time.
My favorite song at the moment is ‘Tearing Me Up’ from Bob Moses. A film I watched lately and really liked was Chef. The last series I watched and loved was Fargo.
I am very inspired by everything which has to do with art and culture. My dream is to enjoy every single day as it was the last one. My worst nightmare is to be inactive.
I love to be an active person and full my day with lots of stuff and hate when somehow my mood is going down for no reason and it’s hard to complete the day.
I am addicted to ‘Cruspies’, a peanut and paprika snack, I just cannot stop eating them when I open a bag.
I get totally fucked up, when I drink more than I should. The next day I need to have a day off to recover.
Local Suicide reminds me of a friendship with 2 good mates.
Tomorrow I keep on chasing my dreams. Next month I’m releasing my debut album “Everything I Know And I Will Never Know About you’ on my own label Redlight Music.. Next year I wish it will be much better than this one, and like this every year of my life. In 10 years I hope I can look back and feel proud of the decisions I took. Thinking “what an amazing 10 years of my life…”.
If I wasn’t a musician / Dj / Producer, I would be a graphic and media designer.
If my life was a Hollywood movie, I would never have the main role, because I don’t feel very comfortable with the “camera action” surrounding the artist life. If I could have sex with anyone, it would be nice, but I actually have a girlfriend.
If I was a car, I would be a Transformer for sure. But one from the old ones that I used to see in comics when I was 8. If I was an animal, I would be a feline for sure. If I was a drug I would be thinking which club to go tonight. If I was an invention, I would be a new, clean and unique source of energy that you could find anywhere in the world. If I was an object, I would be a tired of being there standing or laying every single day. If I could date myself, I would definitely prefer to be a girl.
If I could play with anyone it would be with Booka Shade on their “Movements” tour. I would like to collaborate with Foo Fighters anytime for an Edit or Remix.
If I had only one wish, it would be to accomplish every target I wish to reach in my life.
I would never quit music, because you can never give up a passion. Is something you were born with.
My word of advice to the reader would be to listen to my debut album “Everything I Know And I Will Never Know About you” coming out 27th May on Redlight Music.
