• Strictly Social » First Friday August 4th @ larue ELM •

If you enjoy Downtown Greensboro’s First Fridays, the festivities now continue into the nightlife!
Larue ELM is staging Greensboro’s First Friday afterparty. Strictly Social is a presentation of Underground Dance music that is simply off the spectrum.

It’s been a long time, We shouldn’t have left you..

Without a strong beat to step to. Think of how many weak shows you slept through. Time’s up, I’m sorry we kept you. Thinking of this, you keep repeating, you miss the beats from the turntable soloist. So you sit by the radio, hand on the dial, soon as you hear it, pump up the volume!! Dance with the speaker ’till you hear it blow. Then plug in the headphone cause here it go. It’s a 4 letter word when it’s heard, it controls your body to dance.

You got it, SOUL.

Marshall Jones started out in the scene in mid 99′. Just like a lot of people who are drawn in by the scene, Marshall was all about dancing and enjoying the nightlife. The more he wanted to dance, the more in depth he became with Electronic Music in general.

His thirst for knowledge grew and that is when he sought out answers through the guidance of Hotwax Harley and the Radiance group. He then began promoting for their North Carolina Triangle premiere Wednesday night event. This then led to the itch that encouraged Marshall to want to play records. Gears shifted for him by moving to Orlando in 2002. He linked up with numerous house groups and explored the Orlando nightlife and became a known element in the house community. In 2004, Marshall was granted an internship with the global known label based out of Chicago, Large Music. 2 years later, Marshall crossed paths with Ian Lee. Through their friendship, they saw that they were on the same path when it came to music. This led to the birth of them creating one of Orlando’s respected duos called Soulidified Music.

In 2008, Marshall moved to Chicago where he took in teachings from some of the best in business. This then led him back to NC to apply everything he learned. Once he linked back up with his long time friend DJ Nugz, they became the powerful force known to many as Sound Cartel. The duo are currently holding down the longest running house music night out of Raleigh’s premiere venue, Mosaic Wine Lounge. They have also reinvented and launched the online radio station entitled DanceGruv Radio which hosts up to 35 DJs from all over the world.

With 17 years of DJing and House Music knowledge under his belt, Marshall has played with world renown artists such as Roy Davis Jr., Julius The Mad Thinker, Demarkus Lewis, Jask, Rich Medina, DJ Mes, DJ Heather, Colette, Oscar P and many more. He is forever dedicated to his team, projects and giving back to the community with the power of music. In his own words he puts it simply, “The thing that I cherish the most out of House Music is that I am not apart of a culture, but more apart of a global movement”.
