Marshall Jones started in mid 1999 out of Gotham Nightclub in Chapel Hill, NC during the rave era. Gaining a vast knowledge and skills in the DJ booth, this led to him having an internship with Ovum Records and moving to Orlando to attend college at Full Sail University. During college, he switched from interning with Ovum to Large Music in 2004. He then started hosting and DJing events at some of the major venues around town and making appearances at WMC in Miami. In 2007, Marshall was proposed by the CEO of Large Music to move to Chicago and work directly with him. In this duration of that time, Marshall began learning from legendary Producers and DJs such as Roy Davis Jr., Mark Grant, Andre Harris, Jask, Julius The Mad Thinker and more. In 2009, he moved back to NC and linked up with long time friend DJ Nugz to create Sound Cartel. This led to them hosting and DJing their event Sultry out of the venue called Mosaic in Raleigh, NC. They have hosted many major global DJs and is considered one of the longest running Deep and Soulful House nights in the Triangle. Marshall Jones is currently DJing for such events as Mi Casa Holiday, West Coast Weekender and more. He also is running the internet based radio station entitled DanceGruv Radio, which features 38 DJs from all over the world and has gained much notoriety amongst many in the dance music community. He continues to thrive and push himself and his team to make NC known for a place where House Music lives. In his own words, “The thing I love about House Music is the fact that I am not apart of a scene, but more of a movement.”
