Mar C (La Santanera Resident) Marcela’s musical interest started an early age while growing up in Monterrey, Mexico. Her early years were filled with weekend record shopping and attending many live concert events. Countless years were spent collecting an eclectic music collection of varied genres, but she always tended to gravitate towards electronic sounds. It was in her move to Playa Del Carmen, in 2004, that Marcela started to take her music in the direction of becoming a dj. She was spoiled with the sounds of many International DJ’s playing in the Riviera Maya and it was soon after that, she joined the legendary DJ crew at La Santanera. Mar C quickly became a town favorite, sharing the decks with world renowned dj’s like Damian Lazarus, Tiefschwarz, Audiofly, Marco Carola and many more.
Marcela’s a versatile DJ, spending her nights playing on La Santanera’s terraza to an eager crowd wanting some deep house and the next night you can find her thumping the downstairs club with a track selection of some of the best house, tech house and techno to be found. Mar C is also a resident at Playa Del Carmen’s chic beach club, CANIBAL ROYAL, where her early influence of eclectic world sounds can be heard and thoroughly enjoyed. She is now in her 4th year of playing the world-renowned BPM Festival and has also performed the duties of coordinator for many of La Santanera’s in-house events and has welcomed dj’s to The Riviera Maya for festivals such as Day Zero. In 2012, Marcela was asked to play the infamous underground Kater Holzig in Berlin for the Footloose party Tacos and Techno.
You can always be assured that listening to a set of Mar C ‘s music will make you move and leave you wanting more.
