Trax Appeal w/ Marquis Hawkes (DE)

We’re back for another night of unadulterated club music. First up is Marquis Hawkes. This mysterious DJ from Berlin is clear about the music he’s bringing. A bit ghetto, a bit jackin, all raw and brusque house music. His releases on Dixon Avenue Basement Jams and Clone are testament to that. Our second guest is Marsman. The Pinkman label boss is a staple in the Rotterdam scene and always knows how to bring the party.
