Mark G – Base DJ Events

Welcome to my bio, I am the owner and main DJ at Base DJ Events. I have been DJ’ing since the early 90’s and have played at various different night clubs and bars at home and abroad, pretty much any type of function you can imagine.

I have learnt a lot along the way, and I am lucky enough to have experience in playing all genres of music in a variety of different venues. I made the decision to start a mobile DJ business a few years ago and haven’t looked back since, I now predominantly DJ at weddings, parties and corporate events.

Since forming Base DJ Events I have invested in a full state of the art mobile DJ set up, including a computer controlled  LED lighting rig, up lighters, a tasteful modern DJ booth and sound system. I provide a variety of different options for my clients depending on the type of venue and their preference, and my system is suitable for any size event.

I like most genres of music and I am more than happy to DJ to a playlist, this can be compiled before any event by yourself, with or without my input. I have over 50,000 tracks to choose from and have played them all at some point, from 60’s to present day, including indie, pop, rnb, hip hop, dance, soul, house, garage, rock and reggae, all of which I bring with me to every gig.

Mobile DJ

Having fun at a Birthday party!

Over the years I’ve learnt how to read a crowd, and will always try to keep the dance floor full and moving with whatever works on the night. Having DJ’d in clubs as well as at private functions, I am not your typical cheesy mobile DJ, all my equipment is up to date along with my music collection, and I promise there will not be any unnecessary chatting on the mic, I will just play good music for you and your guests to enjoy. I’ve found that more and more people are now looking for something different for their special occasion and are tired of the traditional ‘old school’ mobile disco. That’s why I try to make each event I do special and unique, listening to what my clients want and advising them on what would best suite their needs, and with recent advances in lighting and sound, the possibilities are endless.

A bit about me

DJ Mark G

Outdoor event in Hertfordshire

I grew up in the 80’s in St Albans, Hertfordshire, and have loved music since an early age. I was heavily into soul, rnb, hip hop and dance music growing up, and was fascinated with DJ’ing. I remember watching the World DMCs as a youngster on an old VHS tape, hoping to one day be a world champion DJ!  So as soon as I could afford it I went out and purchased my first pair of Technics turntables and a mixer and never looked back. Sadly I never a became a DMC world champion, but I did practice a lot and mastered the art and have developed a professional mixing style (including scratching, effects and tricks) Things have moved on a lot since then, and so have I, although I still have some vinyl, like most modern DJs my record crate is now on my laptop, which is great because I no longer have to carry around heavy record boxes! and I have a lot more tracks at my disposal on the night. I’m glad I grew up and started DJ’ing in the era I did, otherwise I would of missed out on some great music and memories.
