THE LEGENDARY THROWBACK KING: DJ NEWMARK
DJ Newmark (born Edward Alexander Jr - 17 June 1971) adapted his name as a tribute to the first set of DJ turntables that he owned and could afford (brand name Numark). Son of a military serviceman, he was born in Okinawa Japan. As a bi-racial child (Mom is Korean and Dad is Black) Newmark traveled the world as a military dependent.
Originally a B-Boy, he wanted to influence the crowds that would watch him dance in a different way. Witnessing the power that MC's had over a crowd, he knew that being more than a dancer in the background during performances was something he craved. Realizing that his MC's skills were not at a level to "move a crowd", he focused on the alternative which was to perform center stage, as a DJ. Pioneer DJ's like Jam Master Jay, Cut Creator, Grandmaster Dee, Jazzy Jeff, Mix Master ICE, Grandmaster Flash, Kool Herc, Mix Master Mike, Red Alert, Mr. Magic, Afrika Bambaataa, Terminator X, Eric B, DJ Premier, Kid Capri and Marley Marl set the example of what Newmark wanted to do on stage.
While moving to a new city every three years, he was able to DJ to a variety of Hip-Hop crowds across the globe. When living in the U.S. he performed at events from California to New York taking all of the reginal musical styles with him as he learned to blend them to fit the local scene. His first professional DJing opportunity came while in middle school performing at an homecoming event. DJ Newmark’s diversity in music genres keeps his dance floors packed and has been a successful formula for over four decades.
"The Legendary Throwback King" DJ Newmark performances resume spans from over six countries, 30 states and 90 cities and has worked with a countless number of professional athletes, entertainers and independent as well as major label recording artists.
As a music producer, he has been a contributing member of the Association of Songwriters, Composers And Publishers (ASCAP) since 2001.
With over 450 live concert and show performances and over 35K social medical followers, his heart and soul is for the old school Hip-Hop and R&B culture. Newmark has built a name for himself that represents the passion for 80's, 90's & 2000's throwback music while keeping it alive for today’s generation of listeners. You can catch him on air each and every weekend on the DJ NEWMARK EXPERIENCE radio show on Palm Beach, Florida's very own YO!107.1 FM Classic Hip-Hop and R&B or simultaneously on the web @ www.yopalmbeach.com from 3-9pm EST with the "Flavor On Top Of Flavor Mastermix" hour at 6pm.
