DJ NEWMARK: THE LEGENDARY THROWBACK KING
DJ Newmark (born Edward Alexander Jr - 17 June 1971) is an American DJ, Radio Personality and Hip-Hop Music Producer. adopting his name in tribute to the name brand of his first set of DJ turntables that he owned (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 regional musical styles with him as he learned to blend them to fit the local scene to wherever he was at.
