Bio

Working as a DJ since 1983 in Manchester, England. Post-Punk, Pre-Nirvana, Post-Disco, Pre-House, Little Martin has ridden many waves and trends and created a few. Credited by ID Magazine (UK) as one of only three DJs in the UK regularly playing House in early 1987, Little Martin was a pioneer in the UK scene that still influences Dance Music the world over. Resident at the world renowned Hacienda nightclub from 1985-1988, the Friday Night "Nude Night" in partnership with DJ Mike Pickering was the epicenter of the Acid House explosion and the birthplace of the world-wide youth phenomenon “Rave”. This weekly event influenced scores of musicians, DJs and producers, including the Pet Shop Boys, New Order & Sasha to name a few. After relocating to the U.S., Little Martin continued on with several successful residences in Vermont before settling in Houston.  Specializing in House & Dance music, his diverse programming will often combine many different genres.  With 32 years experience and a massive musical knowledge he instinctively knows how to work and entertain a crowd.  You will likely hear more than the same beat all night long with DJ Little Martin!
