Born and raised in Venezuela, Mari.te is one of NYC’s fresh talents on the rise. With a father who is an avid classical music collector, Mari.te was exposed to music since the day she was born. After years of playing piano and guitar, she found her home in electronic music as she grew up, developing her music taste during her college years while living between Boston and NYC. She then moved back to Venezuela for five years, where she earned her place as one of the country’s top-tier DJs, playing regularly at the most prominent clubs and festivals. Since mid 2015, Marite quickly found her underground home in NYC, taking her signature deep and minimal house sets to some of the most renowned nightclubs and parties in the city such as ReSolute, Output, Schimanski, Sheik ’N Beik, Bushwick A/V, TBA Brooklyn, and The Good Room. She also co-founded Off The Record NY in the summer of 2016, a monthly party that takes place in different venues across Brooklyn and Manhattan. Earlier this year, Mixmag featured Mari.te in their “20 Artists To Know Who Are Rising From The Underground,” where they stated that “she possesses the expert skill and knowledge to work a dancefloor and her blend of techy, minimal house is ideal for the late nights and early mornings of the city’s warehouse raves.” Fresh from recently finishing her Music Business Master’s degree at NYU, and working behind the scenes for ReSolute, her involvement in the music industry is a full-time commitment. New York is now in Marite’s veins, entirely visible in her sets in which she combines a taste of Brooklyn’s roots with her feminine style. Whether you are at home listening to her carefully curated sets or at the peak hour in her parties, you’re guaranteed to go on a unique journey guided by Marite’s eclectic taste and vision.
