Marcus (aka "DJ Hype") is an energetic and outgoing DJ with a fun personality. Marcus likes to interact with guests and "come out from behind the DJ equipment and hit the dance floor to encourage the guests to dance." Marcus is Astro's 2012 Astro "DJ of the Year." He is also one of Astro's most popular Mitzvah hosts, and he's very fond of teaching line dances. Marcus is also musically inclined, prior to joining Astro, he spent six years as a one-man band playing drums (paint cans) on the side streets in New York City. His goal when DJ'ing is to "ensure the guests are having just as much fun as I am. I want to see everyone smiling, fist-pumping, and making the dance floor vibrate. Anything less, I didn’t get the job done."

Marcus, Thank you for making our day one fantastic, hyped up party! Everything ran so smooth! I have heard nothing but great comments on the music selection/DJ; everyone had such a great time. The music and lighting, it was all amazing!! Thank you.

I had my wedding last night and we had DJ Hype (Marcus Matthews) for it. He was fantastic, one of the best I've seen. Him and the entire company are professional and listen to what you want. I would recommend them any day. Thank you for the awesome job.

DJ HYPE/Marcus Matthews was our DJ last Saturday at New Kent Winery. The hurricane wind and non-stop rain did not stop him from doing what he loves to do. I cannot express the complete positive experience Marcus made, even in the midst of Hurricane Matthew. Marcus made my daughter and son-in-law's reception night the BEST it could ever be. My daughter envisioned the venue being outside; New Kent winery suggested moving it inside. The tent was supposed to be open and beautiful, well the wind and rain were so hard, and we had to close the plastic sides.... Marcus shows up to DJ with such great personality, included the bridal party in dancing, and followed every single wish my kids requested with the happiest personality. Our dance floor was packed up until the very last song....during a Hurricane. Marcus truly saved our disastrous day. ... THANK YOU Marcus for being the BEST of the BEST. Our best friends WILL look you up for next summer and I will encourage others to do the same.

Thank you so much for being there for my daughter Britt and Seth’s big day. Tammy & Brian Bland insisted on you from the jump street and referred to you as “Family”…..what a “Great DJ” and a “Great Person”. Thank you bro for helping make my little girl’s day a dream come true.
