Claude Di Martian - Int'l DJ & MC

Arguably the most sort after Afrobeats DJ in the DMV area and certainly one the finest and dynamic MCs to ever touch the microphone, Calude is one of kind. Claude “Di Martian” is the ultimate music lover; his francophone background allows him to have an understanding in both the French and English Afro-Caribbean culture. As a child he loved to dance and wanted to always be in the midst of musical events. Claude is currently a well-respected DJ in the Washington DC metropolitan area; his versatility has allowed him to share his talent in various circles: American, African, Caribbean, European, and Latin. His knowledge and love for music has not been the only reason he has quickly become a force to be reckoned with; his presence on the microphone has given a new meaning to crowd control. He is one of the leading faces in a prominent group known as Tagsoundz. Dubbed as the “International Party Kingpins” DJs of Tagsoundz are pushing the envelope when it comes to the promotion of the Afro-Caribbean culture through music and radio programing. They pride themselves on truly giving people an enjoyable experience with every performance.
