Marcello Bentine was born in the early 70s with Brazilian roots and Brazilian music in his blood. Raised between Miami and Rio de Janeiro, the Brazilian records his family regularly played at home were the soundtrack to his childhood. He began spinning those same records at underground parties and clubs in Miami and Rio in the late 90s. Since then he has become an avid vinyl collector of Brazilian music, along with other various “world music” genres. Over the years Marcello has thrown several “Classic Brazilian” inspired parties around the world, with such DJs/producers as Marcelinho Da Lua/Mustafa do Brasil (Rio de Janeiro), Sunlightsquare (London), Nickodemus/Greg Caz (NYC), and DJ Le Spam/Mr. Brown (Miami). In 2015 Marcello relocated to Washington DC and has been a regular selector for Ritmos Raros, DC’s all vinyl tropical dance party lead by Sir Ramases.
