Active DJ Entertainment came highly recommended and Martin exceeded our expectations for our big day! The music was awesome and the dance floor stayed packed all night!

    Crushed it!

    Our DJ, Mike Newkirk, from Active DJ Entertainment did a great job! Our guests didn’t stop dancing, which was exactly what we wanted. Very professional, good communication, & read the crowd well! Would definitely recommend for any wedding/event.

Martin
Martin
Owner

Martin began DJing while in school at UNCW, where he earned a degree in English and went on to hold long-term residencies at some of Wilmington’s busiest nightclubs. Jay, the founder of Active, saw potential, brought Martin on, and after years of working together, developed well-placed trust in Martin to carry on the Active name into the next generation.

As a DJ, Martin loves his craft, and it shows when he is in the mix. He loves being able to seamlessly transition through music quickly, in order to build energy, to touch on multiple genres and decades, and to ultimately keep a crowd excited and moving on the dance floor.

Martin and his wife fell in love with Wilmington while in school here, and think it’s the perfect place to raise their daughter and build their life together. In his spare time, he enjoys exploring new places and listening to his ever-growing vinyl collection.
