Marathon DJs

Great DJs and music is the most important of every event

DJ timetable - who's behind the decks right now ?

DJ Viking

Norway
Petter has his background in music from an early age, playing multiple instruments and dedicating around 10 years to playing in bands and creating music. In the beginning of 2013, Petter started with Brazilian Zouk and a new passion exploded inside him. Through the years, until today, Petter has been a very active, hardworking zouk enthusiast helping to build the Zouk Oslo Norway scene, and traveling around the world, multiple times, to learn more about zouk. His passion has grown alot, and Petter has been a regular dancer and DJ to see/meet around in Europe's zouk scene. The most importent to him, is "to feel the dance and to feel the music". He focuses on a great variety of music during his DJ sets, and mostly original songs without to much crazy effects and added beats. As a DJ, he wants to bring everyone on a journey through the language of zouk and music, and bring the dancers closer to each other. He always try to create a magical atmosphere, and represent every style, mixed in with both new and old styles of zouk music. As a dancer, he focuses on clear leading, bringing trust and comfort to his partner, and enjoying together the music with flow, dynamique and musicality. Being connected through the pillars of the zouk dance language is always his favourite thing to do. DJing has been a natural evolution from being a experienced musician, and no matter if Petter teach, dance, DJ he always says he want to contribute to an unique and special energy, that only zoukers can create together. Petter loves the Prague Zouk Marathons and love being apart of the events every season, every year. Lets enjoy together soon. Zouk and love, from DJ Viking.

DJ Hush Z

Poland

For HUSHZ being a DJ is basically something he arrived at after patiently building this craft from many elements.

His will to live is driven by musical phrases which helped him with his main occupation as a classical music double bass player or obtaining musical degree. Obviously, that was not enough, so he also explored territories of composing and producing music from scratch using both physical instruments as well as digital modelling. On that field he also released two albums of zouk remixes and one album including tracks he composed and produced completely on his own.

Breathing music for most of his life made him fall in love with a wide variety of different genres. Years of listening, studying and making music gave him a deep understanding of emotional messages stated in songs which he appreciates very deeply to share with dancers he plays for.

Hundreds of performances he gave as a DJ and professional musician helped him develop the ability to read the audience at practically an instinctive level. It also taught him unquestionable professionalism and dedication. He never finds any issues with adapting to events he performs at, from cosy small meetings to full blown zouk congresses.

Also, as an active member of the zouk community he enjoys any non-musical contact with potential audiences greatly. This is mainly because he feels constant gratitude for having a chance to share music he loves with others.

DJ Kron

Czechia

My whole life is connected with music, not only by playing instrument since my childhood but I always loved listening all sort of music and collecting it. And somehow it happends that I was given the opportunity to use my joy and taste of music to make people on the dancefloor happy. I am trying to learn something new on every event, adapt the music and mood I am playing to the dancers of different communities and countries.

I am playing mostly on events in Brno, my hometown and I am also heading to play to Poland, Romania, Croatia and Prague and others. If I should speak about my prefered style and mood of music, it would be beatless songs, chill and soft. So my favourite time of playing is in the morning or whenever the mood is more relaxed and smooth and cosy. I try to feel the people on the dance floor and provide them fluent energy and satisfy their current dancing mood. I also try to challenge their musicality by expressing music that is not so usual and traditional zouk music.

  • "This event is very special. What I like about the Prague marathons compared to others is the amazing combination of passionate dancers dancing to music played by passionate, experienced DJ's in a very quaint and comfortable venue, serving up very tasty buffet style meals and loads of snacks in between. I love how the snacks and meals are integrated completely with dancing area. The dancing is seemingly non-stop, starting from noon lunch/brunch until 6 AM in the morning. And perhaps the best is the general atmosphere of being relaxed and unpretentious, attended by friendly passionate dancers. Why I would recomend this event to my friends? Because it is a great way to dance a lot to really good music, to chill out with friends, and to get to know passionate salsa people much more closely than would be possible at larger, more formal salsa events."

Our Venues

Romantic Grotta

Havlíčkovy Sady, 12000 Prague 2, Czechia

The Grotta is the main attraction of the Havlicek Gardens and looks like a fairytale with its peculiar rock formations. The artificial cave looks unusual on the building and features the arcade promenade which is quite unique in Prague. The Grotta dates back to 1871 to 1888 when it was intricately built by Moritz Grobe, a millionaire. After renovation in 2011, the cave was opened for public.
