Since 2001 Mackswell has been spinning records and bringing people together through music.
Mackswell resides in San Francisco, CA and can be found spinning in Los Angeles, Seattle, New York City and beyond.
Mackswell has shared bills and stages with the likes of Snoop Dogg, Chromeo, DJ Mustard, RL Grime, Erykah Badu, Travis Scott, Mos Def, The Glitch Mob, Talib Kweli and more.
As a private and corporate events DJ, Mackswell has been travelled nationwide and even overseas to provide musical entertainment for companies such as Uber, the NFL, RedBull, Absolut Vodka, Yahoo!, Google, Spotify and more.
Music truly is the universal language, and nothing brings Mackswell greater joy than sharing his appreciation for rhythm, song, and dance through DJing.
"Growing up in the Bay when 2pac, Biggie, and Big Pun ruled radio waves, Mackswell knew from a young age that he wanted to make a career out of anything that had to do with music. Collecting cassettes and CDs before the MP3 era, he would habitually memorize and recite lyrics to his favorite songs.
'As a lanky Jewish kid I knew that rapping probably wasn’t my lane into the game,' he laughs. However, enlightenment came in the form of attending a Beastie Boys concert one night and seeing DJ Mix Master Mike perform a solo. From that point on, he knew DJing would be the way he could get involved with the music he loved. "
