DJ Stripe (a.k.a. Martin Acosta) has been in the Vancouver music scene for 10 years as a Live Musician/Vocalist/Multi-Instrumentalist, playing well over 1,000 gigs in both lounges, as well as private functions. Five years ago he was asked if he could also DJ a wedding he was performing at, and that’s when “DJ Stripe” arrived. Since then, he has worked a multitude of events and flown all over the country for gigs for clients like: WestJet, Ford, Four Seasons Hotels, Mosaic Homes, and many more.
His experience reading rooms combined with his versatility is what allows him to adapt to many different crowds and styles. Although primarily an event DJ/Musician, the lounges/residencies are what keep him sharp, and allow him the opportunity to get more creative with sounds, samples, loops & effects. Hypnotic grooves are his signature sound, so don’t be surprised if you find suddenly find yourself tapping your feet or even dancing.
