Born and raised by first generation Seattleites, the Walker twin’s, honed their sound from their families original New Orleans roots, crediting them for their unique musical style of Rock n Roll.

Mariu5 – 11:30pm-1am
Mariu5 first stepped behind the decks and pressed ‘play’ in August of 2009 getting his start doing a Tea-Dance and “Fetish” themed leather-latex underground dance parties. As in the past, so is has been since and into the present with Mariu5 still being a well-known fixture in Seattle’s Fetish, BDSM, and Industrial underground niches.
“I might have my roots in playing Industrial, but I enjoy transcending those roots and breaking out of that ‘box’ whenever the situation calls for it.”
