Martin Arredondo is one of those singular "work-hard-play-hard" types, who's never been known to shy away from a good challenge. Since his early days growing up on Chicago's Little Village (aka "La Villita"), Martin has been known for his ability to dream big, and get things done. To quote our favorite Better Call Saul, Martin's got what we like to call a "stick-to-it-ive-ness" that is simply contagious.
Martin picked up a love for house music as a teen, and saved up for his first DJ setup while still in high school. He began tirelessly combing crates to build his signature collection of hip hop, rock, electro house, funk and Latin music. Martin managed to maintain an active DJ practice, erstwhile earning a BA in Finance and Engineering Minor at the University Of Illinois. His ambition and hard work earned him a job at the prestigious Deloitte accounting firm, where he has paved the beginnings of a promising finance career.
Martin is now turning his focus back to his musical roots, and building his reputation as a top shelf private events DJ, working numerous private and nightlife events around the clock, including residencies at the Electric Hotel Night Club & Hubbard Inn. (Literally: don't be surprised if you catch him closing out a raging club set at 6AM, or providing the soundtrack for an elegant corporate cocktail party. He does it all!) This veritable Man-About-Town would love to be a part of your next big event.
Bonus: For some extra-credit reading on Martin, here's a little Q&A he did with us re: How To Plan Your Multicultural Wedding.

Green Line Talent was great, and easy to work with! We live in TX so had to plan for our Chicago wedding from a distance, but felt confident with our decision to go with GLT from the start. They have a great platform where you can learn a little bit about each of their DJs - their styles, inspirations, etc. - and we chose to go with Martin. We were easily able to chat with Martin leading up to the big day, and they provide a great planning sheet to ensure everyone was on the same page as far as what types of music we wanted to hear. During introductions and dinner, Martin acted as MC to keep everything flowing smoothly, introducing the wedding party and speakers accordingly and once it was time to party, party we did! The dance floor was always crowded, and filled with people of different age groups. Martin read the room and chose songs perfectly! Overall it was an amazingly fun night, and I would highly recommend Martin and the whole GLT team!
