Marcel Calpito (born June 24th, 1982), known by his stage name DJ FREEFLY, is a Canadian DJ, Producer & Vocalist. Renowned for taking his listeners through dynamic, sophisticated & uplifting musical journeys, DJ FREEFLY continues to chronicle his experience of the evolution of sound, crafting elegant and seamless soundscapes for every mood, emotion and setting. Based out of Montreal, Canada, he is the owner and founder of Love Hertz Entertainment, and Head Resident DJ for 1909 Taverne Moderne.
Heavily influenced by urban music growing up in the 80’s and 90’s, singing and dancing became a natural hobby for Marcel, as was his insatiable need to collect music. After many years of curating mixtapes on every medium, from cassette tapes, to burned CDs, to software mixes, DJ FREEFLY finally debuted professionally in 2007. Starting out with local night clubs, over the years, he developed further experience DJing for supper clubs, restaurants and weddings, as well as for private and corporate events—all the while, cultivating his signature sound though the release of his many top charting mixtapes on Mixcloud. His notable releases include the “Depth Perception”, “Set It Off For The Summer” and “Legends” series. This breadth of experience and attention to detail allowed him to understand and appreciate the diverse musical tastes of people from all generations, and for any and every occasion. In October 2017, he was offered the opportunity of a lifetime to be the Head Resident DJ of the Montreal Canadiens’ own premier sports bar, 1909 Taverne Moderne, and his company, Love Hertz Entertainment, was tasked for staffing the DJs in both locations (MTL & LVL).
Whether it’s rocking out during a pre-game, trapping out on fight night, keeping the groove bouncing during happy hour, or laying down smooth and sultry vibes for intimate moments, DJ FREEFLY understands exactly what to play, when to play, and how to play it. His aim is to make every human experience richer and more harmonious through music, and to bring more joy and happiness into people’s lives by playing the songs they love.
