False Witness

Represented Worldwide

Arising from Brooklyn’s underground, Marco Gomez aka False Witness has been brewing a globally minded, aggressive approach to Techno and DJing. Marco first made contact through the art scene: they are a founding member of the KUNQ collective, created a conceptual mix for DIS Magazine, and made contributions to the 2013 Venice Biennale and 2014 Frieze Projects in London. Since then, they’ve shared the stage with acts like SHYBOI, Hector Oaks, SPFDJ, MCMLXXXV, CEM, Tzusing, Hodge, Remco Beekwilder & Juliana Huxtable. In addition to their solo production work, they are also one half of FALSEBOI, alongside SHYBOI.

Before they left NYC in 2019 for a brief stint to study in Los Angeles, Marco helmed their own event “In The Dark” at underground destinations like Bossa Nova Civic Club and Mood Ring. There, they focused on bringing artists from across disciplines and mediums to the DJ booth. These parties brought people from all walks of life, and quickly became a monthly favorite amongst dedicated club goers and queer artists.

False Witness has made notable contributions to the musical landscape with EPs for labels like E-Missions, GHE20G0TH1K, and singles for compilations like Discwoman & Allergy Season’s Physically Sick 2 and Gays Hate Techno Vol. 2. Over the years, they have toured all over North America, Europe, Asia, and Australia with major headlining slots: Herrensauna at Tresor Berlin, Hyperreality Festival in Vienna, SXSW in Austin, Texas and Warm Up at MoMA PS1 in New York City.

They hold a MFA from the Milton Avery Graduate School of the Arts, Bard College and is currently based in Berlin.
