Marshmello (born 19 May 1992) is the stage name of Christopher Comstock, an American electronic music DJ and producer.
After remixing songs by American DJ duo Jack Ü and Russian-German DJ Zedd, the disc jockey rose to prominence.
Marshmello’s most popular songs, including Silence, Wolves, Friends, Happier, and Alone, have all been certified multi-platinum and have topped the charts.
His Early Life
Marshmello was born on May 19, 1992, in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. He keeps his personal life private from the general public.
As a result, we know very little about his childhood, family, siblings, or life prior to music. Some mistook him for Christian Comstock, a well-known American DJ known as Dotcom. They share a tattoo, and Moe Shaliz is their manager.
Marshmello’s first original mix song, “WaVeZ,” was released on SoundCloud in 2015. That song received a lot of positive feedback, and he received support from other well-known DJs such as Skrillex.
He constantly disguised himself on stage, making it difficult to figure out who he was. Before he was discovered, most people assumed Marshmello was an American DJ named Christian Comstock, also known as Dotcom.
Dotcom’s style is similar to that of Marshmello. In an interview, Skrillex even referred to Marshmello as “Chris.” Marshmello’s debut album Joytime, which contains ten songs, was released in 2016.
His album, Joytime Collective, debuted at number five on the Billboard Hot 100 electronic/dance album charts. In the same year, Marshmello launched his “Ritual Tour,” performing in countries such as the United States, China, Paraguay, India, and South Korea.
He was a successful businessman, amassing a fortune of US$21 million in less than a year. Marshmello is currently one of the world’s highest-paid DJs.
The majority of people were interested in Marshmello’s true identity, which was revealed by Forbes when Christopher Comstock, also known as DJ Dotcom, was revealed to be Marshmello’s true identity.
