Hailing originally from London, MC Questionmark is one of the most recognized voices to be found across the landscape of the North American drum and bass scene.
Born and raised in Southeast London, Questionmark, (aka Devon Andrew Morgan), moved to Los Angeles, California in 1987; encouraged by his parents to attend college stateside. Once settled in LA, Questionmark completed a degree in business administration at the LA Trade Tech College and Cal State University LA.
Growing up immersed in the acid house and techno scene that was blossoming in the UK in the early 90s, his time was split between the two countries. Influenced heavily by his Jamaican roots, he was drawn to deep reggae sounds like the Coxson Sound System (which Soul II Soul emerged from); and international rare grooves, soul and jazz. Attending his first Sunday Roast at its original location in Linford Studios, Questiomark was exposed to jungle through emerging heavy hitters like Fabio, Grooverider, Jumping Jack Frost, and DJ Ron. After hearing MC Moose, he was immediately drawn to drum and bass and the medium of emceeing.
Slowly finding his affinity for DnB, Questionmark connected to the early LA jungle scene through artists like R.A.W., who were playing the type of sound that he was craving. But there was no emcee. Hoping to bring a taste of London back to the U.S., he offered his services and never looked back. He became resident emcee at the first West Coast DnB weekly night “Science” (started by enthusiast/publisher of URB Magazine Raymond Roker), and hosted another “Atmospheric” night at the Viper Room. Over the years he had the opportunity to emcee many great events with pivotal artists in the genre like Krust, Dynamite MC, Doc Scott, Bryan Gee, Jumping Jack Frost, J Magick and LTJ Bukem. He grew his name and style over the next two decades, playing cities across the states like Honolulu, San Francisco, Seattle, Chicago, St. Louis, Minneapolis, Detroit, New York, Miami, Atlanta, Vancouver, BC., San Juan Puerto Rico, and many more.
Honing his craft and feeling a great response from the crowds, Questionmark has gone on to emcee (both locally and internationally) for huge influencers of the industry like Roni Size/Reprazent, Andy C, Ed Rush, Fierce, Nico, Trace, Bailey, Ink, John B, Bad Company, A Guy Called Gerald, DJ Rap, Jumping Jack Frost, Bryan Gee, Dom and Roland, Doc Scott, Simon "Bassline" Smith at the Planet V parties for V Recordings. Staying relevant to the stateside scene, Questionmark has tracked down some of the best shows, emceeing for domestic talent such as DJ Craze, Dieselboy, Dara, DB, AK1200, UFO!, Sage, Hive, Phantom 45, Fury, Danny the Wildchild…the list goes on. His passion for the music and soul behind DnB has led this journey.
Says Questionmark, “I want to take this music to the masses. Drum and bass is one of the first genres that came from the streets of London, intertwined with roots from Caribbean sounds mixed with the England vibe. I have always wanted to represent these underground sounds….I want people all over to know that even the ghetto has an artistic impact worldwide."
Based now in Portland, Oregon, and working on a variety of creative pursuits and music projects, you can catch Questionmark all over the states, as a resident emcee of JUICE Drum and Bass, or pond-hopping to the UK at
