Christopher Comstock (born May 19, 1992, better known by his stage name Marshmello, is an EDM music DJ and record producer best-known for hits in The New '10s and The New '20s such as "Alone", "Silence" (with Khalid), "Wolves" (with Selena Gomez), "Friends" and "Happier" (with Bastille). In 2017, his performance at Coachella boosted him onto Forbes' list of the highest-paid DJs.

He started out posting original music and remixes in 2015, gaining attention through the support of musicians such as Skrillex, who would eventually collaborate with him. He began playing his first shows by the end of the year, and started putting out his first commercial releases the next year.

While he's best-known for his groove-oriented, synth and bass-heavy dance music, his music has increasingly incorporated a far wider range of genres ranging from Indie Pop to Melodic Rap to Pop Punk, aided by an ever-increasing selection of collaborators including Halsey, Demi Lovato, blackbear, Megan Thee Stallion, A Day to Remember, CHVRCHES, Juice WRLD and The Jonas Brothers.

His identity as Comstock (who had previously had success as a DJ under the name dotcom) had long been rumoured before being confirmed by Forbes in 2017.
