It’s been a long road for Mark. And the modest and unassuming DJ/producer is quick to praise those who have played a part in his success. In fact, as he discusses how his musical career has come about, it appears to be more by accident than design. There’s no overarching ambition or set path to follow; just a basic desire to produce and play the music he has been passionate about since he was a teenager.
Fast-forward a few years though and it’s disco, rather than house, that was responsible for Mark’s big break. In summer 2005 he reshaped Womack & Womack’s “Baby I’m Scared of You” in his now trademark style: slowly but surely layers of the original were looped together in a highly hypnotic fashion until, eventually, the full song was unleashed.
Since then Mark has released on labels such as Sonar Kollektiv, Golf Channel, Internasjonal & Running Back, consistantly creating and developing his disctinctive sound, eventually culminating in the birth of MERC, marks own label, primarily an outlet for his own productions, Merc has two release under its belt now, with 2010 looking to be another busy year.
He also has a burgeoning club calendar which has seen him play all over the world as well as uk and Europe, with forthcoming tours of Japan and Australia, Mark has visited Brazil, Russia, USA, German, Poland, France playing anything from deep house to dusty disco.
