ABOUT YOU

DJ’ing became an interest at the age of 12, doing local fete and birthday parties for friends – with only one turntable! Aged 14 I built my first twin deck unit and was joined by Ivan Childs as we DJ’ed and were passionate about the music, jazz funk and soul, and by 16 had become keen on mixing records non-stop. At the time names big in the mixing arena were Froggy, Larry Levan and Shep Pettibone. Using fixed speed turntables Mark mastered the art of slowing and speeding up records to match bpm’s by hand control only.

 

By the mid-80’s Mark owned the Grand Groove Productions studio producing compilation dance mix tapes for leading clothes stores and themed pubs. Everything was edited on reel to reel tape decks (before the days of computers!).

 

1986 saw the publication of the first UK based magazine aimed purely at the mixing DJ, entitled, “BPM Chart Mag”. With a subscription of over 200 readers it proved very popular among the DJ fraternity. During this time Mark wrote mix articles each month for the trade publication, DJ & Club Trade International, and appeared regularly in the pages of Blues & Soul magazine and Echoes.

 

Working on the Club circuit around North London and Hertfordshire for more than 4 decades. I worked for Radio Top Shop in Brent Cross, along with several local radio outfits including STAR and Hardcore FM along side DJ Ivan Childs.

 

Mark was an early pioneer of using computers and software to create Acid House tracks and remixing dance classics such as Janet Jackson “When I think of You”. Mix ideas from Mark have been used by other International DJ’s and played on Radio 1’s Essential Selection with Pete Tong.
