Tokyo, Fukuoka & Nagoya

Having travelled to so many different corners of the globe over the course of my career so far, I was absolutely delighted to be able to announce my first ever tour of Japan in late Jan, scheduled for Mar 16-21st. Taking in 3 different cities, I began the tour in Fukuoka; where the crowd were incredible. I’d already been shown around the city during the day, taking in local sights and trying the most incredible food. We visited the restaurant where they filmed the fight scene from Kill Bill, I had the most amazing Ramen I’d ever tasted & tried traditional Japanese whiskey. Coming from living in the desert for nearly 3 years, it was so refreshing to see such a wealth of culture, that no Westerner had come over and tried to change. I was fascinated by everything I saw.

Second city, was Tokyo. Just as I had expected, it was a metropolis. The club was like a scaled down version of a Vegas venue; tables, a multi-level dance floor and a sound system unrivalled even by some of the clubs back in Sin City. This was already set to be one of my favourite trips DJing around the world. We set off the next morning to our final destination, Nagoya, on the bullet train; which since I was a child I had always wanted to ride on. Upon arriving, my host and now good friend Fuwa took me to an authentic Samurai (I’ll call it Ninja) castle. I was in awe the entire time, taking photos left, right and centre like the true tourist I was. Moving on; we closed out the trip with a farewell meal and then on to what became my favourite show of the entire tour. The most reactive crowd, the most organic feeling club environment, it was the perfect way to tie up my time in Japan.

Don’t worry, I’m already organising my return. Arigato!

Was super excited to be able to play my first ever headline at Wet Republic alongside fellow resident and good friend Jeff Retro. Despite it being early season and the weather not being able to make it’s mind up, the vibe was perfect and we charged through our two-hour set dropping some new mashups and solo tracks we’d both been working on. I’m positive this won’t be the last time you see Jeff & I b2b, either at the pool or at the club!

Back to the grindstone, my first headline at Hakkasan for the year came at the end of our NYE weekend proceedings. This first Sunday of the New Year has become a bit of a staple for me, having played it the previous 2 years as well. This time I brought along a 30-strong entourage to enjoy the night with me, as well as my good friend Bryan Robinson to MC while I smashed out the tracks.

You can check out the photo gallery right here.

Next headline show for me is on UFC 197 weekend, Sunday March 6th. See you there, complete with a live performance of my new single with BRKLYN.

Back home to England for Christmas it was – and therefore it was by far time I got the chance to spin in my homeland once more. Originally I come from a small countryside town in the South-West of England, called Swindon. Clubs in Swindon are sparse and quite frankly – not the greatest. I’ve played at a handful of our venues, only one of which still remains to this day, so instead of playing there this Christmas like last year, I decided to test out London.

Having played Ministry of Sound many times, it was time for me to experience something a bit different. Drama, Park Lane. Located inside the Hilton, it’s a smaller venue but full of mirrors and themed almost like a Vegas club, so I instantly felt at home. Crowd was full of beautiful faces and fashionable London folk; as well as a small crew of my close friends who decided that they were going to bring Vegas to the club that night. I can’t wait to come back again in April for more of the same! See you then, London town…

“Let In The Light” – OUT NOW!

After the huge success of Mark’s first single “Breathe On My Own” with singer/songwriter Audrey Gallagher (Hold On To Me, Big Sky, Bring Back The Sun, Worlds Apart), it was by far and away time for a follow up. This time, enlisting more of a progressive house rolling bassline and festival destroying kick; the track fires into the breakdown taking no prisoners.

It’s at this point that the heavenly vocals of Audrey once more take over, with a backdrop of pianos and a simple but effective chord progression. The riff is almost Dzeko & Torres-esque, building into an enormous crescendo before thundering back in for what is set to be a feature in everyone from progressive to trance DJs’ playlists for months to come.

Grab the track from Beatport, or listen to it in the Music section.
