For a long time Mark has been passionately exploring music. From his early teens on he was actively involved in underground hardcore punk where he played in several bands like Cathode and How the Gods Kill. After years of organizing punk rock shows, doing bookings and tours and playing in about every filthy hole and weird place you can imagine he ended up at a house party somewhere in the Brazilian jungle. An eye-opening moment that made him realize there was much more in life than just angry music.
From then on he started to explore the infinite world of musical differences, this time with an open mind.
Mark's musical endeavors took him decades back in time, finding essential music dating back as far as half a century – music that proved to be timeless in spirit and soul. The importance of collecting the history of music that makes house music what it is today is enhanced by his love for vinyl. Though not dismissive of newer technologies Mark wants to feel his way through music by tracing all the connections to and variations of psychedelic rock, afro, funk, soul-freejazz, punk, wave, disco, house, electro and techno to the deeper shades of modern house music. Slabs of vinyl are his ultimate mediator.(N.N.).
He also actualy play in the live group Volition Immanent with Parish Smith
