Suburban North London, where Mark System spent his formative years, is symbolic. Inspired by the city’s pirate radio stations, the young composer, performer, and musician experimented with keyboards, microphones, and tape.
Making a name for himself as an MC in the capital’s club and radio scenes, he rose to prominence in the late ’90s and early ’00s. This resulted in performances throughout the United Kingdom and Europe.
Meanwhile, his own music gained popularity and support from the scene’s most renowned tastemakers, including Shy FX, who took him under his wing. Mark’s subsequent collaboration with Digital Soundboy Recording Company led to a number of high profile remixes and solo projects for the label.
Exit Records and dBridge, both longtime supporters of Mark’s work, cemented their allegiance by publishing his debut album, “Final Approach”, in the spring of 2015.
Mark has condensed his expertise as a producer and DJ, into the essentials in order to make a statement. His music is mature and assured, but not tamed and the intensity of his DJ sets elicits intense emotions. They are edgy and yet accessible.
His ever-expanding ambitions now drive him back to experimentation, which will allow him to fully utilise his musicianship, flair, and imagination.
Speak with the man himself and you’ll find him modest and reserved, preferring to talk about his passion over his many accomplishments.
