Mark Dynamix

Having deejayed professionally for more than 15 years, Mark is a significant figure in Australian dance music culture. To date, he has 26 mix CDs, 4 original releases and multiple remixes to his name. With sales fast approaching 2million units, no Australian DJ has sold more compilations. His mix for Ministry of Sounds “The Annual” became the highest selling compilation in the country ever, dance or otherwise.

Of course none of this would mean anything if he didn’t have talent. Mark’s expertise with the decks combined with an inspired track selection works alchemy on a room full of clubbers, swaying anyone within earshot to become a dedicated dance music aficionado. His ability to discover and develop the next sound is unparalleled in Australia, and the rise of Minimal and Electro in Australia can in part be attributed to his continual endorsement and personal affiliation with the genres. Regarded and awarded as the hardest working DJ in the industry, Mark is dutiful in his approach to deejaying; continually pushing the boundaries with his unique sound and educating Australians about underground electronica. Marks deejaying is more than finding the right tunes or playing solid sets of house, minimal or techno; Mark knows how to pull it all together and how to turn a deejay set into an experience.

Marks success as a deejay has been equaled by his original production. Mark was awarded as Top 5th producer in Australia at the ITM50 Awards in 2007. With remixes from Daniel Taylor and Chopstick “IDentify Me”, was play listed on high rotation on ABCs alternative radio network Triple J and was licensed locally and internationally to numerous compilations including The Annual in Germany and Ageha in Japan. His second single “Destructor” showcased a minimal electro sound; with remixes from Mashtronic, Jono Fernandez, Nick Galea & Matt Nugent.

There are also the soon to be released singles; “Moment Of Confusion Between Man & Dog” which explores new musical territory and “What You Do to Me” which is due for release in Australia in early 2008.

In latter half of 2007 Mark resided in the world’s electronica hub; Berlin which has greatly increased Mark’s profile in Europe. Using Germany as a base Mark played gigs across Europe including Fluid in London, Naughty in Brussels and Climax in Stuttgart. Mark also completed several tracks collaborating with his favourite producers; Chopstick, JohnJon (Chopstick) and Namito (Great Stuff).

Naturally well also see more remixes, of which Mark has so far has laid down his interpretations for Swedens Stisch, the U.Ks Fine Young Cannibals & Australias Darren Hayes. His remix of Datarocks “I Used To Dance With My Daddy” is featured on his latest compilation Discotek. Marks remix of Mashtronics “Earthquake” achieved chart success in the US, where it debuted at Number 1 on the Balance Record Pool Chart.

Overseas and domestically, Mark has hosted a long list of radio shows over the years, a medium that has enabled Mark to continue his unadulterated education of underground sounds to his dedicated fan base. And recently Mark was the official DJ of the 2007 MTV AVMAs; an event hosted by Fergie featuring Pink, Good Charlotte and Silverchair. It was the first time the privilege had been extended to an Australian DJ.

Since 1997, Mark has toured Australia and New Zealand relentlessly. International touring commenced in 2002 with events played throughout Asia, Europe and Canada. Mark has played the Love Parade in Berlin, the Hultsfred Festival in Stockholm as well as a host of clubs including The End in London, Fabric Canada and Mambo in Ibiza.
