London’s Mark-Henning has risen up as one of the international underground's true players - recording for a volley of acclaimed European labels by night and slaving as a corporate whore by day. But now Mark has freed himself from the 9 to 5 shackles and slog of the city to concentrate on his passion for music full time - ROCK N'ROLL! Born in 1977 to English and German parents, he has spent most of his life in England, though has never forgotten his German techno roots and has recently relocated to Berlin. Inspired by a whole range of music (from Dan Bell to Dinosaur Jr. to Ed Rush & Optical), Mark-Henning's sound sits somewhere between house and techno, with a healthy dose of futuristic bleeps, funk, darkness, groove and deepness.
Mark has established himself as a player in the scene over the last couple of years, not just through his productions (on labels such as Soma, Cynosure, Trapez, Freude am Tanzen, Foundsound, Einmaleins, Frankie, Morris Audio, Safari Electronique, Mo’s Ferry, Milnor Modern), but also through his world-wide performances - mixing up deep house, techno and everything inbetween to get dancefloors kicking up a sweat. His releases have found their way into the record boxes of the likes of Ricardo Villalobos, Craig Richards, Akufen, Ryan Elliot, Laurent Garnier and Richie Hawtin to name just a few. Additionally his tracks have been included in compilations such as MANDY's latest Fabric mix and Magda's Minus mix - as well as acheiving airplay on radio stations worldwide.
Balancing his heavy day job in London with his music wasn't easy, but the hard work over the past few years is beginning to pay off. Mark is now a sought-after producer and remixer in the underground scene and his DJing has taken him all over world. He's performed in the US, Canada, Japan, Russia and all over Europe - and now also holds a residency at 'Home' near Frankfurt in Germany. Watch out for his debut album on Soma in the summer of 2008 plus more remixes and EPs.. stay tuned!
