Mark E’s introduction came in 2005 when Jisco music released his edit of Womack & Womack’s Baby im scared of you to world wide acclaim, cained by the likes of the Unabombers, Gilles Petterson, Prins Thomas and Theo Parrish, followed by a number of equally prolific edits Mark cemented his reputation at the fore of the deep disco edit genre, hailed by composts Michael Ruetten as King of edits.
Since then Mark has become a prolific producer in his own right releasing original music on Running Back Records, Internasjonal, Jisco, Golf Channel, Creative Use and Sonar Kollektiv, with remix offers coming in thick and fast from all over the world its turned into another succesful year for the Birmingham based producer, leading to DJ gigs all over the UK and Europe, a typical Mark E set can range from detroit beatdown to screaming disco stormers and back to deep deep house.
2009 looks set to be an even busier year, with rumours of Mark starting up his own label so expect more of the same from myster E!
