About mjtheone /
A Northerner by heart, a Northerner by nature, DJ Mark J oozes friendliness like he’s just been smacked round the face with it. “I’m a very friendly guy, a lot of DJs have big egos. I don’t.” And with this friendly nature comes the kind of ‘go easiness’ that we all could do with a little more of. “My prerogative is, I play cool music, to cool people. And if they like it, then that’s cool too!” Mark J’s definition of cool music is deep , funky, soulful house,
Originating from Hull, Mark J quickly familiarised himself with this kind of music in the early eighties,soul, disco travelling to the big Northern cities where “good all-nighters” were the place to be. “I fell in love with the music, the lifestyle and the people so I wanted to bring a little of it back home.” Dipping into his pockets to fund a hobby, Mark J purchased a set of DJ decks and started his journey. Playing soul funk n disco i soon fell into the early house groove. Playing at Welly Club Hull, then various warehouse parties in and around Yorkshire. “It was all about house music for me. ” I love all styles of house as long as its got a fat bass line and nice vocals. Soho resident 4 years, Deep Blue fm. Bar So, Westleigh Hotel Parties, Endorset Festival, Beatwinus Radio, Afrodisiac Radio, The Winchester.
