mixing up elegant, post-digital, melodic techno and minimal tech-house like a mothafucker...
Since moving to Barcelona 14 years ago, Mark has worked with many of Spain's coolest electronic music brands such as Blanco y Negro Records (some A&R projects with Vendetta Records), Loca FM (Broadcaster) & Pacha Sitges playing regularly at the first ever Pacha in the world for 5 years.
Formerly a spin doctor, he is now a journalist, radio presenter & sync-button soldier of ill repute. As a DJ, Mark spins a selection of elegant, post-digital melodic techno, minimal techno, tech-house & electronica productions.
He has also put in a few hours advising/representing or managing artists like Matt Samuels (now at Toolroom), Kaysee (Subliminal Records, Hed Kandi, MN2S, Los40s), Lenny Fontana (Defected) & Andrew Galea (The Freestylers) among others during that time getting extensive experience on radio, digital rights management and music publishing. Some new projects are in the pipeline for 2017 and beyond.
Mark was the label manager at Sintetics Digital, a label consistently delivering top-quality underground techno under head-honcho Javi Lago - supported by DJs like Laurent Garnier, Luciano, Marco Carola or Paco Osuna.
Before that, he began a record label with Slovenian DJ and producer, Girandon. Radioactivity Productions featured productions by himself, Girandon, Tony Thomas, MIndskap, Dani Sbert & Rob Small... tracks supported by Roger Sanchez, Stonebridge or Lucien Foort to boot.
He has also released tracks & co-productions on Tony Thomas' imprint Progress Records and remixed techno legend Devilfish on Barcelona's Ahoren Music with production partner Teysel.
Currently, he is the Nightlife Editor of Barcelona's leading English language magazine, Barcelona Connect. Other freelance writing engagements include recently interviewing Dubfire, Laurent Garnier, Vitalic and Jean-Michel Jarre for high profile pieces in the Sun newspaper or for Decoded Magazine.
Mark J - aka Supagroove - has headlined at events in a few different countries, supporting the world's finest electronic music artists including Agoria, Alan Fitzpatrick, Ben Sims, Billy Nasty, Funk D'Void, Silicone Soul, Stanton Warriors or Vince Watson for example... and recently with Cipy (Haiku 575), John Jacobsen, Mikel Molina, Tony Verdi or Triumph in Barcelona, or back in the day with Parks n' Wilson or Justin Robertson in the UK.
His sessions have won admiration, support and acclaim from Loca FM (Spain), Global House Radio (Spain), Robert Babicz (Germany), Solarstone (Solaris International UK), Jondi & Spesh (USA), Shiba San (Dirty Bird) and Afterlife (Cafe del Mar).
