Before Sintetics, he began a record label with Slovenian DJ and producer, Girandon, called Radioactivity Productions featuring himself, Girandon, Tony Thomas, Dani Sbert & Rob Small on the artists roster with tracks that are still available on digital download stores today.
Mark 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.
He is currently Nightlife editor of Barcelona's leading English language magazine, Barcelona Connect, and contributes to the Sun UK's Clubz section, recently interviewing Jean Michel Jarre, Billy Nasty and covering Barcelona's infamous Sonar festival for the newspaper.
