Producer based in the Scottish Highlands, with releases on Fly Boy Records and Mau5trap. Supported by the likes of BBC Radio 1, Deadmau5, Icarus, Illyus & Barrientos, Eton Messy, Kideko, and Hannah Wants.
Named as "one of Scotland’s most promising young acts" by Data Transmission, Mark Mackenzie is a fast rising name in the UK music scene. Previous releases on Concrete Music, Arthouse and Fly Boy have gathered support from the likes of Deadmau5, Icarus, Hannah Wants, Illyus & Barrientos, Rene Amez, Eton Messy, Tough Love and Kristian Beyer (Ame) among many others.
As a born and devoted Highlander, Mark spent years shaping and developing his local club scene with intimate parties and forward thinking music policies. Welcoming world renowned underground guest DJ’s to share the booth in the Northern city of Inverness, it wasn’t long before his production talents were picked up by BBC Introducing and then Portsmouth based label Concrete Music.
In the years to follow, Mark Mackenzie’s music featured in DJ sets across the globe with international and national club, festival and radio plays, including BBC Radio 1, 1Xtra and Rinse FM. ‘One Two Step’ became a favourite for many, with Hannah Wants and Kry Wolf repeatedly showing support. More success soon followed with ‘Earworm’ which charted well into the Beatport Top 100, and Beatport themselves went on to name it one of their ‘Must Hear House’ picks.
After a run of top selling releases on Concrete Music, charting UK producers ‘Icarus’ were quick to sign him to their renowned label ‘Fly Boy’. It’s here that Mark adapted a production style that would further project his name into the UK Scene. Singles ‘Tell Me What’, ’Swell’ and 'Sunstroke' went on to gather support from more heavy hitters such as Deadmau5, Axwell, Lane 8, 99Souls, Eton Messy and Tough Love to name a few.
Mark’s ability to reach out to multiple electronic genres is mirrored in his DJ and Live performances. Long hours crate digging, tuning and editing, as well as years of experience holding down residencies with some of the North’s top club events, makes Mark a true selector with a passion. As a founder and resident of one of Scotland’s most talked about, sell out parties ‘OutDores’, Mark has proven himself to be a DJ who puts the crowd at the centre of his attention and continually works to push the scene forward.
It’s this integrity and knowledge for warming up crowds that earned him stage appearances next to some of the worlds biggest DJ’s such as Annie Mac, Skream, Leftfield, Faithless and Basement Jaxx.
