Mark Broom - Biography:
Since the start of 90s, Former East Londoner now Norfolk based Mark Broom has always been a name that is synonymous with the UK electronic music scene. A truly prolific artist, he has a myriad of production credits to his name having worked with world renowned labels such as Mo-Wax, Warp, R&S, Soma, Ifach (with Baby Ford ) Bpitch Control, Platzhirsch,Rotary Cocktail, Material and more recently 2020 vision It all started in the summer of 89 when he landed in Tenerife on vacation and stumbled across the delights of the emerging sounds of Chicago & Acid House. Returning to the UK, he immediately went in search of this new found music a pair of turntables were bought and with it, a musical career was born. A regular customer at Londonâ€™s Fatcat record store, Mark found himself at the epicenter of a burgeoning scene. In 92, a certain Pete Baby Ford was on the scout for Djs to play at his new Club Night, Nude. When a mix tape was put directly in to his hands, Marks turntable skills were soon in demand. A short time afterwards, he found himself in being introduced to Ed Handley and Andy Turner from the infamous Black Dog Productions. The meeting brought about the foundations of a solid studio partnership, with the trio putting together a string of releases for the seminal General Productions Records, all recorded at UXB studios. Run by a certain Dave Hill, after two years of coming and going to his east London hideout, Dave approached Mark about making some music together. From there, a longstanding partnership was spawned with the founding of Pure Plastic Recordings in 1994. With the label having played host to some of Marks finest work, the release of the classic Angie is a shoplifter LP in 1996 cemented his reputation as a leader in the scene. In 2001, further notable success was scored with the writing of Rue Eastâ€™s Indoor Culture Lp alongside Dave Hill. An album which brought about the massive techno classic, Birmingham. Marks services as a Dj and re-mixer have also been in high demand over the past two decades having played around the globe at some of the worlds best clubs: from Fuse to Fabric, to La real and Florida 135 and, he has also had the pleasure of reworking material from artists such as Steve Rachmad, Ken Ishi, The Advent, Eddie Flashin Fowlkes, Ben Sims and more recently Mason on Great stuff.

Last November Mark Broom and James Ruskin released 'Light Box' an album as 'The Fear Ratio' (aka Mark Broom & James Ruskin) on Blueprint Records..
In terms of UK techno, there's few who can match the credentials of Mark Broom and James Ruskin. Broom has been active on the scene since back in the early '90s and has the discography to back it up. R&S, Soma, Mo-Wax and Warp have all given a home to his productions down the years, while more recently it's been Nic Fanciulli's Saved Recordsâ€”with whom he last year released Acid Houseâ€”who have been the primary outlet for his classicist techno excursions.
Ruskin first made his mark a little later than Broom but not by much. He set up his Blueprint imprint in 1996 and has since released countless numbers of his own 12-inches alongside his work for revered Berlin imprint Tresor.
In terms of their work in tandem, Broom and Ruskin have released a trio of 12-inches together over the past 12 months but none thus far as The Fear Ratio. Although Light Box isn't a step away from the dance floor entirely, the name change has certainly signalled a shift in approach. Ambient and experimental passages rub shoulders with gritty electro and techno across its 11 main tracks, while there's also room for a couple of bonus remixes: Warp's Plaid gets stuck into "Morning Blues" and Ruskin and Broom adopt another alias, Deadhand, for their remix of "Guv Three."
Mark also goes under the alias of Lighter Thief.
