Mark Ramsey’s mission for music is clear: to bring charisma, passion, flavor and flow to the dance floor, an ever-expanding, pulsing wonderland full of mashed-up beats, sun-drenched soul-vibes and powerful percussion that people can dance, dip and move through. Mark has created this world through music.
"I love exploring and creating different sounds. From funk, soul, and hip hop to latin, drum & bass, rear groove, and hardcore. Plus places that inspire my soul like Ibiza, Spain, Germany, London, Jamaica… Music for me is a never-ending journey," Ramsey says.
From all his releases, you already know you’re in for a diverse ride of styles. He smoothly combines funk, house, electronica and Balearic base on a groove-oriented tip, perfectly balancing beats for both the headphones and dancefloor. Mark’s sound is sophisticated and sexy, while still staying true to its roots. Mark effortlessly transports you from the relaxing beaches of Salinas to the streets of South London, and everywhere in between.
His new label, Whampt Recordings brings new sounds to you and Mark continues his mission of showcasing new, modern global sounds from the magical Mediterranean.
