Mark E: A Deep Grooves Master for Disco Soul
Mark E is a DJ and producer from Wolverhampton, who crafts steady, soulful house music with a unique edge. Unlike flashy club DJs, his tunes are slow-burning and timeless.
Mark's love affair with electronic dance music began early, as an adolescent, when rave culture swept through England. Being schooled in the art of the Groove by legends like Frankie Knuckles, Mark E developed his production skills, eventually launching MERC, his own label that birthed his blue-collar grooves: house music that felt rough and real, like classic tunes in a factory with a touch of disco warmth.
In 2005, Mark released “Scared”, a ten-minute rework of "Baby, I'm Scared of You" by Womack & Womack, coughing the attention of the influential selector and BBC DJ, Giles Peterson, and leading to a string of awesome vinyl records that made him a house music hero. In 2011, Mark launched his debut album “Stone Breaker” on the prestigious label Ghostly/Spectral.
