Don’t Stay In Mix of the Week 032 – MRK 1 (Dubstep)…

MRK1 a one man Mancunian sonic wrecking ball, an early pioneer of the new global dub step sound, he’s been consistently producing and releasing music for over ten years!! It all began as MRK1 aka ‘MARK FOSTER’ started making Drum & Bass towards the turn of the new millennium, he then began working with Grime and it was from there that he developed his style capturing a resonance and a depth that would help shape the early creation of the future sound that we know as Dubstep.

Earlier this year, MRK1 mixed our Future:Dubstep:03 compilation  with over 20 completely exclusive tracks from some of the genres longest running players as well as the best in up and coming talent.

When deciding who should mix Future:Dubstep:03 there was no hesitation in asking MRK1 (Previously known as Mark One and real name, Mark Foster). He is undoubtedly one of Dubstep’s most established and respected figure heads. Through his own contagious label, mix compilations including Rephlex’s ‘Grime’ (a key release in pushing the Dubstep / Grime sound to a wider audience) and releases on the genres biggest labels including two artist albums, MRK1 is without shadow of a doubt one of the genre’s most influential and successful artists.

Apart from production and mix compilations though, Mark has also DJ’d all over the world and played at some of the globe’s best clubs and biggest festivals including: Glastonbury (UK), Ros Kilde (Denmark), Wilsonic (Solvenia), 10 Days Off (Gent), Sonar (Barcelona), Glade (UK), and Cream (UK).

MRK1’s success behind the decks and studio buttons have led him to appear on almost every major UK radio station including Kiss FM,  BBC Radio 1, 1xtra and Galaxy FM. On top of this Mark has also been featured in major dance publications from Mixmag to IDJ and DJ magazine.

Featuring on the compilation are three records from Hatcha & Kromestar as well as a host of records from MRK1 himself and bonus tracks from Cyrus (of Random Trio). Future:Dubstep:03 also previews tracks from some of Dubstep’s best up & coming talent including the consistently genre chart topping Bare Noize (who also mixed Future:Dubstep:02), Rebel Sonix, Scott Nixon, RMS and Trimaxis.
