The 31 year-old DJ and Producer got an early start, spinning his first onstage gig with Marko V at the age of 17.

Furthermore, he has produced and released his own original remixes with Sony Music, Universal and AWAL for the likes of R3hab, Anthony Touma and Kalpee. Now DJing around the UAE, Mark has played at many of the Capital’s major events including Abu Dhabi World Triathlon, Volvo Ocean Race and the Formula 1 Weekend.
