Recognised in equal measures for his expert command of the dance floor, his heavyweight productions and his close affinity to the Paradise and Hot Creations family, Mark Jenkyns has become an undeniable stalwart of the house and techno scene with an impressive and ever-expanding list of accolades that includes release on Suara, Crosstown Rebels, Hot Creations, Defected and VIVa.
The Newcastle native has always relied on skills and talent to prove himself, and with his most recent ‘Sirens EP’ landing on Hottrax and hitting the overall Beatport top 10 within just three days, it’s easy to understand why he holds residencies at Paradise and Abode in Ibiza, and elite party brands like Elrow and VIVa Warriors have him featuring on line-ups across the globe.
With an impressive Autumn/Winter run of shows that will see Mark hit dancefloors from Ibiza to South America, the real icing on the cake comes as an invitation from the Hot Creations boss himself, Jamie Jones, for Mark to join him on a tour as his official warm up DJ. Understanding the intricacies and nuances involved when reading and warming up a crowd is an often underestimated skill, but one that has seen Mark carving a niche for himself in an unforgiving industry.
A firm believer that positivity helps drive success, unwavering support for Mark’s music comes from a vast range of names across the electronic music scene, from Richy Ahmed, Groove Armada and Riva Starr, to Pete Tong, Annie Mac and Danny Howard – with a fresh focus on production and big plans for 2018, expect to see a lot more names added to that list in the not too distant future.
