Mark Reeve

Minimal Tech House Techno Electronica

Scene: UK. Time: Early 90s.
Mark Reeve, 12 years old, gets infected with the electronic virus. UK is in rave fever with breaks, beats and bass. Mark concentates on the harder rave sound of London's funky house vibes, then develops his own style. At the age of 16, he starts to play regularly as a club DJ. His passion for juicy electric sound then knew no borders.

Middle of the 90s:
The Reeves move to Germany - a new start for the young DJ. Mark starts to visit clubs like The Omen and extends his horizon by the sound played in Frankfurt (Germany) by Sven Väth, Ricardo Villalobos and others. However, his homebase sound remains tech house and techno with groovy rhythms and bang out beats and most importantly, that hip swinging touch.

Mark is now known as a non stop DJ. As an artist, he has now had his most important releases on cult label, Cocoon Recordings but also Traumschallplatten, Trapez and Monique Musique. His tracks are always a mixture between dancefloor moovers - including groovy rhythms - and big basslines.

In 2012, Mark teamed up with Cocoon duo Pig & Dan, which has proved to be an amazing partnership. Soma Records is the first label to finish the final step and release the first EP, which is available now. Mark will also be releasing his own EP on Soma in May, which makes everything complete. Not only can his original tracks be heard, but also remix projects have been started and finished from Extrawelt, Arnaud Le Texier and Moonbeam - just to name a few.

More of Mark's tracks will be out in 2012 on labels such as Bedrock, Soma, Herzblut, Traumschallplatten, Trapez, Boxer Recordings and Onolog.
