All the learning in the world cannot replace instinct. And it is that instinct, that innate aptitude for embedding funk-laden basslines into electronic music that has made Mark Jenkyns the exciting prospect that he is today. His natural understanding of the dancefloor coupled with his impulsive methods to spark it into action have enabled him to garner a reputation as both a forward thinking producer and immersive DJ.
Having grown up in South Shields in the north east of England, it took a trip to Ibiza in 2003 to finally prompt Mark into getting involved with the scene he loved. So powerful was the influence of the White Isle on Mark’s career that the spirit and ethos of the island still permeates his sound today. His ability to work a consummate mix of warm, deep house infused with a ghetto-funk danceability has already captured the attention of an enviable mix of top DJs and fans alike. Mark has enjoyed a series of well received releases on Hot Creations and Hot Waves in addition to a string of performances alongside the labels’ finest talents.
He makes his debut on Skream’s Of Unsound Mind and took the opportunity to experiment and delve deep into techno. ‘Transmission’ brings the peak time energy track whilst ‘Kiss It’ provides the antidote rolling out a smooth infectious groove.
