NUDE053: Mark Greene
Mark Greene is an Irish DJ/Producer based in Meath just outside Dublin.
Witnessing the likes of The Advent & Industrialyzer, Richie Hawtin and Dave Clarke on the Dublin Techno scene led him to running his own events with friends and pursuing a diploma in Sound Engineering. Three years later he signed his first track to Berlin-based label Berlin Aufnahmen. Each year since, Mark’s sound has developed with appearances on David Temessi’s DSR Digital, Andrea Frisina’s Gate Null Recordings and John ‘00’ Fleming’s underground label JOOF Records.
Following a spate of heavy-hitting releases, Mark had his first International gig…in Berlin. Since then, he has made subsequent appearances in Germany as well as Austria, the Netherlands, Lithuania, Poland and of course Ireland. Alongside busy evenings in his small studio, Mark hosts a monthly radio show entitled ‘Progress Radio’. The show is broadcast via Syndicast.co.uk on over 32 stations worldwide from Russia to Argentina, Italy to Japan and it is also available on SoundCloud and iTunes.
Having initially being known for his harder take on Techno, Mark’s productions have moved toward a more groove-orientated approach in recent years. With original releases now signed to labels like Spektre’s Respekt Recordings, Steve Mulder’s Orange Recordings, Oscar Aguilera’s HE-ART and Hollen’s Italian imprint Prospect Records, Mark looks to be riding the crest of a wave.
Today, he joins the NUDE Techno podcast, with an hour of Techno. Listen to it below on SoundCloud & Mixcloud. If you are feeling this series, then please consider supporting it on Mixcloud Select.
Sum up this podcast in 10 words…
From start to finish it’s a journey of pure energy.
What’s your personal favourite track on it?
Without sounding biased I love the new one from Jovan Vehn, ‘Rebirth of the Phoenix’. It is the lead track on the upcoming release on my label DORCHA next month (February 12th). I heard a few of his tracks over the last few months and wanted to get him in for a release. He put together 6 tracks and this one is a belter!
What’s the special ingredient in this mix?
Like all my mixes and productions I like to keep the energy and power flowing. I put in one of my new productions that’s titled ‘Jargon’. I think this track can bring any set to life with its pounding drums and rave like lead.
Tell us about your next EP?
My next EP is a 5 tracker on DORCHA. All 5 tracks are fast-paced, non-apologetic Techno with some older influences throughout. I’m finding much more enjoyment in making tougher, faster techno. Some tracks are 145 bpm!
What have you got coming up?
I’ve really gotten the most out of all my spare time during all these lock-downs and I used a huge amount of that time to focus on new tracks. This year I’ll be focusing on building my label DORCHA and getting some exciting new producers on board. I’d love to say there are gigs to look forward to….but hopefully sooner rather than later.
And finally, do you have a special message for our readers?
I think it’s all been said before, but hopefully things return to normal ASAP so we can all let loose…preferably somewhere sunny! Also….check out Jovan’s upcoming release.
