D-Mark is Marcos Ligero. Born in 1984, he started with the music at the early age of 13. Enthusiast of the dance genre of the moment, he passed to be a mere follower of this music to become producer, initiating in this fascinating world at the hands of the very well known trackers that were used in that times. His ambition and his passion for the music, as well as his capacity to create and to make people feel, would turn D-Mark into a very young producer with a lot of talent.
With those trackers he improved his technics, what drove him to lead a project called Vanian-UT, which the only aim was to spread all of these tracks made with that software. What started to be a project fully charged of illusion, soon would become in a thruth that exceeded all the expects. In 2002, Vanian-UT was finally known in Spain as a young producers’ collective with a lot of talent, also focused to the DJing.
Since then, Marcos put his sights to the DJing, carrying his music through all the spanish territory in cities like Ibiza, Barcelona, Girona, Madrid or Valladolid, and countries like Norway, England and Slovenia, playing alongside with some of the most influenced DJs of the dance scene, like Above & Beyond, Menno de Jong, Lemon & Einar K or Inkfish to name a few. He has been working also with world renowned labels and marks like Ministry of Sound, especially in one of his appearances in the city of Oslo (Norway).
His first release, “Travelling EP”, was awarded as the best of year in its genre by the DJ1 Magazine, as well as being played in a very range of radio shows and being included during 10 consecutive weeks in the Netherlands’ Technics Dance Chart. Later, it was included in one of the most important Ministy of Sound’s compilations at the hands of Dave Pearce. Following there, Travelling was followed by so many original tracks and remixes that have been played by DJs from around the world, such as Ferry Corsten, Armin Van Buuren, Paul Van Dyk, Above & Beyond and Aly & Fila, among others. He has been working with labels like Ligaya Recordings, Royal-Tek and the same Ministry of Sound, cited above.
