Biography

Language: English

Mark Oliver, hailing from Glasgow, Scotland, exploded onto the Toronto club scene in the late 1980’ and played a pivotal role in the development of the electronic music scene with his residencies at such legendary clubs as Krush, Tazmanian Ballroom, Cameron House and GoGo.

He also pioneered the Canadian “rave” movement by being the first DJ to play acid house and techno nights, as well as founding Exodus – North America’ first-ever rave organization. Mark has played virtually every club and major event in Toronto where he can currently be found Fridays at Meow and at his wildly popular Saturday night 9-hour set at The Guvernment, Canada’ largest club.

Despite his busy schedule, Mark has managed to travel abroad on occasion, and play alongside the likes of Sasha, Danny Tenaglia, Paul Oakenfold, John Digweed, Laurent Garnier, Tall Paul, Nick Warren, Seb Fontaine, Judge Jules, Derrick Carter, Timo Maas, Masters at Work, Daft Punk, Jamiroquai, Underworld, The Chemical Brothers, and Moby.

He has also played a host of private parties for celebrities such as Madonna, The Rolling Stones, Prince, and Lenny Kravitz.

With at least four regular gigs per week, plus radio and television appearances, Mark Oliver is considered by many to be the most versatile DJ in Canada, and is currently displaying his talent in the production field with remixes, original material, and a series of mixed compilations.
