Mark Sides

Haslemere, United Kingdom



Marks passion for funky house is evident every time he takes to the decks. With a giant smile and a soulful and disco style track selection, he instantly connects with the crowd on the dancefloor, taking them on a ride through the best of funk orientated house with an ear for deftly matching melodies and top-notch programming. He has developed a unique encapsulation of funky rhythms and house music, but his skills are such that he can take the audience anywhere they’ll let him.

Mark has been mixing for eleven years, and has been teasing crowds since 1995, when he co-founded Ego, promoting his own house nights in The Drink, RSVP, The Aquarium and many other top bars and clubs in and around the UK capital. In 1999 Mark then went on to play on underground radio such as Green Apple, Point Blank and Streaming FM where he began to feel the funky beats and enjoyed playing to and enchanted and loyal listener base, giving him insight into a rapidly expanding funky house scene.

Through this a new avenue of dazzling staged events were thrust toward him enabling him to tap into this new style of house. Some of my favorite venues to play have been the CC Club, London, Po Na Na, London and club DNA in Birmingham.

Marks plans are to now use the knowledge he has built up over the last eleven years to build his reputation and wisdom, but mainly to rip up dancefloors all over the UK and enter the International scene.

Mark has also begun producing his owns music and is devoting his boundless energy on a handful of music projects and is hoping to begin releasing by January 2005.
