Jacking vibes and deep rolling grooves are the trademark aural weapons for Mark Longhurst. Taking cues from the likes of Mark Farina, Watti Green, Cevin Fisher, Oliver$ and Vincenzo, his sets take the scenic route through funky house, techno and straight out party jammies. Experienced as a mood setter, he knows when to shift the gears up, when to slow it down, and when to buckle the hell up and floor through bushland.
But where where we?
Mark cut his teeth with a residency at North Gong Sundays, a Wollongong party institution and bastion of deep house that sees over 1000 heads getting down every week on a sunny afternoon. His ability on the decks, and distinct sound quickly drew the attention of local promoters, and in a short span of time he found himself holding down guest spots both around Wollongong (151, Platform 3, Glasshouse Tavern, Dunes, Beach Bar, Harp, to mention a few) and Sydney, most notably at Kings Cross hotspot Soho where he warmed the floor for international touring DJ's Bassjackers on Madi Gras weekend.
His acumen for setting the right vibe saw him warm up for a whole cross section of touring Dj's, including Dyed Soundorom (Fra), Bassjackers (Ned), Illya, Alex Taylor, HooknSling, The Stafford Brothers, Kato, Ember, Timmy Trumpet, Nukewood, Oaks & Lennox, Tenzin & winner of Australia's "She can DJ competition" Minx.
Restless and seeking new inspiration, he relocated to Melbourne in early 2012 and, wasting no time, quickly began delving into the rich night culture of his adopted home. A successful tilt at the Holliava DJ competition saw him welcomed into the fold.
One year on, Mark is recognised as one of Richmond's premier EDM entertainers. Combining explosive commercial house with West Coast, Jackin', and Tech grooves, Longhurst is a genuine party starter, and can be heard setting the tone at Bridge Hotel, Richmond Club, Blue Diamond, Holliava, & Left Bank several nights a week.
