With Spanish origins, Mark’s was born in Nîmes in 1977. Since the age of 16
he has been openly passionate about electronic music.
“At my first parties, instead of dancing with my mates, I would spend the
entire night stuck to the HI-FI, putting on tracks.
Then along came my first rave parties. When I was 18 we hired a generator
and took some decks with us and threw a party in the open air. By morning,
I ended up at mine mixing acid-techno to the disapproval of my neighbours.
In 1997, I began to frequent a dance bar where I discovered a new sound and
a new style of music. This was House Music.
The manager of the bar, who had confidence in my talent, pointed me in the
direction of an electro event management organisation.
In March 97 the Oxy’Zen adventure began. I met some very enriching people,
during the 5 years of this collaboration, which were marked with

“Me and my vinyls have travelled together from Nîmes, to Montpellier,

gave him the opportunity to co-organise the ‘BUTTERFLY’ nights.

In the meantime, following the GRAVITY festival at ‘La Villa Rouge’, Mark’s
has got the GRAVITY group involved in the Parisian club scene working in one
of Paris’ biggest clubs ‘le Studio 287’.
“In line with this, I have a lot of other plans. I am developing my musical
knowledge with the help of established professionals from Bakelite Studios.
I spend my nights on my Apple Mac and on my keyboard. My objective is to
produce my first release.

Generous, but also shy, when I’m behind the decks its thanks to the music
that I am able to come out of my shell to share the emotional intensity of
the mix with my audience.”
DJ Mark’s mixes other styles with tidy electro house for high profile,
classy bars and clubs, café style House or Electro tech for festival goers.
This DJ’s secret? A mix of technique and positive energy, which he cleverly
transmits to his audience.
