Det Sync Radio 028 – Man2.0
Our latest Det Sync Radio comes from Man2.0.
In 1994 the explosion in Britpop and Grunge inspired him to pick up a guitar and attach himself to some of the worst bands in West London, with welding equipment, in some cases.
As time went on, artists like the Chemical Brothers and Daft Punk began to inspire him to seek out more and more electronic music. Now working in record shops as a vinyl buyer, his vinyl sections would never make money but would always have some of the most diverse, house, techno, breakbeat and EBM…As well as a copy of Carpenters Gold which he couldn’t sell so would eventually buy himself.
He began to embrace London’s then bustling nightclub scene being a regular punter at Fabric, Turnmills and the End standing at the booth, eyes like saucers, while the likes of Craig Richards, James Lavelle, Laurent Garnier, Justin Robertson and Darren Emerson destroyed dance floors.
In recent years Mark turned to production himself and after getting some attention from the Ransom Note and 44100kz Social Club via Soundcloud under his Manmachine201 moniker, had a number of Tracks picked up by Tronik Youth’s Post Techno label Nein, which has become the spiritual home of MAN2.0.
With releases or remixes due on Nein, Flight Recorder, Det Sync, Regith as well as Jo Howard’s new imprint Sulk Magic and forthcoming DJ gigs from Nottingham to Berlin, it’s a busy time for a man who has recently just had a second child. Good job he thrives on a bit of chaos really.
