On WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 26th, STUNNA closes out another exciting month of programs in 'THE GREENROOM' on BASSDRIVE Radio. In this week's edition, we're treated to a guest mix from multi-talented artist MARK KLOUD, as he makes his debut appearance on the program.
A veteran DJ and producer, BUFFALO, NEW YORK-based artist MARK KLOUD (aka MARK VALKWITCH) is notably known for his abstract and experimental approach in uptempo electronic music. With over 20 years experience as a DJ and over 10 years as a producer, he has carved his name into the underground world of DRUM + BASS/JUNGLE music. MARK's dark atmospheres, intricate sound design, coupled with precision drum programming and murky bass, have made him a unique contributor to the 160-170 BPM community. Heavily influenced by FOOTWOEK/JUKE, MARK gained notoriety in that genre, fusing that sound with 90's JUNGLE. This led MARK to start his own imprint GROUND MASS MUSIC. Most recently, MARK has developed a particular sound revolving around minimal, deep and ethereal, pulling inspiration from DUB and TECHNO. Over the years, with releases on labels such as LOSSLESS MUSIC, TRANSLATOIN RECORDINGS, NORD LABEL, ONSET AUDIO, SUBLIMATE, and TERRA NULL RECORDINGS, he has gained support from the likes of J:KENZO, OM UNIT, SCOTT, DEFT, SOUL INTENT, and SILENT DUST.
2020 is a significant year for MARK, as AUGUST 21st sees the release of his 'MOONQUAKE' LP on LONDON-based LOSSLESS MUSIC's sub label EXKURSIONS, and also look out for a new EP on U.S.-based TRANSLATION RECORDINGS.
A few words from LOSSLESS MUSIC/EXKURSIONS/DOPE PLATES label head SOUL INTENT (aka ALEC JUDD) about MARK KLOUD's brand new 'MOONQUAKE' album...
"LOSSLESS MUSIC are extremely proud to present the stunning debut solo album from the BUFFALO breakbeat scientist MARK KLOUD. Ever since MARK sent over some demo tracks back in 2017, I've been watching and listening to his output with great interest. MARK featured on DOPE005 with the beautiful JUNGLE saturated track "STRENGTH". Shortly after, I offered MARK the opportunity to write a long player for LOSSLESS’s leftfield and experimental sub-label EXKURSIONS, which felt like the perfect home for his beautiful, ambient 170BPM ventures. 'MOONQUAKE' features 11 striking tracks showcasing MARK’s amazing skills as a producer, delving deep into ambient and ethereal soundscapes."
Please join STUNNA this session as he welcomes MARK KLOUD into the friendly confines of 'THE GREENROOM' for an exclusive guest mix featuring cutting edge music from himself and other like-minded producers around the globe. Tune in!!
