Mark Henning

Mark Henning at run

Mark-Henning is an artist living a dual existence; by day working amongst the suits as a database managing corporate whore, but by night shedding his tie and cufflinks to become a subversive underground sound sculptor with an insatiable craving for bleeps and noises.

Born in 1977 to English and German parents, he has spent most of his life in England, though has never forgotten his German techno roots. Inspired by a whole range of music (from Dan Bell to Dinosaur Jr. to Ed Rush & Optical), Mark-Henning’s sound sits somewhere between house, techno and dare he say it, ‘minimal’, with a healthy dose of futuristic bleeps, funk, darkness, groove and deepness.

Mark has established himself as a player in the house & techno scene over the last couple of years, not just through his productions (on labels such as Trapez, Freude am Tanzen, Foundsound, Einmaleins, Frankie, Mo’s Ferry, Milnor Modern), but also through his European-wide performances – mixing up his own clever style of deep, yet jackin’ house and techno to get the dancefloor kicking up a sweat. His releases have found their way into the record boxes of the likes of Craig Richards, Akufen, Fumiya Tanaka, Ricardo Villalobos and Magda (who included one of Mark’s remixes on her recent Minus mix cd) – and his tracks have also achieved airplay on BBC Radio 1’s late night underground shows.

Balancing his heavy day job in London with his passion for music hasn’t been easy, but the hard work over the past few years is beginning to pay off. With a number of EPs and remixes on the way in late 2007 and a string of gigs in Spain, Russia, Germany, Denmark, Holland & Italy under his belt – Mark can finally plan towards quitting his corporate job and concentrating on his music full time. Bring it on!
