Mark Seven kicks the doors wide open on this joint! Psyched to have this cult DJ/producer in the house for the first release on World Building. Both sides of the wax are guaranteed to stimulate your body, your mind & your soul. Let us guide you thru the ultimate dance experience!
Mark flexes the serious house muscles on these tunes. Two sides of massive DJ-ready club killers!
Classic chords, tough basslines, hype sax riffs, swangin’ drums, strong vocals, multiple mixes (including a saxapella!) … we know what you need. Thanks for checking out the first 12” on World Building.

RIP Soundcloud Groups

Most of them were pure spam, but I'm proud of the DBJ group. I even discovered a few new producers and found some tracks to play out through it. Anyway, now is your last chance to take a look - Soundcloud groups are being removed on August 22nd.

Celebrate 8/08

Decided to put together a little treat for my fellow gear enthusiast/producer types. It's samples of all my TR-808's drum voices as well as 30 sample patterns ranging from 80bpm all the way up to 130-something. Some dry, some with effects, some busy, some simple. Classic electro rap beats, Italo, janky wind-tunnel techno, WBMX-style house, etc. Anybody can use these patterns for whatever they want, no credit necessary.
Download the samples here.
