He recently supplied sample replays to Ministry of Sound, Defected, Virgin. Produced TV soundtracks for Channel 4 UK, on the late night show "Transambient". Executive producer and compilation manager for the EXOTICA series of albums, all the tracks on the compilation were mixed and/or remixed by Mark.
Maxen Cala (Nigel Evans and Hywel Evans). Biog: Many bands, projects and guitars over 2 decades have enriched Nigel Evans with a passion for creating his own style of cool. "Bid Le Bou" features his 18 month old son Hywel, to complete Maxen Cala''s sound. From a spot out in the English/Welsh countryside, Nigel has notched up many tracks, mainly for film, TV and media use. Recently providing music for TV ad campaigns and regular shows on Sky TV, Nigel is also fast becoming a highly sought-after graphic designer and digital artist.
Hardage (Rolando Bacci). Biog: Italo-American producer who produced Romina Johnson and reached n° 2 in the UK national sales chart with "Movin'' Too Fast". Remixed by Artful Dodger, it went gold selling 250,000+ copies and the biggest UK dance track of 1998. Rolando has recently worked with artists: Jocelyn Brown, Barbara Tucker, Robbie Craig, Mark King, and is currently working on movie soundtracks, chill out, and lounge music.
Pieraja'' (Pierandrea "the professor"). Biog: Stunning combination of a Portugese vocalist, singing in Spanish, recorded and produced in Italy. Pierandrea (the "professor" to his friends) has always been in the front-line of top music production in Italy. Based in Rome, he has been producing, writing and working with top 10 stars, along with huge orchestras and some of the finest musicians. "Alma De La Noche" translates into "Soul Of The Night".
Flying Camel (Giles Goodman and Shahaf Shvarzman). Biog: A cutting edge style has always been the order of the day for Flying Camel. Giles has been behind many tracks which have exploded out of underground clubs in London to reach the mainstream charts. Combined with Tel Aviv based Fuf, the duo are fast gaining a great reputation for producing conventional Israeli hit-makers from the past, giving them the exact sound to make a new audience take notice.
Umetnik / Yoko (Rick and Shue Milincic). Biog: Mixing many influences from the boogie down Bronx to Ibiza and the Balkans, adding Serbian vocals they have crafted their own unique sound. As Yoko, the pair have performed throughout Europe with a live set that either chills you to
the bone, or seduces you with their Slavic beats and pumping bass. Their home studio is based opposite Ibiza on Spain''s mainland Costa Blanca, providing Mediterranean inspiration.
Dreemtime (Klive-D, Maya Azucena). Biog: As global as it gets - Dreemtime consists of Klive (English, raised in Hong Kong), Maya (Afro-American-Spanish), produced by Mark Summers (English, 1/8th Russian). Based in New York, Dreemtime provide the ultimate musical melting-pot. Klive inputs his cool keys and lyrics, whilst Maya adds the vocal icing to an exceedingly tasty cake, and has performed in some of the best jazz and lounge bars on Broadway. Mark is currently producing the debut Dreemtime album, recorded in NYC and mixed in the beautiful surroundings of Barcelona, Spain.
Porta Mente (Mark Summers and Jon "Griff" Griffin). Biog: Both with an extensive background in engineering and production, Mark has worked for Chrysalis Music UK, recording many sessions for Kylie Minogue, X-Press 2 and Dave Lee (Joey Negro / Jakatta). Griff has a similar background; in-house engineer for Soul II Soul and some top UK R&B artists. Now both Mark and Griff run their own production companies and labels, from studios based in Barcelona and London respectively.
Nomadix / Elkin Marin. Biog: Arriving from Columbia in the early 70''s. Elkin, with his brother Nelson, established themselves on the Spanish music scene. Fusing hot Latin songs with influences from James Brown, Santana, Afro-Cuban and Jazz-Funk, success in Spain and Latin America saw many number one albums including "Jibaro". Thanks to the ''88-89 Ibiza Balearic Beat scene, DJ''s such as Paul Oakenfold and Pete Tong re-discovered "Jibaro" - which became the theme to a new dance sound, eclipsing Acid House. Elkin & Nelson also performed on some of the biggest hits with The Gibson Brothers - "Cuba", "Que Sera Mi Vida" and "Oh What A Life". Elkin is now based in Mumbai (Bollywood), India - creating a spicy mix of Latin meets Hindi. Very Exotica!
