As London's dance music scene seems to shift ever more to deeper sounds of Tech and Deep House, Mark Radford's music finds the balance of bass, energy and melody. He began pioneering his sound in 2008, after being frustrated by the lack of soul in the House music scene and after a little resistance, soon found people travelling across London to see his DJ sets.
Rinse 18, personifies Mark's sound perfectly and proves just how far he's come in a short space of time. "It’s definitely a true representation of my sound, a sound that I’ve worked hard to create, to be different" says Mark.
Clearly pround of his work, the album showcases sounds from well known European producers and some of the UK's newer names like A1 Bassline.
