Nu-Mark began DJing at the age of 13 in Los Angeles. Over the course of the last two decades, he has amassed a collection of over 35,000 records and refined his production skills and performance to the point where he is widely recognized as one of the key figures in DJ culture.
As a member of the critically acclaimed, gold-selling Hip-Hop outfit, Jurassic 5, DJ Nu-Mark graced the group with precision production and cutting edge stage routines. Best known for his production on the raw anthem “What’s Golden” such creativity only hinted at the visionary creativity Nu-Mark has explored since Jurassic 5’s breakup in 2006.
To date, Nu-Mark has been featured in the critically acclaimed documentaries “Scratch”, “KeepinTime”, “Coachella: The Movie,” “Rock the Bells – The Documentary” and most recently in Mac Grubber. He’s also appeared on countless TV Shows with J5, including David Letterman, Conan O’Brien, Jimmy Kimmel and Craig Ferguson.
Motion Potion (aka Robbie Kowal) is one of America’s most versatile, experienced and flat-out joyous party rockers. His decade long mission is to ‘put the party back into the party’, and to connect the casual music fan with the hard core dance music mavens; proving that music is more than just beats. He calls his style “funklectic dancefloor nostalgism” .
A mix that myself and the homie DJ Eleven put together a few years back, choc full of guilty pleasures from the 80s and 90s.
