Tyler has emerged as a significant influence on the hard dance
music scene as a DJ and producer able to play within, and bridge,
more than one style.
Here's some of his story . . .
Mark Tyler is one of a rare breed of DJs who plays and produces both
banging hardhouse and avin it trance and techno. His two labels
release tunes produced specifically for use in either separate sets
of each style or for near legendary sets that take the crowd from
underground hardhouse into techno & trance without them blinking
Although he is still better known for his explosive avin it
London techno sets, Mark is now getting the worldwide recognition
he deserves for his purely hardhouse outings and especially his fusion
of the two styles when the time is right. As his talents get noticed,
Marks unwavering passion for his labels has become obvious as
the quality productions he has been pioneering, often grace the playlists
of both Judge Jules and John Peel, two Radio One DJs
with quite different styles.
Mark originally started DJing with hard trance in early 1995, finding
it easy to play either side of that genre, with what little hard house
was available at that time, and on into London techno. At the time,
the difference between them may have seemed cavernous, but as Mark
started producing music in 1998, he soon realised that he was able
to draw on his love of all those styles and pull them closer together.
By following his roots, Mark produced his own sound and therefore
intentionally created an enviable and highly supported following among
hard house, trance and techno lovers. This has been further emphasised
by fellow hard house and techno DJ, Dave Randall, as he described
Marks first label, No Entry, as the only label
in the country to be producing this style of music.
July 1999 saw him Djing on a major tour with Jon The Dentist, Chris
Liberator and Americas top trance DJ, Christopher Lawrence,
stretching from the western most prairies of Canada down to Floridas
March 2000 brought the Wax tour alongside Mark EG and
Rowland The Bastard and included Edmonton, Winnipeg, Regina
and Saskatoon in Canada.
No Entrys label launch tour in April and May 2000 included UK
dates in Manchester, Sheffield, Norwich and Bristol as well as Montreal
and Quebec in Canada and Helsinki in Finland. On that tour,
Mark headlined alongside Lab 4 and K90, had his own
No Entry room in Finland, was interviewed for various magazines and
websites plus filmed for Finnish cable channel, Moon TV. To
top it all, in the first week of the tour, both Judge Jules and John
Peel played Marks first release on No Entry and went on to support
the next releases as they came.
The launch of Marks second label, Re-Entry, provided
his largest tour to date, covering four continents over four months.
Vancouver and Montreal supplied the gigs on each coast of Canada before
heading down under for a 10 date tour of New Zealand (Auckland, Wellington,
Christchurch, Queenstown) and Australia (Melbourne (3), Sydney (2)
and Brisbane). During his month down under, Mark did numerous radio
and magazine interviews, a Sky TV interview, was filmed for a club
night video and hosted a three hour radio show on a local station
in Auckland whilst standing in for one of New Zealands top DJs,
OB1. This was followed by a special gig in Tokyo alongside Japans
most prolific hard house DJ and producer, Yoji Biomehanika
and also punctuated by a string of UK dates around the country.
The start of 2001 brought more good news for the labels as Ian
M chose Re-Entry 2 (Chris Todds Maniak A-Takk)
and Re-Entry 3 (Mark Tyler The City [Mark Tyler vs Dynamic Intervention
Remix]) to be included on his latest mix CD, none other than the 10000+
selling Trade compilation. Also, No Entry, was finally released from
months of time wasting by its original distributor and moved to Infectious
to start releasing again.
With so much work going into the labels, it became apparent that Mark
would have to play abroad less and 2001 saw a concerted and successful
effort to concentrate on the UK circuit more. Described by people
in UK and many foreign countries as their favourite producer, Marks
friendly, down to earth personality and strong, confident mixing has
earned him fans as a DJ. Its clear why he receives direct enquiries
from countries he hasnt yet played such as Brazil, Peru and
Venezuala as the word spreads about his labels and Djing.
Marks production has also gained him respect from many of his
fellow DJs; its not unusual to see a wide range of different
DJs playing his tracks, from Ian M & Andy Farley
to Chris Liberator & Mark EG, not to mention his
double figures of Radio One plays as well. His remix work
includes two separate K90 remixes, the first being used as the opening
track on Channel 4 late night programme, The Tripand the
latest one being released on Eve Records sub label, Telica.
Not a stranger to receiving singles of the month for many of his releases
(including no less than six for the OD404 remixed London,
Lets Ave Yer!, numerous licenses and a hype
chart position of 19), his production style on No Entry (alongside
production partner Guy McAffer) has seen London techno become
more accessible to other types of DJs as the hardhouse and trance
influenced breakdowns and sounds emerge from the kicking 4/4 beats.
That is why Mark launched Re-Entry, the sister remix label
to No Entry, as a hardhouse and techno label, with a track of each
style on either side on every release. The first label of its kind,
possibly? As well as working with Mik Cree from Dynamic Intervention
on new hard house tracks, it also led to a couple of collaborations
with Nukleuzs Nick Sentience on their new purple range.
With two successful record labels and a growing number of promoters
giving Mark numerous re-bookings, the future is looking extremely
bright for this interesting, and influential DJ/producer.
