MARK ASH
Croatian DJ & producer

started to show interest in music from an early age and it was only a matter of time till he started mixing different records he had been collecting, on a pair of decks he had at the age of 11. His DJ career started in a small club, on Island of Rab back in 1996. At same time he had his own radio music show on a local station called Arbassential, where he hosted many local DJ's and producers. As he moved to Rijeka, he holded residencies in all of Rijeka's most famous clubs. Helped out a lot in development of electronic music scene
in his town through some very well listened radio shows on Rijeka's local Radio stations. Founded the first Specialized Record Shop for DJ's in Rijeka called Muzikum Record Store, where he raised lots of upcoming DJ's providing them with the best music on market. As a part of BalanceFM project he proves his constant progression and effort for the dance music scene in Croatia. Mark Ash played on all major dance music events in Croatia, Slovenia, Italy & Germany: Rabac Summer Festival in Croatia, few major events at Ambasada Gavioli in Slovenia, MTV Carnival Party in Rijeka, "Exotica", "Bedrock OS 0.1" Tour in Croatia
( w/Desyn Masiello ), Yoshitoshi's "In House We Trust" 2, 3 & 4 Tours in Croatia, Climax Institutes in Stuttgart, Lucky Strike's Festival Der Sine, Love Academy's Ladies Night also in Stuttgart just to name a few among many other big events. Mark had been asked to perform in a few fashion shows organized by young talented Croatian designers and also took part on "Red Bull" summer tour, taking him on coastal beaches around Rijeka-Croatia. As far he showcased his dj skills on "Alpe Adria Film Festival" at Teatro Miele - Italy. He has also succeeded to make a good reputation for himself in many clubs, playing along some of the world's most famous DJ's and Producers ( the list is very long ). His musical style moves from deep jazzy and groovy elements over disco and funky to techy and proggy house sounds, but as Mark says: " It has to tickle your SOUL ". Mark's passion and respect to music makes him a DJ to watch out for. He always stands out when he plays, mixing old, new and refreshing records and showing his ability to make any crowd dance to his sounds. His discography just started to grow, receiving a major support from the World's DJ scene. The great success of "Girl With A Smile" track in colaboration with Patrick Zigon, put him on charts and sets of every major DJ on the globe. Watch out, cause next year could be a good jump off ! In his free time he is editing lots of music, making them to suite his taste and style. Collecting music and movies makes him a real media junkie who's collection spands over few thousands of various titles. Mark Ash is a name to watch out for in the near future...!         ⇒ PRESS KIT
