An instinct is something you don’t need to learn — it happens naturally, without you even thinking about it. Babies cry by instinct, ducks follow their mother by instinct, and we rage our hearts out when we hear Mark Instinct. Last time Mark Instinct came to the Mousetrap his performance was outstanding, sad part is not many got to witness it due to a horrible snowstorm. As of now, the weather is stating a high of 54 and low of 50. Safe to say that won’t be the case this time. Locals on the scene will be Indigo Child, jFet, and Cam Miller. Be where you naturally should be this Thurzday.
A self proclaimed space gypsy and professional button pusher, Mark Instinct is a heavy hitter in the international bass circuit. Known for his raw energy and filthy basslines, Mark has become well-established amongst the bass music elite.
Beginning to experiment with electronic music production at an early age, the Canadian native quickly fell into his niche and chiseled out a distinctively grimey style. Gaining early recognition and bookings alongside some of bass musics heavy hitters, Mark Instinct’s reputation for precision production skills and unadulterated sounds began to spread.
Releasing tracks through Excision’s Rottun Recordings, Reid Speed’s PlayMe, Datsik’s Firepower Records and Dieseboy’s SubHuman label, Mark Instinct has successfully held down spots on Beatport’s Top 10 charts. These bass-heavy chart toppers have ensured Mark’s world-wide recognition as a hard hitting bass producer.
More than a reckoning force in the studio, Mark has proven himself a powerhouse behind the decks. Destroying dance floors with his earth-shattering and explosive stage performances, Mark Instinct leaves fans craving more. Appearing internationally alongside some of dubstep’s biggest names, Mark has played at Miami’s Winter Music Conference and is a fixture at the renowned Shambhala Music Festival.
Hailing from Pennsylvania, Rob S. a.k.a. Indigo Child grew up being encouraged to produce his own sound. Starting early, he was a classically trained violinist in his youth. Then he turned to bass guitar for a little more emotion and found himself experimenting with different sounds. He eventually discovered dubstep and that was the beginning of his idea for Indigo Child.
Now a member of IndyMojo and G-9 Collective, we have seen him rise up as one of the main dubstep contenders in a talent filled group of DJs. He has played with the likes of Zomboy, Datsik, Bro Safari, Delta Heavy, Caspa, Savoy, Downlink, Vaski, Terravita, Figure, Reid Speed, and many more. In the past two years he has been producing his own tracks and honing in on his own sound. More recently he has caught the attention of New Zealand natives TRUTH, who just dropped one of his tracks on their new label Deep, Dark, Dangerous. Check out this brand new video premiering his new track and documenting what he has done over the course of the past.
The jFET Project began in early 2011 by Producer / DJ “Jangatha.” After over 50 house music releases on some of the most respected labels in both digital and vinyl format, the need to seek fresh sounds was instilled and inspired by the edgy bass music arena. The focus is rather simple, to push fresh hype sounds in any BPM it fits best. jFET’s sounds have been catching on quick. His debut EP reached #15 on the Beatport Dubstep Release charts, and caught the attention of several respected blogs including The Untz. 2012 included a release from Play Me Records as part of the New Blood of Dubstep. With support from international touring acts such as Figure, Ajapai, and Reid Speed, we will likely be hearing much more to come from this eclectic project. jFET: Intergalactic Hitman / Producer / Performer.
