Mark Ramsey aka Mark D FunKtion was born in South East London, from an early age he absorbed a multiple diet of music such as Ska and Soca from his mother and his brothers extensive collection of rare groove, hip hop, Chicago, Acid and Detroit house. At the early age of 14 he would play a mixture of soul, Hip-hop and Jungle at house and college parties. Mark was driven more towards the underground sound and would find himself every weekend hanging out at his local record shops in London.
In the late 90's Mark landed slots on multiple radio stations across London and gained a following playing UK Garage each week to a mass audience across the UK.
In 2000 Mark decided to learn music production at the British Academy of New Music (East London) and naturally found himself drawn to Minimal and Techno which he was more in tune to because of the percussive and raw bass driven elements.
He has released before on Area Remote with Webby, but has now produced his first ever solo EP for us, with a strong groove and candid sound, that is extremely DJ-friendly.
CALL ME FLISS: With this beautifully layered track with a groovy bassline and perfect percussions, you can clearly distinguish Mark D FunKtions eclectic musical background. A jackin house track that is ideal for the afterhours.
NINA'S GROOVE: A mysterious vibe is set from the beginning through the extensive use of percussions and seductive female vocals. Ninas Groove is delicious and has an effective functionality.
