Who? Mark Radford, Rinse FM's number one champion of quality house music.
Why? Mark is London's hardest working, and most underrated, underground house DJ. At the weekend he plays non-stop from Friday night through to Monday morning, taking in peak-time sets as well as early morning afterparty slots. The man doesn't seem to sleep, just take one look at his gig schedule. It's unreal. When Mark's not heating up clubs, he's working on his Audio Rehab label or broadcasting from his Saturday night slot on Rinse FM. In fact, it was his mix CD for Rinse FM earlier this year that put him on Mixmag's radar; he turned in a selection of cold, techy, rolling house cuts that put our whole office into meltdown. Add to that the talent he's assembled for his label and you've got a certified contender for Mix Of The Week. Mark's turned in an hour of tunes signed to Audio Rehab and it's a great showcase of the icy, funk-filled sound he's currently championing.
Where? Mark Radford hosts Audio Rehab at Fire on Saturday December 15 alongside James What, Adam Cotier and more.
