Modern day record minstrel, Mark Farina, has thrilled crowds globally, entertaining
over 1 million fans per year. As one of the most ubiquitous DJs in Dance Music,
Farina's known for both his unique style of mixing Jazz, Downtempo and House
Music as well as being the creator of Mushroom Jazz: West Coast jazzy, organic
productions combined with East Coast Hip-Hop, Urban beats.
Drawing from his vibrant youth, which included being a trumpet player in marching
band, a drummer in a nu wave cover band and a guest DJ, Friday nights on WNUR
(Chicago), Mark found his passion for the luscious world of vinyl, turntables and
nightclubs. At 16, Farina began his DJ career as a resident at Chicago's underage
mecca, Medusa's. At the same time Mark joined forces with emerging DJs Derrick
Carter and Chris Nazuka then moved into a loft space called Rednail.
Rednail became infamous not only for raucous parties but also as the home to the
trio's first productions under the moniker, Symbols & Instruments. Their
release,"MOOD," sold 35,000 copies in the US & UK and is credited as "the first
ambient house track."
Farina relocated to San Francisco in 1992. Fans embraced Mark's downtempo style
and he started co-hosting a weekly Mushroom Jazz club night in ʻ93. In 3 short
years, Farina established a fanatical, cult-like following for his Mushroom Jazz sound
and in 1996, OM Records released the first mixed comp CD, simply
titled, Mushroom Jazz. Since then, Mark has released 7 volumes of Mushroom Jazz
with 2013 marking the 20th anniversary of the series. Other notable releases include
OMʼs Seasons, San Francisco Sessions Vol. 1, Connect, House of Om, Live in
Tokyo, and Fabric 40.
When Mark's not touring the world, headlining festivals including Harbourlife
(Sydney), Southport Weekender (UK), DEMF (Detroit), Coachella (CA) and T in
the Park (Scotland), you're likely to find him in his studio working on new releases
or podcasts for his label, Great Lakes Audio. On days off he'll be cruising his '68
Toronado with his son, Dylan (aka "little peanut"), and his Yorkie, Pumpkin.
Voted as one of the top DJ's in the world by URB, MUZIK and BPM magazines, Mark
Farina's taste making skills continue to turn the heads of seasoned Dance Music
veterans as well as newcomers to the scene.
