Nu-Mark began DJing as a teenager in Los Angeles. Over the course of the last two decades, he has amassed a collection of over 35,000 records and refined his technical skills and performance style to the point where he is widely recognized as one of the key figures in the late-90s DJ explosion which pushed the DJ to the front of the culture’s awareness. As a result of this distinction, Nu-Mark has been featured in a diversity of publications and in several films: the critically acclaimed documentary “Scratch,” “KeepinTime” (which features impromptu collaborations with Mad Lib, Cut-Chemist, Babu, J-Rocc, and drummers James Gatson and Paul Humphrey), “Coachella: The Movie,” and “Rock the Bells – The Documentary.”
Recognized for his membership in the gold selling group Jurassic 5, Nu-Mark is best known for his production on the raw anthem “What’s Golden” and the smooth and soulful “Work It Out,” featuring Dave Matthews. Nu-Mark is responsible for half of the production of Jurassic 5’s entire body of work an has appeared alongside many of music’s greats, including A Tribe Called Quest, the Wu-Tang Clan, Outkast, The Roots, Run DMC, Green Day, and even Bruce Springsteen.
Nu-Mark has also released his own projects: Blend Crafters, an instrumental album created in the spirit of allowing beats to speak for themselves, and Hands On, a mix-CD. Today, Nu-Mark is well-known for his innovative plays on sound – attaching a rubber band to his turntable’s needle and playing it like an upright bass or tapping on the turntable’s dust cover to simulate a bass drum. Incorporating a wide range of musical styles – soul, funk, hip-hop, and samba effortlessly blended together – Nu-Mark revels in surprising an audience with a forgotten gem, an unknown banger, or a fresh take on a well-known hit. From Sao Paolo to Sydney, from Toronto to Tokyo, Nu-Mark’s carefully crafted, explosively energetic DJ sets never fail to get a party rocking.
