Mark Robinson

We welcomed Mark to the Summer Soulstice fold in 2017, his presence behind the decks had been long overdue and he did not disappoint the up-for-it Club Tent crowd that day in June…

His DJ journey originally started with his weekly shows on legendary London pirate station Girls FM, then at just 19, Mark was thrown in at the deep end and made his international debut in Russia as part of a cultural exchange programme organized by the British Council.

This featured two weeks of mind blowing shows in Moscow and St Petersberg and culminating in an intimate show in a -40 degree Siberia! Mark had proved his credentials as a formidable international headliner.

At 20 he was one of the first DJs ever to play live at London Fashion Week and was subsequently asked by fashion designer Gifi Fields to join forces with him on his new digital venture, setting up and managing the groundbreaking station, Soho Live.

After three great years running the station Mark was honoured to be asked to join Mousse T and Simon Marlin (Shapeshifters) at legendary German label Peppermint Jam to head up and develop their group of labels. One of Mark’s first signings to the group was none other than Mark Knight’s Toolroom Records and he played a key role in their initial success. Other highlights include Nic Fanciulli’s first label Portent and the Soul Avengerz.

Whilst at Peppermint Jam, Mark became their international tour party resident and played alongside Mousse and other heavyweights such as Darren Emerson, Tim Deluxe, Dimitri from Paris, DJ Gregory, Martin Solveig, Bob Sinclar and others, with highlight shows in Berlin, Hong Kong, London and Belfast.

After leaving Peppermint Jam, Mark left to set up his own consultancy business and his first project was with London clubbing brand Kinky Malinki. Tasked with compiling and mixing their new series of albums, he helped set up a series of successful compilation albums and was soon their main resident DJ touring the world at over 50 events.

After Kinky Malinki, Mark moved to Pukka Up, the already famous Ibiza Boat Party brand, to become a director and create their new label group and management company. Still at the helm, Mark plays every summer in Ibiza and all around the world and has just returned from China in 2019. He heads up a group of six successful labels and manages Pukka Up’s DJ roster.

A man of many talents, Mark is also one third of The Str8jackets, London based vocal house trio alongside Dave Longmore and Phil Fearon. They’ve released singles with Inaya Day, Tyree Cooper, Dawn Tallman and remixed artists such as Kim English.

To celebrate his 20 years in the booth, Mark headed out on a world tour in 2017, performing 20 shows as part of the #MR20 Tour which included Summer Soulstice, the latter of which he has been a part of since.
