Scotland has long been a leader in producing pioneers of electronic dance music, but often flies under the radar in its
contributions to the scene. Until now. As Scottish techtrance maestro Mark Sherry’s star continues to rise, the DJ and
producer is being recognized as a dedicated and enthusiastic presence in the industry, with original productions and remixes on Spinnin, Armada, Lange Recordings & Anjunabeats. His inexorable passion and drive for his craft is evident in his diverse and wellrounded collaborations and full body of work, both in the studio as well as his vivid and technical DJ performances spanning the globe.
One by one, the top dance music labels in the industry have noticed Mark’s ability to generate high quality productions, and in 2011 Spinnin’ Records had signed him on for an exclusive twoyear contract. With huge support from the mega label, he released his remake of the Last of the Mohicans theme and Clannad classic ‘I Will Find You’ featuring vocalist Sharone, who Mark later teamed up with again to orchestrate ‘Silent Tears’ and a LatinAmerican themed track titled ‘Sangre Caliente.’ The following months saw more Beatport charttopping compositions from his remixes of ‘Morph’ by Ali Wilson & Matt Smallwood on Doorn Records and ‘Yeke Yeke’ by African artist Mory Kante, and another Beatport Trance No. 1 for his take on trance legend Lange’s single ‘Songless.’ The Scot continued to make a name for himself in 2012 with yet another Beatport Top 10 for his stellar single ‘My Love’ on Simon Patterson’s Night Vision label.
In 2014, Mark has kept up with his busy schedule both in and out of the studio. By March he unveiled his well supported remix of Max Graham’s ‘The Evil ID,’ which quickly shot straight to Beatport’s Trance Top 10. Now with massive upcoming tour dates at events like Together Festival, Luminosity Beach Party, Electrocity Presents FSOE 350, and 420 Festival, and upcoming remixes of Giuseppe Ottaviani & Aly & Fila, Will Atkinson and Heatbeat, there appears to be no signs of slowing down for this genrebending artist.
