A Colourful Storm is a record label with a distinct, unique identity which has acted as an outlet for all sorts of weird and wonderful music over many years.
Founded in 2016, by Moopie, the imprint is singular and notoriously difficult to pigeon hole. One week it might be releasing bleak drone noise, the next IDM, then on to rugged jungle breaks and beyond. It is no two things, yet at the same time, everything.
Mark is one of the stalwarts of the label and its legacy, he has appeared on numerous occasions having released several EP's. The success of his initial outings on the label lead him onwards to record and release music with Unterton, the off centre label run by parent label Ostgut Ton. However, this year marked his return to A Colourful Storm, releasing music alongside Christoph de Babalon. A jungle inspired EP which runs rampant, drawing influence from an endless sprawl of soundscapes, samples, skits and beyond.
We invited Moopie to talk us through Mark's intrepid journey in sound and space.
