Mark Seven: Re:Loved – Parkway Mastermix Vol 1
In honour of him gracing these shores this Friday @ Big Wave we're making today Mark Seven Day on the site. Details of which are here.
To celebrate Mark's gifted us 3, yes 3 whole mixes from yesteryear… which we're revisiting through today.
The second one PARKWAY Mastermix Vol 1 – the one you have in your ears right here – has also gained legendary status amongst heads and diggers.
"Dear Radio Programmer,
This special one hour 'MASTERMIX' show has been carefully prepared for broadcast. The show features a selection of music that inspired the sound of PARKWAY RECORDS"
Hour long promo mix Cd pack with plenty of post-production & edits"
Mark's very kindly allowed us to dust it off and can share it you again… so here it is, in all its glory!
Producing and running labels since the early 90's, the now Stockholm based Mark Seven has been releasing some rather fine records on his Parkway imprint of late. Parkway is a label inspired by the sounds Mark first fell in love with that emerged from the explosion of creativity that occurred post-Disco, when electronics became more affordable and when the music moved back underground, with names like Paul Simpson, Winston Jones and Boyd Jarvis, Emergency, Streetwise and Easy Street. Records with Herb "The Pump" Powers and exclusive edits and remixes of rare Black music releases of the 1980's. Unsung tracks that fed into a sound that became House. A history that, without people like Mark, would have already been forgotten
