Los Angeles-based, Mark Bell, aka Blakkat, has moved through the music world applying his golden touch to many surfaces, from a life with the major labels as an original member of multi-platinum selling Mercury Prize winners, M People, to the finest in underground house when he produced the massive “Tweek & Roll” with Josh Wink – or as a featured vocalist for King Britt’s Sylk 130 and Funk D’ Void.
It is Mark’s ability to turn in classically influenced modern house that distinguishes a Blakkat jam, whether it be raw Chicago acid or smooth New York deepness. The timeless quality of his work is in his DJ sets referencing the past 25 years of house music with a modern, infectious twist. Mark continues to push the envelope by working with artists and restructuring their sound that is unique and specific to them while keeping true to his dance roots.
Currently working on new studio projects with Douglas McCarthy of Nitzer Ebb, H Foundation, Leigh de Vries, Doc Martin, DJ Sneak, King Britt, (a)pendice.shuffle and the Godfather of main stage EDM Felix.
