Ruby’s Bar based at the old Bellinis site in Chapel Street, Luton, is proud to announce a night featuring top DJ /producer Mark Radford on Bank Holiday Friday, May 27, from 10pm til 4am.

Here’s a bit about Mark (pictured). He was born in the sleepy market town of Bishops Stortford and growing up in Harlow, Mark Radford’s story will speak to many aspiring producers and DJs wanting to break into the beating heart of London’s electronic music scene.

Mark’s history stretches back to the early days of acid house, rave and jungle and he counts DJs like Randall, Grooverider and Jumping Jack Frost at the forefront of his musical stimuli.

“Watching these guys create a new genre of music was amazing,” he explains, alluding to their experiments in music and willingness to push new boundaries, exposing the public to a dearth of home-grown talent as a great inspiration to him.

Not only does Mark run one of the hottest labels around, he has garnered a reputation as one of London’s most cutting edge selectors and an accomplished producer in his own right.

Working with vocalists and expanding his musical horizons has become a point of focus for Mark over the past few years, and listeners to his Rinse FM slot will undoubtedly have noticed how many new and unfinished tracks and collaborations he drops; almost always with the cheeky line “It’s nowhere near finished, but I thought I’d drop it anyway.”

Pop along to Ruby’s Bar this Friday, May 26, I think you will enjoy Mark’s two-hour set.
