DJ Nu-Mark in tha House!
For well over ten years, DJ Nu-Mark has been among Hip-Hop’s most respected DJs and producers. Recognized for his membership in the gold selling group Jurassic 5, Nu-Mark is best known for his production on the raw anthem “What’s Golden” and the smooth and soulful “Work It Out,” featuring Dave Matthews. Additionally, his innovative DJ routines and creative on-stage antics have made him a favorite of crowds all over the world.
Perhaps best known for their thrilling stage show, Jurassic 5 has toured the globe several times over, and have made numerous television appearances. With Jurassic 5, Nu-Mark has performed at many of the world’s most important and exciting music festivals – Coachella, Bonnaroo, Lollapalooza 2003, Australia’s Big Day Out, The UK’s Reading Festival, and Japan’s Summer Sonic – where his mastery of a complex, six-piece DJ rig and his playful incorporation of children’s musical toys have amazed and delighted crowds of up to 50,000 fans. Jurassic 5 has appeared alongside many of music’s greats, including A Tribe Called Quest, the Wu-Tang Clan, Outkast, The Roots, Run DMC, Green Day, and even Bruce Springsteen.
Nu-Mark is responsible for half of the production of Jurassic 5’s entire body of work: Jurassic 5 EP (1997), Quality Control (2000), Power In Numbers (2002), and Feedback (2006). He has also released his own projects, independent of the group: Blend Crafters, an instrumental album created in the spirit of allowing beats to speak for themselves, and Hands On, a mix-CD. Hands On assembles a diverse and eclectic set of sounds, everything from soulful breaks to comedic skits, as well as classic underground jams, and includes a special section devoted to hip-hop from around the world. By turns hilarious and impressive, this project displays both Nu-Mark’s eccentric sense of humor and his devotion to solid, simply dope music. Currently, Nu-Mark is placing his beats on a number of projects in a variety of genres.
