Equal parts composer, jazz pianist, found-sound remixer and club music producer, he tours his uniquely curated live show to festivals and clubs worldwide.
Mark recently released his 16th album and has produced hundreds of collaborations and remixes creating with musicians, artists and DJs from all around the world. Mark has collaborated with a Who’s Who of global music including jazz masters Kamasi Washington, Eric Harland, Chris Dave, Harvey Mason and Miguel Atwood-Ferguson; soulful club legends including Kenny Dope, Jody Watley, DJ Spinna and Omar; remixed the likes of Chico Hamilton, Shirley Horn and the Blue Note Records catalogue. His critically acclaimed club night CHURCH sees him creating live on stage with multiple generations of the world’s most respected jazz, soul and hip hop artists, and his latest project ‘HERITAGE' see him doing a deep dive into his Japanese heritage and roots, interpreting it through the lens of jazz and electronica.
Mark brings HERITAGE to NZ with guests Myele Manzanza (drums) and Marika Hodgson (bass) joining him with his piano at the heart and centre of a mind-boggling configuration of technology and toys.
