Mark Farina Announces Sessions CD, Tour Dates

Ministry Of Sound has announced Sessions – Mark Farina’s first ever mix album for the pioneering UK label.

Farina joins Josh Wink, Steve Angello and others that have released Sessions CDs. One of America’s most revered DJs, Mark pulls out the stops for this one, with nearly 40 tracks of house madness.

Mark Farina has been a figurehead of the US house scene for over 15 years, first cutting his teeth in the now legendary Chicago/Detroit scene in the late eighties. Working closely with such luminaries as Derrick Carter, Kevin Saunderson and Chris Nazuka, Mark utilized his tight connections and signed to KMS Records in ’89 under the Symbols & Instruments moniker and produced a landmark track called Mood.

Farina’s Sessions is described as “a master class in mixing, seamlessly taking the mix up and down, combining deep vocals with rolling drum rhythms and upfront electronics, but maintaining a classic house backbone.”

Mark will be doing a full world-tour to promote this release, which sees him stopping off in Europe, Australia, Asia and the US.
