Mark Alsop MA15+ to play Party for the first time in 2016!
Mark Alsop MA15+ has been a strong and sustained force in Australia’s dance party culture since 1984.
From underground warehouse parties and nightclubs to interstate and International events, he has helped shape Australia’s dance party culture, and remains in the forefront of this dynamic environment. From its humble beginnings to the richness of today's party and clubbing culture, his style and adaptability have enabled him to continue to impress diverse crowds over the past 31 years.
His Early achievements include Best DJ awards from The Sydney Star Observer (1989 and 1990) and CAPS Best DJ Award (1990). More recently, he has been recognised at “The 80’s are Back” exhibition at the Powerhouse Museum, is listed as a “pioneering DJ” on the RAT parties entry on Wikipedia, and is named as “one of the world’s best remixers and deejays” on the German website hotdiscomix.com.
Mark is very proud to have been nominated for a 2010 Honour Award under the category of Media/Arts/Entertainment and to have been re-nominated and won the following year. Winning the 2011 Honour Award acknowledges outstanding service to, or achievement within, the NSW gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender (GLBT) community.
Behind the scenes, Mark ensures set continuity by reworking, restructuring and re-editing much of this music in the studio, making his sound quite original, stimulating and particularly inspirational!
Mardi Gras is thrilled to welcome Mark to the Party in 2016.
