October 19, 2012

Who: DJ Nu-Mark
Born and lives today: Los Angeles, CA
What he does: Producer / DJ

DJ Nu-Mark profile for The WILD magazine

What he is  currently working on:
My debut Album Broken Sunlight. My latest single features Quantic on a song called “Tropicalifornia.” I’m also working on production for Slimkid3 from Pharcyde and creating beats for a movie on Sony Pictures called Battle Of The Year.

What good energy mean to him:
Consciously surrounding myself with positive people. This usually helps me grow and try things I normally wouldn’t.

What he thinks there is too much of, and too little of:
Too many DJ’s that hopped into the game because of the ease and portability of it since it’s now based on a lap top. Too little of black bands signed to major labels… I can only think of one… The Roots?

With whom he would like most to go on a “ tête à tête”:
Never heard of it but it sounds like something my girlfriend and I could possibly be comfortable with.

On his life-to-do list:
Establish peace of mind, create meaningful music, help my family as much as I can and continue to try my hardest.

His most striking moment:
Entering a drum battle at 12 years-old, then battling in the school auditorium in front of the entire school against a guy twice my size. This was the first moment where I built confidence, before that I was a shy introvert.

His earliest memory:
Goin to Iran at 4 years old and meeting my Grandfather. I remember he bought me a Kit Kat on the streets of Tehran.

The WILDEST situation he has ever experienced:
Probably performing in front of 15,000 people with Jurassic 5 in Belgium in 1998. Before the show I had no idea that they even knew our music out there… came as quite the pleasant surprise.

What he can’t live without:
Making Beats, Mint Tea, Interacting with musicians and Korean BBQ.

With whom he would like to grow old:
My girlfriend Karla.

His next challenge:
To get through 2013’s crazy tour schedule. Also completing the music for Sony’s “Battle Of The Year.”

His Hero:
Personally my Mother; professionally Clyde Stubblefield (James Brown’s Drummer).

DJ Nu-Mark’s WILD Wish:
DJ’n on a wing of an airplane while the sound is pumped through the speakers on board the flight so the passengers can enjoy.
