From a stu­dio in Dun­boyne, Co. Meath, tracks have made their way into the playlists of Carl Cox amongst oth­ers. Hot Press caught up with Mark Greene to dis­cuss.

What have you been up to for the past 12 months?

I have been re­ally fo­cus­ing on my monthly ra­dio show ‘Progress Ra­dio’. The show is now broad­cast on over 30 sta­tions in coun­tries like Ar­gentina, Ger­many and Rus­sia. On the gig front, last year I got to play in Poland for the first time which was amaz­ing and a cool fes­ti­val in Ger­many called Ruhr In Love.

What re­leases did you put out last year?

I had re­leases on Spek­tre’s Re­spekt Record­ings, both of A.Paul’s la­bels; Naked Lunch and sub­la­bel Onh.Cet. Later in the year I had a slightly harder re­lease on Tech­burst Records and an orig­i­nal track on the Re­ne­sanz Records. I al­ways like to give away some free tracks ev­ery now and again and my re­cent track ‘Rat­tle’ was fea­tured on XLR8R and Danc­ing As­tro­naut.

What do you have com­ing out in 2017?

In March I have a four-track EP com­ing out on Steve Mul­der’s Am­s­ter­dam-based la­bel Or­ange Record­ings. I usu­ally send any tracks I make to Carl Cox the minute I have them mas­tered. This re­lease in par­tic­u­lar re­ally seemed to hit a chord with him as he played three of the four tracks for a num­ber of weeks in his fi­nal sea­son at Space Ibiza. I have two tracks com­ing out on Ser­bian la­bel Tauten with a remix from Jonno Brien in April and then a three-track EP signed to Os­car Aguil­era’s HE-ART Record­ings for re­lease in May.

What gigs do you have com­ing up?

In March I am off to Graz in Aus­tria to play in a cool look­ing club called ‘Bunker’ for a pro­moter called Atomic. Then later in Au­gust, I am booked to play at Kon­trast Fes­ti­val in Borken, Ger­many along­side the likes of Slam, Gary Beck, Karotte and Felix Kröcher. I love Ger­many and the guys at Akzent Book­ings who are bring­ing me over are a great laugh so I am re­ally look­ing for­ward to that one.

Whats your cur­rent stu­dio set up?

My cur­rent set up is very ba­sic. I use Logic Pro, Na­tive In­stru­ments Mas­chine and a newly ac­quired Roland TR-8 all run­ning through the Fo­cus­rite Safire au­dio in­ter­face.
