I caught up with Mark in London at the legendary Dean St. Studios. They were kind enough to let us use a room for our interview. Mark is the founder of Wall of Sound records, which has been an influential dance music label for almost 25 years, bringing us music from Basement Jaxx, Propellerheads, Royksopp, among many others. Mark also hosts the Back to the Phuture radio show on Soho Radio and the Question Mark live interview series. I lost control of the interview almost instantly, and Mark took us down a number of rabbit holes — SGI Buddhism (he even does some chanting for us) to his beef with Simon Cowell. At the end of the show, he puts on a clown mask and shows me a card trick he uses at parties. We also get some amazing lessons about creativity and how always to be yourself. It’s nuts.
