DJ Producer Mark Sixma was born in the Netherlands in ‘83. Being raised in Breda, hometown of DJ Tiesto, it was only a matter of time till he caught the trance virus. After mastering the art of DJ’ing at high school parties and in local club “De Spock”, Mark got interested in producing music as well.
With a helping hand from his friend Paul Moelands (aka Re:locate) he started to produce his first trance tracks. His background in classical piano music proved to be a great benefit here. It wasn’t until graduation year at the University of Tilburg that Mark started to put more time and effort into producing and soon after his first release was a fact. After hearing his music, record label Basic Beat signed ‘Freak Electrique’ and ‘Techmatic’. ‘Freak Electrique ‘ was also featured on Riley and Durrant’s mix compilation ‘a Quest For Trance 2′. That’s where the ball got rolling!
After releasing a collaboration with Def Tactical and a Project 6 E.P at Five AM Records it was time for the next M6 release called ‘Destination 6’. It was chosen “Tune of the Week” on Armin van Buuren’s radioshow ‘A State Of Trance’ and got supported by the biggest names on the planet! From that point on a lot of doors were opened for Mark. The next M6 single was signed at Armada. ‘Fade 2 Black’ was, once again, selected ‘Tune of the Week’ on ASOT. An incredible accomplishment in such a short period of time. It’s safe to say that Mark is one of the fastest rising stars in trance music.
Mark’s tracks are now being released on Armada, Blackhole Recordings and Fektive and have been played by top jocks like Tiesto, Ferry Corsten, Armin van Buuren, Paul van Dyk, Judge Jules, Gareth Emery, Markus Schulz, and many many more. He’s also done remixes for producers like Mike Foyle, Re:locate and W&W. And the requests keep coming in by the dozen.
While he’s spending a lot of time in the studio, Mark also hosts his monthly radio show ‘Solid Sounds’ at worldwide internet broadcasters Citybeatradio.org, Danceradio.gr and Puresounds.fm. Dj bookings are also coming in steadily and his international DJ career started of with a bang at the Trance Gate event in Italy! It’s clear that Mark has a great future ahead of him.
