As far as one-man-brands go, the spread wings of Tiësto and his unmistakable crest cannot be misplaced amid Dance music’s untimely global ascent. Packing more landmark moments and genre defining manoeuvres into his career than any other European club asset, you could easily be fooled into thinking that in his 18-year streak of club manipulation he himself defined the genre as we know it. But far from resting on the laurels of his superstar DJ status, the Dutch legends work ethic remains as valiant as ever. As the essential bullet to EDM’s stateside explosion, Dan Carter caught up with the unfathomable icon to talk concept evolution, the American Revolution and the trials and tribulations of changing the game for Dance music across the globe.
Amid his daily airport wanderings and the ongoing pressures of managing the shifting tides of Electronic Dance Music, Mark Brown is a man seldom lost for words of eccentric positivity towards his supreme brand of House music. You must understand, where other labels have stumbled upon success only to bow to the pressures of continuity, Cr2 Records have either been incredibly lucky or far cleverer than their high-hitting head honcho will let on. From ‘Put Your Hands Up For Detroit’ to ‘Love Don’t Let Me Go’, their double-barrel club-to-chart endeavours have certainly left a little leeway for the label to not only raise the bar for independent labels, but also foster the next generation of international Electronic talent. Still live and relentlessly direct in their airwave fuelling escapades, Dan Carter and MYNC moniker master Mark Brown sat down to talk shop in the lead up to a calendar mark that artist and imprint alike have come to call their essential proving grounds.
