Rebel Radio Ep. 2: DJ Nu-Mark - Craft is Key
As a platform that blossomed in the heart of the underground and grew to prominence alongside the success of over a thousand talented artists, EDM.com is incredibly proud to present the second episode of Rebel Radio.
By exploring the notion that all culture starts in the underground, and that underground influences continuously spawn new mainstream movements, Rebel Radio aims to discover the elements that contribute to the creation of a successful path, and to unravel the mysteries surrounding the process of emergence from 'the underground'.
All too often, we hear fans disparaging styles of music for becoming 'too mainstream', or alternatively, on certain artists and sounds for being ‘too underground’. Rebel Radio seeks to uncover the inherent misconception present in this distinction, and to reveal the importance of both sides of this creative spectrum.
Each week, Rebel Radio will explore the journeys of those who do it best in all areas of youth culture. We learn how they stay creative in the face of relentless distractions and setbacks, how they find inspiration and influence, as well as how they inspire and influence others. Each episode provides insights into the essence of entrepreneurship, of taking control of one’s own destiny, and of building businesses and legacies against all odds.
Our second guest, Mark Potsic pka DJ Nu-Mark, is a hip hop producer and DJ - a key member of Jurassic 5, as well as the owner of Hot Plate Records. He began as a mobile DJ here in Los Angeles and has since become one of the most innovative DJs in international music culture. We sat down to talk about his career highs like ”What’s Golden”, as well as his recent reunion with Jurassic 5 at Coachella after a seven year break.
He also shared with us that he is putting out an album called "TradeMark" with Slim Kid Tre from The Pharcyde, and is working on his own interview show called Hot Plate where he interviews artists over dinner (dinner with Nu-Mark? Count us in!).
Tune in for all the details, and join the Rebel Radio movement!
