"AN UNSUNG HERO"
Originally from the UK, Mark Seven now bases himself out of Stockholm where he runs the label Parkway Records. His
particular fascination is with the very early house records when flamboyant disco was first emulated with drum machines and other newly available technologies - the dawn of Chicago house and arguably dance music as we now know it. His sets take in proto house, italo, street soul and early garage, and move into soulful, electronic disco and banging house with a finesse that only comes with decades of dedication. His Parkway Mastermixes, a series of online mixes which collate many of Parkway’s releases and other pivotal gems, have been praised by the likes of Gerd Janson, Todd Terje and Prins Thomas amongst others.
Whilst Mark Seven has a slew of heavy hitters dating back decades, his most important tracks are always his more recent. In 2016, Ari Goldman launched World Building with Mark’s track ‘The Fatal Flaw in Disco’. For many, it became the anthem of the summer. And since then, Mark Seven has released killer after killer on Parkway, including two volumes of ‘Parkwerks - Hard, Raw and Raunchy Dubs’ in 2020 and 2021 that beg for sweaty dance floors communions to become a thing again. While we wait, Mark Seven is a beacon of authenticity promising better times ahead.
