Mark 7 * A Salute To The Men Of Vauxhall.



Mark 7, record collector, proprietor of the esteemed 'Juswax' record store, lives in Sweeden, looks a bit like a pirate and owns some of the rarest records on the globe.

Marks mixes, like his records, rather rare things, he is VERY secretive about the tracks he spins and almost never allows his sets to be recorded, the ones that manage to make there way to the public domain are inevitably mused over and picked through in the greatest detail by internet nerds across the planet. This mix in particular was released last year in conjunction with the people at Oki-Ni and a limited number were given away with the release of Marks 'Travelogue' E.P.

Taken from Mark's set at Horse Meat Disco in May 2009 with the artwork designed by Mark himself, only 100 copies were made.

'A Salute To The Men Of Vauxhall' is a 3 hour mix of ecstatic vocal disco, edgy hi-nrg, all the way through to late-night boogie and down-tempo sleaze.
