Mark Farina is a DJ and producer, known for his Chicago house, acid jazz and downtempo works and recently known also from house compilations, El Divinio. He is primarily identified with the house music scene in San Francisco, California, where he resides, but DJs widely around the world.
Gangstercast 69 bings Farina’s usual or unusual variety of underground chunky funky goodness to new listeners and old heads alike. For the mix he’s selected some goodies from his arsenal of new underground jammies with just a vibe in mind to fit this Gangstercast.
For Farina the House Gangster movement mean is about capturing the spirit of the days when there were true gangsters listening to house in chicago in the late eighties, a certain rawness, toughness, trackyness and attitude that combines into certain style of house.
“White, latino, black…the only sound of the underground in the streets was house music”
