South African DJ, producer, remixer and self confessed music lover Mark Stent’s passion for his craft is plainly evident from every energy-fuelled, funked up DJ set he delivers to his dancefloor. Hailing from the City of Gold, Mark’s love affair with house music began in his early teens and led to a still insatiable obsession with the art of mixing and blending beats. He earned his DJ stripes with an apprenticeship at Johannesburg rave institution Azzuri Lounge, before 1st place in a Black Fly’s Battle of the DJs paved the way to sets at Flyhouse, Nexus, DNA and legendary dance mega-fest H2O.
Emerging behind the decks at infamous Boksburg nightclub Sutra in 2007, what began as a once a month ‘old school’ speed garage set quickly resulted in a full blown residency as punters warmed almost instantly to Mark’s music and magnetic energy. His distinct physical appearance due to a background in competitive bodybuilding made Mark easily recognizable and led to the affectionate and enduring title, “The World’s Strongest DJ”.
