Masters Of House Series

The Master of West Coast funky house himself MARK FARINA returns for another Saturday night party alongside an opening set from NT main man LUKE MCKEEHAN. For those who know how deep we can get, this will sell out. Advance tickets are a must!
More about Mark Farina: The "deejay's deejay" Mark Farina has been flying the flag for underground house and quality beats for over 15 years. Shortly after Mark befriended Derrick Carter in 1988 at a record store in Chicago, his passion for House music, and sharing it with the world, exploded. Mark experimented with a deeper style, dropping De La Soul, disco classics andother stuff that wasn’t being played in the main rooms of nightclubs. Mark has been traveling the globe performing 100s of shows, to over one million club goers a year. His House sets take fans on journeys to the jazzy side of Chicago House mixed San Fran style. Some of these sets have been known to last up to 8 hours. And sometimes you’ll find Mark playing in two different rooms at the same party, showcasing his range of rocking the big room sound to the uber-chill. Farina’s taste making skills continue to turn the heads of crowds worldwide and consistently draw new fans to his style of chunky–funky rhythms and deep underground house. URB, MUZIK and BPMMagazines have all had him on their Top DJ’s In The World lists.
