Mark Farina has solidified himself in the world of Dance Music as a trailblazing DJ, Producer, tastemaker and bona fide House Music icon. After 3 decades crisscrossing the globe, he shows no signs of slowing down remaining innovative, humble, and firmly rooted in the underground.
“I look at my job as a ‘modern-day traveling minstrel’ bringing new music to as many places as I can and exposing audiences to obscure records that otherwise might go hidden.”
As an early House Music pioneer in the late 80’s, Farina’s history includes an impressive long-standing residency at Smart Bar Chicago and a job at the legendary Gramaphone Records. In the 90s, Mark pushed musical boundaries and blended hip hop with downtempo grooves to create an entirely new genre, “Mushroom Jazz”. Eventually, Mark made San Francisco his home as his legendary DJ sets sparked a constant demand in clubs and festivals across the US. The Bay Area proved to be a perfect match for Mark’s musical vision and he released a string of major mix compilations including his Mushroom Jazz series. With a tireless passion for playing extended sets, B2B shows with fellow House Music icons, or playing both of his signature styles on 2 stages on the same night, Farina continues to entertain his incredible fans all over the globe with over 100 shows per year.
Dallas is lucky to have Debbie Does Disco helping to keep the culture thriving, who will warm up the evening. Owner of previous Deep Ellum streetwear store Epocha, Brandon Epocha has been spending his time curating some of the coolest underground House Music parties in Dallas with his all analog sound system. Circle the date and we will see you there with your dancing shoes on.
The event is free to attend and there is parking available at 1212 Jackson St garage, free with validation with purchase at any Discovery District vendor. Get down and boogie or kick it on the lawn and listen with a cocktail from Double Tap. Lawn blankets and lawn chairs are welcome but no outside food or beverages from beyond the District.
Join us the last Thursday of every month from 6-10 pm in The Globe for a new monthly music series in the AT&T Discovery District
