Episode # 4: How an encounter with electronic music changed the life of a teenager

By 1988 Erasure enjoyed their first # 1 album in the UK with "The Innocents", which has been certified double-platinum in the UK and platinum in the US. It was in the same year that a 16-year-old teenager encountered Erasure's music for the first time. Instantly hooked he decides to become involved in music himself.

This conversation touches on the influence Erasure has had on Mark's life and his music, how digital and analogue music production differs and more!! LISTEN HERE
