Saturday [6.25] – Mark Sixma, DJ Ideal @ Avalon
1735 Vine St, Los Angeles, CA 90028 [10pm-6am, 21+]
Mark Sixma – Mark Sixma inevitably caught the dance music bug growing up in now-famous Breda, the Dutch city that produced Tiësto, Hardwell, and more. After mastering the art of DJing in his teenage years, Mark decided to try his hand at making his own music to play live. One of his first releases, ‘Destination 6’, received ‘Tune of the Week’ status on Armin van Buuren’s radio show, A State Of Trance, and was supported by some of the biggest names on the planet. The next single led to Mark signing with Armada Music. Fade 2 Black was, once again, selected as Tune of the Week on ASOT, truly cementing Mark as one to watch within the world of trance. Armin van Buuren then selected Mark’s tracks for his annual, platinum-selling A State Of Trance compilation three years in a row. In addition to the compilations, Armin also featured one of Mark’s tunes on his Wii Game and gave him the opportunity to remix ‘Minack’, the massive collaboration with Ferry Corsten. Since then Mark has gone on to release on some of the biggest labels in dance music, including but not limited to: Armada, Revealed, and Blackhole Recordings. Also on his list of achievements is the mix compilation ‘Worldwide Trance Sounds Vol. 6’ on Armada Music.
