UK-based Mark Fanciulli has had an incredible start in the electronic music scene. Besides releasing on labels such as Saved Records, Leena Music, Rejected, Area Remote and Defected, playing gigs at some of the best clubs in Europe, Asia, Australia and South America he also got supported by Pete Tong (Radio 1), Maceo Plex, Seth Troxler, Laurent Garnier, Maya Jane Coles.
His single ‘Sacrifice‘ (stream below) which was released on Saved early in the year created an initial buzz at Miami WMC and even got him nominated for best single at DJ Mag‘s ‘Best Of British’ awards. He kindly took the time to fill in the gaps for our LSD FAZE TIME below.
My name is Mark Fanciulli but you might know me as Mark Fanciulli. I was born in Bromley and grew up in Maidstone. When I was a child my idol was Ian Wright, because I supported Arsenal from a young age. When I was 14, I started to listen to dance music. It was then when I realised that I wanted to carve a career in the music industry and decided to study Music Production at College. Since then I have played across the globe and released music on some of my favourite labels.
One of my best gigs I played was at El Row in Barcelona.It was so much fun as it was a real party atmosphere and it was my birthday as well.
One of the best gigs I have been to was Drumcode at Berghain. I loved watching the DJ’s play longer sets.
Now I live in Larkfield with my Fiance. In my house you can find a lot of laughter and my refrigerator is usually full with beer and lots of fruit & veg. I enjoy searching for new music and watching foreign films a lot. I can spend hours looking through Beatport, Discogs and Youtube. One of my favorite places to visit is Los Angeles, because I love the feeling the city gives me.
On weekdays I work in the studio on new music and on weekends I usually play gigs.
My favorite song at the moment is George Fitzgerald – Child (Geeeman rework). A film I watched lately and really liked was Argo. The last series I watched and loved was Breaking Bad.
I am very inspired by lots of people, I couldn’t name just one. My dream is to continue to do what I’m doing. My worst nightmare is clearing a floor.
I love interesting people and hate divas.
I am addicted to Salt & Vinegar crisps, I just cannot stop eating them.
I get totally fucked up, when I drink too many shots. The next day I need to stay at home and hibernate.
Local Suicide reminds me of several great sites but rolled into one.
Tomorrow I will be getting my promos in order. Next month I will be playing in Spain and Belgium. Next year I will be getting married. In 10 years I hope to be living in Los Angeles and collaborating with some talented artists.
If I wasn’t a DJ, I would be an accountant.
If my life was a Hollywood movie, Dustin Hoffman would have the main role, because my friends call me Rain Man. If I could have sex with anyone, it would be Angelina Jolie.
If I was a car, I would be a 66 Ford Mustang. If I was an animal, I would be a Border Terrier. If I was a drug I would be Prozac. If I was an invention, I would be a computer. If I could date myself, I would go record shopping.
If I could play with anyone it would be Laurent Garnier. I would like to collaborate with Victor Simonelli.
If I had only one wish, it would be to be able to keep what I’m doing.
I would never leave myself logged onto a mates computer, because its asking for trouble.
My word of advice to the reader would be to Do what makes you happy.
