Mark Slee is a resident DJ and co-founder of House-Heads, a San Francisco collective throwing unique underground and private events focused on forward-thinking dance music. He is also one half of Manju Masi, a collaboration with long-time partner in crime Atish.
Born and raised outside Chicago, Mark grew up on a steady diet of electronic music. Early influences came from eclectic acts like Orbital, Aphex Twin, and Underworld, balanced against an exposure to the more dancefloor-oriented sounds of Chicago house. A student of the piano from a young age, he quickly developed a keen interest in audio production and DJing - an interest he has now cultivated for 15 years.
Living in San Francisco since 2005, Mark has evolved a style of DJing that uniquely reflects his personality. Technical and introspective, he brings a thoughtful approach to constructing sets that tickle the mind, at the same time topping things off with a healthy dose of groovy, quirky fun. Understanding audio to be one avenue of a larger experience, 2011 has seen him return to original production, crafting custom-tailored tracks for the unique events he produces with House-Heads, often complementing them with interactive LED sculptures that he also creates.
