Mark Professor has been collecting vinyl in abundance since 1979. As a child he would walk home from school instead of catching the bus, purely to save enough money to buy records! His vast collection now numbers more than 20,000 discs.
Professor's passion for music led him to form a sound system of his own called the Nightlife Experience, which was based in North-West London. He is also a member of the roots sound Stereocity (a reggae subsidiary of the Soca Saga Boys) and recently joined the Wreck It Up Crew as a selector and MC. Mark Professor is a natural on the mic; his toasting style always gets the crowd going. It was Professor who provided the vocals for Right On!'s first radio ad back in 2006.
Mark has a particular love of the 7" record format, his catchphrase being “small ones are more juicy”! Being a member of Stereocity however, Mark has also had the opportunity to cut dub plates with a catalogue of legendary reggae artists such as Al Campbell, Errol Dunkley, Little Roy, Marcia Griffiths, Max Romeo and Prince Allah.
Over the years Professor has promoted a number of successful club nights such as the Reference Library (with Andrew Ibi), Trojan Explosion (with Texas Ranger) and Everything But The Kitchen Sink.
Despite his reputation as a formidable reggae DJ, Professor is adept at playing in a round trip style, leaving no musical stone unturned. He is currently a resident DJ at the monthly Just For The Record sessions at The Heritage Inn in Cricklewood, North West London.
In August 2013 Mark Professor released his debut single, Oystah Card.
