Mark B is just one of the excellent DJ/producers on Jazz Fudge Recordings, the label most closely associated with Britain-by-way-of-Russia's DJ Vadim. Compared to the usual run of scratch-happy turntablists in underground rap, Mark's much more reliant on drum-machine dinosaurs and samplers. He began recording for Jazz Fudge in 1995, and produced a couple of tracks for Vadim's 1996 debut U.S.S.R. Repertoire (The Theory of Verticality). Mark B released his own first album, Underworld Connection, the following year and collaborated with rapper Blade for 1998's excellent Hitmen for Hire LP. In 1999, he teamed up with Taskforce for the album New Mic Order. Mark B also contributed to the Om compilation Deeper Concentration, Vol. 2.
