Starting off his solo career in 2009, RAM immediately hit the jackpot with the most talked about track of that year “RAMsterdam”. Supported by all the major trance DJ’s it became the Tune of the Year on ASOT and it was pronounced “best track of the year” by Armin van Buuren.
This track sparked a series of RAM productions entitled “RAMazing”, “RAMplify”, “RAMbition” to name a few, all of which went on to gain huge support from the most revered artists in the trance scene and were released on Armada’s ASOT, AVA, FSOE & Enhanced.
2013 started off brightly with collaborations with Alex M.O.R.P.H. (Grotesque) & Sean Tyas (Beat Boutique) signed to Armada’s AVA.
RAM’s biggest track since “RAMsterdam” however saw the light in October 2013, but the reason it was written is a very sad one: the loss of his beloved wife Amelia. The song was named “RAMelia” and was written in collaboration with composer Geert Huinink and vocalist Susana.
With 7 consecutive plays on A State of Trance, voted Future Favorite with a staggering 61.9% of the votes (the most votes ever @ ASOT) and Armin already calling “RAMelia” an all-time favorite, “RAMelia” eventually was voted #2 in the Tune of the Year on ASOT 2013.

Because of the huge support from the likes of Aly & Fila, Markus Schulz and Armin van Buuren, who played the track on every live set he did, with seven consecutive plays on ASOT and with the big support from all the Trance DJ’s and Trance Families, it was just a matter of time before “RAMelia” reached the top of the list.
After its release “RAMelia” raced to the number 1 spot on the Beatport Trance Top 100 after entering at number 3 and the track even reached the number 15 spot on the Beatport Top 100 Main chart.
But that wasn’t it for 2013. On the 23rd of December “John ‘O Callaghan feat. Audrey Gallagher – Big Sky (Signum & RAM remix)” was released and also ran down the Beatport Trance Top 100 to the #6 spot.
2013 also has been a great year for Grotesque of which he is the resident DJ and programmer. Grotesque has hosted areas at festivals across Europe including the World’s biggest trance festival Electronic Family, Ultrasonic, Summerlake Outdoor as well as hosting their own indoor festival at the Famous Maassilo to 4000 clubbers.

The latest Grotesque concept, Grotesque “In Concert ” with Markus Schulz was a huge success and sold out, proving to be a suitable closing party of a very successful year for both Grotesque and RAM.
In 2014 Grotesque also will be hosting the FSOE & Subculture Amsterdam Weekender and doing a club tour starting at the Gallery (MOS).
In tandem with this RAM has launched the Grotesque radio show, which goes out weekly on Afterhours FM.

With a lot of new things to come, the new track in the “RAM” series, the start of the Grotesque Music label as well as the making of his debut album and great collaborations with the likes of Andy Moor and Christina Novelli, Betsie Larkin, Stine Grove, Sean Tyas, Arctic Moon, Sied van Riel and many more, 2014 looks very bright for RAM.

Despite his busy schedule the first two new tracks of RAM, “Kingdom of Dreams” and the collaboration with Arctic Moon, “Mirakuru” are already signed to ASOT and FSOE and have been released on March 31st ( Mirakuru) and April 28th (Kingdom of Dreams). “Kingdom of Dreams” and “RAMelia” are also on A State of Trance 2014 mixed by Armin van Buuren.

He has played main stage sets at events such as the premium trance club ‘Circus Afterhours’ in Montreal with John Digweed, the ‘Envy’ boat party in Toronto with Shogun, the huge ‘Mandarine’ club in Buenos Aires with Richard Durand, Trance Nation’ and ‘Gatecrasher Global’ both in Holland with Paul Oakenfold, Marco V, Andy Moor, Sean Tyas, Marcel Woods & more plus recently on his own home turf at the mighty ‘Coloursfest’ event in Glasgow alongside the likes of Paul van Dyk, Hardwell, Mark Knight, Markus Schulz, John O’Callaghan, John Askew, Indecent Noise, Bryan Kearney and loads more! Also, this year Los Angeles, New York and Mexico will also be conquered very soon by the tech-trance maestro!

He has released his trance/tech-trance productions and remixes on an impressive array of labels such as Reset (Spinnin), Doorn, Captivating Sounds (Armada), Anjunabeats & Lange to hand pick a few. His finely tuned production skills have been constantly impressing the ‘who’s-who’ of the EDM scene, especially Lange after Mark’s remix of his classic ‘Songless’ single went to number 1 on Beatport! Not forgetting his recent uber-slick remix of the classic Mory Kante ‘Yeke Yeke’ plus bootleg remixes of Coldplay ‘Paradise’ and Chase & Status feat Liam Bailey ‘Blind Faith’. There are a whole host of new releases and projects under way in Mark’s newly built recording studio, including his new single ‘My Love’ forthcoming on Simon Patterson’s ‘Night Vision’ label, a remix of Above & Beyond’s modern day classical piece ‘Sun In Your Eyes’ and also a remix of Fabio XB & Linnea Schossow’s new single ‘Be My All’, which is forthcoming on Enhanced Recordings.

The Outburst Radioshow/podcast hase a huge global fan base and it continues to stay true to it’s trance and tech-trance beginnings. This weekly 2 hour show and iTunes podcast has recently boasted huge guest DJ mixes from some of the scene’s biggest names such as Ferry Corsten, Gareth Emery, Judge Jules, Fergie, Arty, Lange, Rank 1, Andy Moor, Michael Woods, Sean Tyas & Orjan Nilsen, and coming up later in the year the legendary Paul Oakenfold and John ‘00’ Fleming will also be making very special guest appearances among others!
The Scottish ‘Vestax DJ20’ is a brand new DJ poll that was launched last year to help promote and increase awareness of Scotland’s very own home-grown talent. Scotland’s DJ’s have been pioneering Electronic Dance Music since the very beginning but all too often they havn’t received the recognition they truly deserve, until now that is. The people spoke in their droves and voted for Mark, putting him in a very well deserved 2nd place in the poll!
