About my new favorite fashion brand Seek 'n Hide: first of all these are supercool and crazy comfortable pieces. But second, it's sustainable all the way: how many brands you know that go the extra mile and actually travel to places like Equador to visit the workers that spend up to 2 weeks on one piece?? Handcrafted, fairtrade and organic. Be sure to check out Picture by Tristan Melano

Often, producers aren't credited as much as they could be in my opinion. Luckily in e.g. hip hop, more and more you see a mention of the producer in the title/artist description. This here is another good step in the recognition of a producer's work: more credit for the remixer…/01/30/spotify-remix-cre…/

Spotify stated in a blog post that remixers will now receive credit for their remixes by having the streams count towards their monthly listeners.

Sooooo.. I promised to bring you guys news before the end of the year, so here I am I am super happy to announce there will be new Mark Otten music getting released soon. Cannot give more details at this point, very soon I will though. It’s so touching to see how many messages, replies etc. I’ve received of people eagerly awaiting new sounds, thank you so much for that!

I wish you a splendid, musically awesome, healthy and most of all loving 2018! Hope to see you around, in person or online

[Producer talk] This week I am once again discovering the big potential benefit of separating the production and mixing process in making music.

In today's music creation, more often than not, the two are heavily intertwined. This is a beautiful thing I think because it can lead to new possibilities and sounds. It can however also keep you from reaching the best mix for your project. Putting your attention on only the end mix might be valuable for you as well

I played this Spektre track at my Forestland gig last summer and still love it to pieces. This is sooo exactly what I'm into right now:

Amsterdam Dance Event 2017, what a ride.. ADE once again made me realize why I love my hometown so much and what it's giving us. Such vibrant energy, you could almost touch it. So many beautiful (spontaneous) connections. Such inspiration.. so much to be thankful for!

ADE kick off!! First off to see the legends Gabriel & Dresden at Westerunie! #ade #letsgo

One of the things I love to work on, is writing songs. Katty and me had a great time writing and recording the vocals for the new Aurosonic & Katty Heath. Thanks to Armin van Buuren for premiering 'My Good Place' on A State Of Trance radio yesterday!
