Headlining HAHA this Friday July 5 at GoodGod is Birmingham producer Mark E, who first made his ‘mark’ – pun intended dear readers, I’m here all day – through his re-edits, with his ten-minute rework of Womack & Womack’s ‘Baby, I’m Scared Of You,’ piquing the ears of one Giles Peterson, who then introduced it to thousands of receptive listeners.

Mark E soon graduated towards original productions and remixes, launching his own label MERC, and using it as a forum to hone a sound that conflated house and disco. Acclaimed remixes of Cagedbaby’s ‘Hello There’ and Matthew Dear’s single ‘Little People (Black City)’ introduced Mark E to the Ghostly/Spectral fold, and it was through that label that he released his first artist album, Stone Breaker, back in 2011. Simon CaldwellMagda Bytnerowicz and HAHA residents D&D will also be spinning wax in support on the night, with $20 presale tickets available online ahead of the event.
