MUM (Manchester Underground Music)
During Mark’s residency at Sankey’s, the top club in Manchester and one of the best in the world, he was surrounded by an abundance of fantastic, albeit unsigned, music. Working with close friend and colleague Jonathan Waller, Mark co-founded Manchester Underground Music, or MUM, in 2009. Their goal was to showcase artists from the Manchester music scene and surrounding areas as the label expanded. To date, MUM has released over 1,000 tracks from artists like Harry Romero, Rulers of the Deep and Joeski. Mark has mastered and managed the A&R for the majority of MUM’s releases, including numerous chart topping tracks and remixes.
Manchester Underground Music is a thriving record label. Mark continues to master and oversee releases, but maintains a smaller role within the label.
Channelled Recordings was established in 2012 to release some of the deeper and more experimental sounds Mark Holmes experienced during various travels around the world. Tracks released by Channelled Recordings are distributed by Jonathan Waller of Strikeforce 360 Media. This label has had a short break in order to allow Mark to explore other music pursuits, but it is building a fantastic release schedule for 2016. Watch this space for new hit music!
