what can i say about mark farina? to say that he has been the single largest influence on our playing style, musical tastes, and passion for funky and uniquely off the beaten track house and downtempo music is a good start. over the years we have introduced hundreds of people to his albums and mix sets; practically dragging people out by their collars to see his live shows only to have them hit the record shops a day later to get their fill of mushroom jazz and om records. for anyone who hasn't had the chance to listen to his mushroom jazz sets or his house albums, i implore you to check out his music and to buy tickets the next time he makes his way through town. this posting was a special request from saaraa, i hope you all enjoy this great mix of house, disco, jazz and downtempo beats, rhythms and grooves.
