Natural ability along with hard work, humility and optimism can create a recipe for success in this industry. Take New London (CT) born producer Mark Vegan as an example. He has only been producing for barely a year and he is already stirring up notable buzz on SoundCloud with a few superb feel-good remixes. We gravitated towards his music just a few months ago after hearing his Ciara “Love Sex Magic” remix, which has amassed nearly 50k plays on SoundCloud and acclaim from top industry promo channels, blogs and tastemakers. There is an undeniably smooth quality to his remixes that make them easy on the ears and instantly infectious. Inspired by a group of OG producers like Just Blaze, Kanye and 9th Wonder, Mark’s music typically showcases elements of House, Hip-Hop and Soul.
Aside from Mark’s innate ability to produce quality music, he is also putting in the necessary time to improve his craft. Quality over quantity any day of the week but Mark’s showcasing the best of both worlds. He has maintained an impressive pace, releasing a solid remix nearly every week (or two) all while keeping it humble as his plays stack up.
As for mentality, Mark’s got an incredibly bright outlook on life. On a call with us earlier in the week he claimed, “you can’t control what happens in your life, but you can control how you react to it all. So if you train yourself to have more love and compassion, yourself and the people around you will live happier lives.” That’s some real talk and we’re all about it.
Mark’s latest release aligns perfectly with that optimism. If you have the right attitude, things will ultimately work out. Premiered first on Jadamix.fm, here’s Mark’s funky dance rendition of J.Cole’s “Work Out.”
