Mark Sixma (Netherlands)
Mark Sixma (M6) was born 23 rd of february 1983 in the Netherlands . Early on in his life he discovered his passion for music. Ranging from house to rock and even classical piano pieces. Especially the latter encouraged him to learn how to play the keys which proved to be a great benefit later on. At high school he started playing records at school parties. When he heard 'System F - out of the blue' he started to listen to trance music more and more. He also started to produce some tracks in Fruityloops with a helping hand from Paul Moelands ( Re :locate /Octagen ).
It wasn't until the year 2005 that he started to put more time and effort into this. His tracks started to increase in quality and received some support by DJ's with their own radioshows like Manuel le Saux , St John and Guto Putti . Not long after that Basic Beat contacted him and after hearing some of his work they signed two of his tracks (freak electrique & techmatic ) which were the first to be released on the new sublabel Reflexion. 'Freak electrique ' was also featured on Riley and Durrant's mix compilation CD 'a quest for trance 2'. Mark's latest tracks under M6 and Project 6 guise have found support by top jocks like Tiesto, Ferry Corsten, Armin van Buuren, Paul van Dyk, Judge Jules, Gareth Emery and many more.
His tracks are being released on labels like Armada, Black hole Recordings, Fektive, Five AM, and Octavius Recordings. After graduating at the University of Tilburg on the major social psychology in September 2006 he has more time for making music than ever before. So be sure to keep an eye on him!
