Starting out in the 1990s as Future Loop Foundation, Mark Barrott released seven albums between 1996 and 2008. Four of these albums are published by KMM&P.
Mark has also composed music for numerous films & TV shows. In 2002, he founded one of the world’s leading music consultancies, providing music services to the luxury hospitality industry worldwide.
In 2008 Mark founded the highly respected International Feel label in Uruguay, and tempted DJ Harvey out of studio retirement for his genre-defying Locussolus project. Mark followed it with original work from the likes of Quiet Village and Gatto Fritto and remixes from artists such as cosmic disco dons Daniele Baldelli and Todd Terje.
Initially preferring the freedom of working anonymously, Mark has recently admitted to contributing a large part of the International Feel catalogue himself, via noms de disques such as Rocha, Bepu N’Gali, Flights of Fancy, Boys from Patagonia and The Young Gentleman’s Adventure Society.
The summer of 2014 saw Mark finally release his solo album Sketches from an Island. Its beautiful artwork and quirky take on the music that eventually metamorphized into chill-out, has become the label’s most successful and acclaimed release. This was followed by a second album in 2016. Summer 2019 will see the release of EP Sketches from a Distant Ocean, recorded at the birthplace of International Feel, on Uruguay’s Atlantic coast.
Stand-alone EPs Bush Society, Cascades, Music for Presence and The Pathways of our Lives have cemented Mark Barrott’s place as ‘one of the world’s finest purveyors of music to chill out to – he is the Master of Sunset Music’ (Pitchfork).
Record Store Day 2018 saw the release of his critically acclaimed remixes of the Tears for Fears classic Head over Heels and Summer 2019 will see him release the third volume of the lauded Hostal La Torre compilation series.
